What Is Vision Therapy?

Vision Therapy is an individualized, supervised treatment program designed to correct visual-motor and/or perceptual-cognitive deficiencies. Our Vision Therapy program offers a full range of services to patients of all ages, from children to older adults. Some visual conditions cannot be treated adequately with glasses, contact lenses, surgery, and/or eye patching and are best resolved through a program of Vision Therapy.

Vision Therapy Goals

In Vision Therapy, we strive to improve all aspects of the visual system including:

  • Tracking: Moving the eyes smoothly across a printed page or while following a moving object and being able to quickly and accurately locate and inspect a series of stationary objects.

  • Accommodation (Focusing): The ability to sustain clarity at the near point as well as looking quickly from far to near and back without blur.

  • Eye Teaming or Binocularity: Aligning both eyes at the same place at the same time and moving them together as a team –smoothly, equally, and accurately.

  • Depth Perception: Quickly and accurately judging the distance and speeds of objects – such as catching a ball.

  • Eye / Hand / Body Coordination: How the hands, feet & body respond to visual information.

  • Visual Perception: Understanding what is seen and integrating vision with the other senses.

As a child’s eyes develop, it is not uncommon for a number of problems to occur. Beyond blurred vision, children can develop a number of other visual and perceptual difficulties that are often not detected by a simple vision exam.
