What is Vision Therapy?
Vision therapy, also known as vision training, or visual therapy, is a group of personalized techniques directed at correcting and bettering visual-motor and perceptual disorders. Vision Therapy incorporates a large variety of non-surgical methods designed to increase the brain’s capacity to control:
- Eye alignment
- Eye focusing abilities
- Eye movements and/or visual processing
- Eye teaming
- Lazy Eye
- Visual Sensory and Motor Integration
- Visual Rehabilitation after Acquired Brain Injury (ie. Trauma or Stroke)
Through the use of highly specialized equipment, such as lenses, prisms, filters, occluders, and other aids, including computers, vision therapy guides the patient through the process of developing improved visual function in all of the above areas. As a patient progresses through vision therapy, they will find that their newly acquired visual skills are continually reinforced and become automatically integrated permanently into all of their motor and cognitive processing.
