WHAT IS VISION THERAPY
Vision therapy is a series of exercises designed to help “teach” your eyes and visual system how to respond and react better to the information received.
Think of vision therapy as physical therapy for your eyes. Vision therapy appointments involve a series of assessments and different exercises; each designed to improve your visual skills. The ultimate goal of vision therapy is to improve the coordination of your visual system; something that can not be treated with the traditional use of glasses or contact lenses.
Vision therapy can help treat symptoms of:
- Amblyopia (lazy eye).
- Strabismus (crossed eyes or eye turn).
- Eye alignment problems.
- Focusing issues.
Vision therapy can also help with a variety of visual and perceptual problems that may occur as a result of a brain injury.
Vision therapy takes advantage of your brain’s neuroplasticity, or the ability to change your brain’s structure and function. Every program is individualized and success is dependent on factors such as commitment, duration, and the severity of the issue. Your eye care team will go out of their way to help you be successful.
WHAT’S IN A VISION THERAPY SESSION?
Vision therapy sessions differ depending on the patient’s needs. In some cases, your eye care professional may use a series of different prisms, lenses, and filters. Other exercises include computer-based programs, balance boards, and metronomes to help benefit your visual system.
The type and variety of tools used depends on what is deemed appropriate for your situation and what you wish to achieve.
VISION THERAPY & YOUR CHILD
Children may significantly benefit from vision therapy. If your child is having trouble focusing or seeing in school, or if they have amblyopia or strabismus, they may be candidates for vision therapy.
