Vision Therapy

Vision Therapy

In a nutshell, vision therapy teaches your eyes and brain to be better teammates.

Vision therapy is safe, drug-free, and effective for both children and adults! While visual acuity (the "20/20" part of vision) requires glasses to improve, visual skills such as tracking together along a line of text must be learned during development, these skills can also be improved later in life at any age.

It is estimated that 1 in 10 children have a vision problem severe enough to affect their learning in school, but school vision screenings can miss up to half of these problems. A comprehensive vision exam with a developmental optometrist checks all aspects of eye health, vision, and visual skills, and can ensure you or your child is not struggling unnecessarily with an undiagnosed vision problem. 

Who is a good candidate for Vision Therapy ?

Step 1:  Symptoms

Our main focus is on symptom reduction for functional vision problems.  We want to make life easier for our customers by making visual tasks smooth and effortless, ultimately making things like schoolwork, reading, or sports more successful.  Imagine no more of those notorious homework battles! 

**This program is not intended for the purpose of improving eyesight, eliminating the need for glasses, eye-alignment, or improvement of visual acuity.**

Step 2: If you have a diagnosis…

You do not need to have a formal diagnosis to do the Vision Therapy  if the Symptoms are present.  If you have seen a developmental optometrist, the most common diagnosis this program is designed for is Convergence Insufficiency or Convergence Excess.

While we would love to help everyone, there are several diagnoses that are NOT APPROPRIATE for the Vision Therapy .  These diagnoses require individualized, in-office program and should be seen and treated by a developmental optometrist.  These diagnoses include:

  • Strabismus – Esotropia, Exotropia, lazy eye, eye turn, hypertropia, hypotropia
  • Amblyopia – lazy eye, one eye sees better than the other eye with best glasses or contact lens prescription
  • Brain Injury (TBI/ABI) – this includes stroke, head trauma, eye injury, concussions
People with perfect eyesight can have debilitating functional vision problems.

Eyesight and vision aren’t the same thing. Eyesight is how well your eyes see. Vision is how well your brain processes that information. Many functional vision problems are overlooked because people think it can’t apply to them. That needs to end. Functional vision supports nearly every aspect of your life:

• Focus and attention
• Reading
• Writing
• Problem-solving
• Sports
• Coordination
• Homework
• Schoolwork
• Professional performance
• Behavior
• Relationships
