vision therapy

Vision therapy is an individualized and supervised treatment program designed to correct visual-motor and visual perceptual deficiencies in both children and adults. It is just like physical therapy but for your eyes. In addition to eye and brain exercises, lenses (“training lenses”), prisms, filters, patches, or balance boards may be used. The goal of vision therapy is to improve and enhance visual efficiency and visual perceptual skills. Once treated, a patient can benefit from a positive lifelong change in overall comfort, performance, and quality of life. Vision therapy is designed to help patients of all ages and with various diagnoses. It benefits children who struggle with school performance or emotional and behavioral challenges that are triggered by functional vision problems.
