The Key to Better Visual Health

Vision therapy is considered 'physical therapy' for the eyes and brain. It resolves vision problems that cannot be treated adequately with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgery alone, including binocular vision problems. This includes conditions common in children, such as amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (crossed eyes).

Additionally, it is a powerful tool for improving visual skills that affect reading, learning, sports performance, and quality of life.

Rather than applying a one-size-fits-all approach, our therapies are customized based on a thorough assessment of the patient's visual skills and challenges. This non-formulaic treatment approach allows us to address vision's unique neurological and behavioral components.

Signs That Your Child Needs Vision Therapy

Your child may see clearly but still have vision problems that impact their ability to perform in school or participate in sports effectively. Often, children are also unable to vocalize any issues they are experiencing, which is why you should look out for these symptoms:

  • Frequent eye rubbing or squinting
  • Avoidance of reading and close activities
  • Short attention span for visual tasks
  • Covering one eye
  • Difficulty with eye tracking or following a moving object smoothly
  • Poor hand-eye coordination
  • Double or blurry vision
  • Tilting the head to one side
  • Difficulty with visual memory
  • Crossed or drifting eyes

Our Vision Therapy Program

Our skilled optometrist and vision therapist customize each program based on the patient’s unique visual abilities. Here’s what makes our program unique and effective:

  1. Personalized Assessment: Each vision therapy journey begins with an evaluation that includes tests to assess visual skills like processing abilities and eye tracking. This allows our team to develop a personalized treatment plan targeting specific areas needing improvement.
  2. Tailored Therapy Sessions: Our therapy sessions are conducted one-on-one in our office. Each session aims to correct the visual issue, using tools and exercises that may include therapeutic lenses and more.
  3. A Multifaceted Approach: In addition to in-office therapy, we provide patients with exercises to perform at home, reinforcing visual skills learned during office visits and accelerating progress.
  4. Neuro-Optometry: This evaluation focuses on the neurological aspects of vision, which involves the pathways that connect the eyes to the brain and the areas within the brain that process visual information. It helps patients who have experienced visual disturbances caused by neurological incidents such as traumatic brain injuries, stroke, or concussion.
  5. Behavioral Optometry: Behavioral optometry takes a holistic approach to vision care, considering how your visual status affects your daily behavior and how alterations in vision can alter cognitive processes. This approach is particularly beneficial for children and adults experiencing visual difficulties that affect their academic or occupational performance.
