Vision Therapy

Some visual conditions cannot be treated adequately with just glasses, contact lenses and/or patching, 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, and/or
  • visual processing.

Our vision therapy program is designed for the integration of visual motor and sensory motor skills. Patients begin conservatively with little or no movement. As one's skill set increases, the therapy will integrate more movement and more complicated schemes of tracking and reading. Yes this is hard work, but it is so much fun to master these skills.

In order to maximize your vision system, patients will be working 45-50 minutes each week in the vision therapy office. However, working in the office one session per week is not sufficient to correct one's vision system. Patients will need to teach themselves and their brains - how to work with the light and images coming into your eyes differently, and more efficiently. This takes practice, practice, and more practice. You will be asked to work 10-20 minutes per day, four (4) days per week outside of the office. Patients will be provided with a comprehensive home therapy manual containing instructions on how to do the home therapy procedures. They will also given tools for the home therapy, including charts, lenses, red/green goggles, computer program, and more.
