Vision: More Than 20/20

Vision is more than 20/20 eyesight. Nearly all humans are born with the potential for good eyesight, but vision – the ability to identify, interpret, and understand what is seen – is learned and developed, starting from birth. With the involvement of over 20 different processes, it is inevitable that many children and adults are struggling in life due to poorly developed visual skills. Fortunately, vision therapy is the ideal approach for improving these visual skills.

What is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is a highly effective non-surgical treatment for many common visual problems such as lazy eye (amblyopia), crossed eyes (strabismus), double vision, convergence insufficiency, and vision conditions that interfere with learning. Individually prescribed in-office sessions introduce a sequence of therapeutic procedures that develop efficient visual skills and visual processing. Specialized lenses, filters, occluders, instruments and digital programs are utilized to maximize benefits by ensuring all visual skills are fully integrated at an automated level.

Vision Therapy Effectively Treats:

  • Binocularity (Eye Alignment)

    Crossed eyes, lazy/wandering eye (strabismus), and convergence insufficiency

  • Focusing

    Reduced acuity (amblyopia), difficulty refocusing near and far, and maintaining clear focus (accommodation)

  • Eye Movement

    Reduced visual pursuits/tracking skills, peripheral visual field neglect, and involuntary stuttering of the eyes (nystagmus)

  • Visual Sensory & Motor Integration

    Poor eye-hand coordination, difficulty catching/hitting a ball, sloppy handwriting, difficulty crossing the midline, and poor balance and/or klutzy type behaviors

  • Visual Information Processing

    Reduced performance with visual memory, visual discrimination, visual-spatial awareness, figure-ground awareness, visual planning, and visualization abilities

Benefits of Vision Therapy:

  • Help

    Patients develop and improve fundamental visual skills and abilities

  • Increase

    Visual comfort, ease, and efficiency

  • Improve

    How a patient processes or interprets visual information

  • Create

    A strong Eyes + Brain + Body Connection by continually mastering higher levels of integrative multi-sensory activities
