Vision Therapy is a doctor supervised program designed to improve the function of the visual system.  Vision Therapy allows patients the opportunity for new visual experiences through the use of lenses, prisms, filters, 3-D activities and other methods. Vision Therapy is individualized to the unique needs of the patient.
Vision therapy is not simply eye exercises. It is a scientifically-based program that when combined with careful history, visual examination and dedicated participation can have dramatic results.

Eye focusing (accommodation) and eye teaming (vergence) problems may occur even when individuals have 20/20 eyesight, and can impact students when reading and studying. The typical student with an eye focusing or eye teaming disorder will often experience fatigue, loss of place when reading, and difficulty completing assignments.

Other common symptoms include skipping small words, rereading sentences, inserting words that do not exist in the text and experiencing decreasing comprehension the longer that he or she reads.

Vision Therapy works to allow better visual comfort, visual efficiency and grace of movement. It can alter the way a person interprets what they see including improving depth perception. It can help the struggling reader, the athlete, or someone who has suffered a brain injury. Those with Dyslexia or Attention Deficit Disorder are often found to have significant visual problems affecting their learning. If so, vision therapy can help these individuals improve their reading and overall classroom performance.
