Why Vision Therapy?
Vision therapy is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: therapy for your eyes. Some vision problems simply can’t be repaired with eyeglasses or contacts; vision therapy serves as an effective and non-invasive way to improve you or your child’s vision skills. Vision therapy works not only with your eyes, but also with the parts of your brain that affect vision. A vision therapy session is structured similarly to a physical therapy section, in that you will be led through a series of exercises and use various tools, such as filters, prisms, and computerized visual activities. Vision therapy can help strengthen oculomotor control, visual information processing, coordination, and much more.
Contrary to popular belief, both children and adults can benefit from vision therapy. People who suffer from learning disorders may find vision therapy to be especially beneficial, as many learning disorders negatively impact vision. Another group of people who may benefit greatly from vision therapy is people whose vision hasn’t been helped by traditional glasses or contacts. If your problem is visual processing, eyeglasses simply are not a viable or effective solution. People who are living with eye movement disorders may also be aided by vision therapy, as it has been proven to make eye movement more accurate and deliberate.
