Some visual conditions cannot be treated adequately with just glasses, contact lenses and/or surgery, and are best resolved through a program of Vision Therapy.

What is Vision Therapy?

Vision Therapy is an individualized, supervised, treatment program designed to correct visual-motor and/or perceptual-cognitive deficiencies. Vision Therapy sessions include procedures designed to enhance the brain’s ability to control:

  • eye alignment
  • eye tracking and eye teaming
  • eye focusing abilities
  • eye movements
  • visual processing

Visual-motor skills and endurance are developed through the use of specialized computer and optical devices, including therapeutic lenses, prisms and filters. During the final stages of therapy, the patient’s newly acquired visual skills are reinforced and made automatic through repetition and by integration with motor and cognitive skills.

Who Benefits from Vision Therapy?

Children and adults with visual challenges, such as:

  • Sports Vision Improvement
    Strong visual skills are critical to sports success. Sports require your eyes to instruct your hands and body about what to do! We can measure and successfully improve eye-hand coordination, visual reaction time, peripheral (side) vision, eye focusing, eye tracking, eye teaming, visualization skills and more with Vision Therapy. Find out how children and adults improve coordination and sports ability through Vision Therapy.

Vision Therapy can be the answer to many visual problems. Please don’t hesitate to contact our office with your questions.
