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 teaming,
  • eye focusing abilities,
  • eye movements, and/or
  • 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.

Vision therapy can be used for a variety of conditions including but not limited to learning-related vision problems, poor binocular coordination, strabismus, amblyopia, stress-induces visual difficulties, vision difficulties as a result of a stroke or brain injury or to enhance visual skills needed for sports.
