Think of vision therapy as physical therapy for the eyes and brain. It’s a highly effective, nonsurgical treatment for many common visual problems such as lazy eye, cross eye, and visual perception anomalies. It is designed to resolve vision problems that can contribute to learning disabilities and is dedicated to improving and enhancing people’s visual performance.
All of these visual problems can interfere with:
- Eye-teaming skills: the ability to coordinate two eyes at the same time.
- Learning and the ability to pay attention.
- Eye-focusing skills: the ability to focus eyes for a sustained amount of time (e.g., reading).
- Eye-tracking skills: the ability to point eyes on printed material or to move eyes from word to word and through rows of sentences.
Both children and adults who complain of symptoms such as blurred vision, lack of mental focus, or double vision may be suffering from one or more of these problems. With vision therapy, the necessary eye coordination and other essential visual skills can be acquired for better performance in the classroom or at work.
