What is Vision Therapy?

Vision Therapy trains our eyes and brain to work together.

How does it work?

The program is made up of a series of visual exercises carefully tailored to the patients’ visual needs.

As part of the therapeutic process, vision therapists turn to various tools, such as specialized lenses, prisms, patches, filters, balance boards, and digital simulations to train the eye-brain connection.

Isn't 20/20 Vision Enough?

If a child has been told that they have‘20/20 sight’, it means that they can clearly see the letters on the chart 20 feet away.

The child may excel in reading the letters on the vision charts on the wall, yet lack the necessary visual skills needed for reading, writing, and learning — all of which can adversely impact their performance in school and in sports.

Why do vision therapy?

Alternative to surgery 

Surgery is usually limited to correcting eye turns by adjusting eye muscles. However, vision therapy is often the preferred treatment method as it gets to the root of the problem without any added risks or side eff etcs.

Success & confidence building

Developing visual skills can lead children to become better learners and students. In fact, vision therapy can be a key component in preparing a child for higher education, as increased success can lead to a rise in self esteem and greater confidence in one’s abilities.
