Vision Therapy is a form of physical therapy for the eyes and brain. It is considered a highly effective non-surgical treatment for many common visual problems like lazy eye, crossed eyes, focusing and tracking, and other problems that are often overlooked. These skill deficits can hinder an individual's ability to sustain visual attention and interfere with his or her ability to process visual information. The symptoms of common vision dysfunction include eye strain/fatigue, blurred vision, double vision, loss of place, and headaches. Since glasses alone may not resolve these problems, Vision Therapy may be the treatment of choice.
Vision Therapy is a structured program of exercises performed under an optometrist's supervision and individualized to fit the visual needs of each patient.
Through the integration of in-office and home-based programming, our nationally recognized Vision Therapy specialists have designed a treatment regimen which is timely and cost effective. The Vision Therapy program has made a big difference in the lives of our adult and pediatric patients.
