What Is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is like “physical therapy”, but rather than treating the body's muscles, it works on strengthening the eyes and ocular system. It is an excellent rehabilitative tool that has not only improved our patients’ visual skills but has also improved their emotional wellbeing. By enabling them to regain their independence and engage in daily activities, they become more confident. Such therapy is beneficial for children and adults. In the case of children, it can treat problems related to learning disabilities for improved academic performance.

Common Symptoms That May Require Rehabilitation

What Is The First Step?

The first step requires a comprehensive ocular examination to determine if therapy is the best option. If it is deemed necessary, the doctor will prescribe an individualized therapy program to train the eyes to work together, to track and perceive sensory data, and to properly utilize focusing skills. Strengthening basic motor-visual skills improves vision, allowing people with neurological complications to enjoy many activities such as reading, writing, playing games, and recognizing the faces of friends and family.

If you or someone you know is struggling with motor-visual skills, or if you suspect that you may be having such difficulty, schedule a comprehensive evaluation with yoir eye doctor to determine if vision therapy is an option.
