What is Vision Therapy?

Vision Therapy is a program of care with specific physician prescribed activities to help correct and improve treatable visual problems. It is individualized to you and your needs.

Hey Parents!

When reading or doing homework, does your child:
Complain of double vision
Get headaches
Rub their eyes
Complain of eye strain
Lose their place
See words coming in and out of focus?
It could be their vision.

*In a 2017 study, 59 out of 94 children with a learning disability were found to have an underlying and treatable visual dysfunction. Read the study here.

Also called, Oculomotor Dysfunction, often times patients with this struggle skip lines and words when reading, or often have to reread material. It can drastically affect school and sports performance as well.

Eye Tracking Problems

80% of our brain energy goes into processing visual information! Studies show that over 85% of people who suffer a concussion (even a mild one) or a TBI suffer from one or more visual difficulties that glasses can't fix such as binocular and eye tracking problems, feeling overwhelmed with "too much" visual information, fatigue, avoidance of "busy locations"... and much more can follow the injury. After a concussion or TBI, vision therapy can help regain control of your life and your vision.

Concussion and

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

The most common binocular dysfunction is Convergence Insufficiency, and it is when the eyes are unable to work together efficiently when looking at near.

 

These vision problems often cause common symptoms like headaches, eye strain, words that double or move around on the page or come in and out of focus. Although your child may be struggling with these problems, they may not know it is abnormal! Ask them or take THIS SURVEY with them! Even adults can continue to struggle in their college, work and hobbies.

Binocular Vision Problems 

"Eye turn," "wall-eyed," "cross-eyed," "squint"... these all refer to a condition called Strabismus, which is when one or both eyes may be turned in, out, up, or down. It can be all the time, or it can happen sometimes, maybe when you are tired, or sick, or at the end of the day you or your friends/family notice it more often. Eye muscle surgery does not always need to be done and there are additional options that can often be considered.

Eye Turns

Amblyopia is also known as "lazy eye," is when the eyes are healthy but the vision in one or both eyes cannot see normal 20/20 - even with new glasses or contacts! 

 

Often "patching" the eye is recommended, and although this is an okay start, patching doesn't address the real underlying problem.

Lazy Eye

We diagnose and treat a variety of conditions! 

Such as: 

  • Reduced Stereopsis
        (poor depth perception), 

  • Suppression of Binocular Vision
        (brain actually turns off one eye!) 

  • Accommodative Dysfunction    
        (poor eye focusing)

  • Visual-Motor Dysfunction      
        (poor hand eye coordination)

  • Visual-Vestibular Dysfunction
        (poor balance, dizziness, vertigo)

  • Computer Vision Syndrome

  • Poor Peripheral Awareness

  • Visual Processing Dysfunction

  • and more...

Lots More...
