What is Vision Therapy?
There are certain types of vision problems that are not correctable with contact lenses, glasses or surgery.
Vision therapy is an individualized treatment program using specialized eye exercises and equipment that help teach the patient how to use their eyes correctly and helps them better understand what they see.
What does vision therapy treat?
Lazy eye, or amblyopia, is the loss or lack of development of central vision in one eye that is unrelated to any eye health problem and is not correctable with lenses.
Strabismus is a condition in which both eyes do not look at the same place at the same time. It occurs when an eye turns in (cross eyed), out, up, or down and is usually caused by poor eye muscle control or a high amount of farsightedness.
Convergence insufficiency is the inability to maintain binocular function (keeping the two eyes working together) while working at a near distance.
Accommodative insufficiency is a condition in which a patient has an inability to focus or sustain focus at near.
Oculomotor dysfunction occurs when the muscles around the eye are not properly coordinated.
