What is Vision Therapy?

Optometric Vision Therapy is a treatment plan used to correct or improve specific dysfunctions of the vision system. It includes, but is not limited to: eye movement and eye teaming problems; focussing problems; peripheral awareness problems; depth perception and eye-hand coordination problems; and the treatment eye turns and lazy eyes.

What Does Vision Therapy Treat?

Digital eye strain is generally caused after looking at a screen for an extended period of time. When you’re focused, your eyes tend to blink less, and this can lead to dryness or irritation since the surface of your eyes aren’t getting the proper amount of lubrication it needs to feel comfortable.

Vision therapy can help give you the tools to maintain comfortability in your eyesight while you work on digital devices for these extended periods.

The quality of your vision can have a direct impact on how you or a loved one performs at school or at work. Through vision therapy techniques, the exercises we provide can provide the chance to help diagnose and even treat your vision problem so you can get back to performing your best at any task given to you.

Strabismus (crossed eyes) and amblyopia (lazy eye) are eye conditions that can affect the quality of your vision as well as your eyes alignment with each other. Both can occur in childhood and can be treated if caught early enough, and we provide a comprehensive series of tests designed to realign your eyes and improve your vision quality.

Brain injuries and concussions can lead to a variety of vision problems, affecting the skills and structures needed to read and even stay balanced. If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury or concussion, please book a vision therapy appointment with our optometrist to help you recover any visual abilities you might have lost.

If you are interested in playing sports or are looking to up your game just a little bit, vision therapy may be able to help you reach your athletic potential. With exercises designed to improve hand-eye coordination and visual awareness, we can help you reach the top of your game.

Myopia is one of the most common vision problems affecting patients of all ages. Fortunately, there are a variety of ways to correct and treat this problem, including vision therapy. Our optometrist will help walk you through a variety of exercises that can help mitigate your myopia symptoms.
