Make the Most of Your Vision

Most people don’t think of healthy vision as a skill; they just assume you either have it or you don’t. However, visual acuity (your eye’s ability to distinguish objects at various distances) is only one part of healthy vision—and even those with 20/20 eyesight can have trouble with their vision.

Visual skills affect things like your reading ability and eye-hand coordination. Strong visual skills can even make everyday eye movements more comfortable. Vision therapy teaches you how to develop these skills with non-invasive exercises and treatments so that you can improve the way you use your eyes.

What Can Vision Therapy Do?

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:

Vision Therapy After Concussion

Did you know that a concussion can significantly impact your vision? Concussions can cause Post-Trauma Vision Syndrome, which can be treated with vision therapy.

The symptoms of PTVS include:

  • Electronic targets controlled by timers
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Double vision
  • Light sensitivity
  • Motion sensitivity
  • Balance and depth perception issues

 

Once we’ve finished our assessment, we’ll tailor a vision therapy treatment plan for you to help alleviate your symptoms and get you seeing clearly again!

Is Vision Therapy Right For Me?

Everyone can benefit from improving their visual skills. However, vision therapy has caused specific and noteworthy improvements in patients with:

  • Vision problems caused by concussions
  • Learning disabilities (particularly children)
  • Convergence insufficiency, accommodative insufficiency, strabismus, or amblyopia due to other causes
  • A desire to improve reading, visual processing, and object tracking abilities

You or your child might see significant improvements from vision therapy if either of you struggles with the following problems:

  • Often losing place or skipping small words when reading
  • Text appearing to move on the page or drift in and out of focus when reading
  • Becoming frustrated when reading or tending to avoid reading entirely
  • Suffering from frequent eye fatigue and frontal headaches

What Happens During Vision Therapy?

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

Contact our practice now to speak with an experienced eye care professional who can tell you more about this process and help you get started.
