Vision Therapy


Vision Therapy is a type of Physical Therapy.  Like other forms of physical therapy, with vision therapy, optimum results require much more than visual acuity or binocular eye muscle control.  Vision therapy integrates visual acuity and binocular function plus detailed brain function activities that collectively control thousands of components of our entire body's coordinated actions.  Your visual system is your steering system.  Vision Therapy helps to enhance the ability of the visual system to more precisely orchestrate the entire body's activities.

What is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is a sequence of therapy procedures that are individually prescribed and monitored by the doctor to develop efficient visual skills and visual processing. Vision therapy is prescribed following a comprehensive evaluation of the visual system. If vision therapy is indicated for your child, we have several specialists we refer to.

 

 

VT Vision Therapy Testing

 

 

 

 

Binocular & Visualization Tests

The vision therapy program is based on the results of standardized tests, the patient’s specific signs and symptoms plus a careful look at the needs of the patient.

 

 

 

VT Examination

 

 

 

The use of lenses, prisms, filters, occluders, specialized instruments and computer programs is an integral part of vision therapy. Typically, vision therapy is administered as a combination of in-office visits combined with prescribed, daily, home-vision therapy procedures.

 

 

 

Visual Therapy Test Examination

 

 

The in-office therapy is designed to make the patient aware of his or her visual deficiencies under controlled conditions. Then by a feedback process the patient is taught strategies to improve visual performance.

 

 

Visual Therapy Reading

 

 

 


Home therapy is directed at practicing the newly learned visual skills until the initial conscious effort becomes automatic.
