What is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is a program designed to help correct vision problems and improve your visual skills. The overall goal of vision therapy is to assess and address problems you might be experiencing with your eyes that can’t be solved with non-surgical treatments such as eyeglasses or contacts.

Vision therapy is an excellent technique designed to help you get the most out of your vision.

What To Expect

Vision therapy can include a multitude of different techniques designed to improve your vision. Vision therapy uses different optometrist-led exercises to help correct vision problems, such as:

  • Amblyopia, also known as “lazy eye”
  • Strabismus, also known as “cross-eyes”. Vision therapy has been shown to help with an intermittent form of this condition called convergence insufficiency, which is the inability to keep the eyes aligned when performing close up tasks such as reading but are aligned when looking at more distant objects
  • Other eye movement disorders
  • Focusing disorders
  • Myopia

Vision Therapy for Children

The very first step before pursuing vision therapy for your child is to request a comprehensive eye exam. An eye exam will determine the issues your child might be facing, such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism or other vision or eye health issues.

If your child checks out with strong visual acuity, but a visual problem may still exist, then you may want to consider a vision therapy program for your child. Speak to your optometrist about what vision therapy might be able to do for your child.
