Vision therapy

Vision therapy is a science-based practice designed to strengthen key visual skills, including object tracking and interpreting visual data. It is often useful for patients with:

  • Post-concussion symptoms: directly related to post-trauma vision syndrome.
  • Learning disabilities: especially affecting children.
  • Amblyopia or strabismus: conditions that cause both eyes to look in different directions.
  • Accommodative insufficiency: a condition that makes it difficult for the eyes to maintain or change focus during near vision tasks.
  • Convergence insufficiency: a condition that prevents the eyes from coordinating with each other during near vision tasks.

A regular vision therapy appointment typically takes between 30 minutes to 1 hour. The first few sessions will be in our office, but many of the exercises we may teach you can also be done at home or in front of a computer.

All in-office sessions take place under the supervision of a qualified eye doctor. We may also use the following tools to measure your progress or help you improve your visual skills:

  • Electronic targets controlled by timers
  • Balance boards
  • Therapeutic lenses
  • Visual occluders or eye patches
  • Filters and prisms
