Vision Therapy

In the most basic of terms, vision therapy corrects eye problems that cannot be treated with prescription lenses. Above all, successful therapy takes the part of the brain that controls vision and the eyes and “trains” them to reform an effective partnership.

Though this form of therapy is somewhat controversial. However, studies have shown that this non-invasive and non-surgery approach has helped improve eye-brain coordination issues that interfere with learning in children and adults. The brain has a large amount of neuroplasticity, giving it the ability to adapt and change in response to external stimuli. Similar to learning how to ride a bike (as opposed to exercising muscles), vision therapy uses training techniques that can change the function of this neuroplasticity. As a result, helping your brain and eyes work together again.

Many patients consider vision therapy as a beneficial form of vision correction. Additionally, doctors customize each session to meet every individual patient's needs. This ensures they are getting the most specialized tests and exercises for their specific vision problem. In addition to correcting vision issues, therapy has been able to ease symptoms associated with computer vision syndrome.

Vision problems vision therapy can correct:

  • Amblyopia (lazy eye)
  • Strabismus (crossed eye)
  • Phorias (eye alignment)
  • Eye movement disorders
  • Accommodative (focusing) disorders
