Vision Therapy

What Is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy a treatment program that is designed to strengthen and improve visual skills. It improves brain-eye communication by teaching children how to interpret visual stimuli with increased ease and accuracy.

What Does Vision Therapy Do?

The following conditions may be helped with a customized vision therapy plan:

  • Child holding glassesVisual perception
  • Processing issues
  • Convergence insufficiency
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Amblyopia
  • Depth perception issues
  • 3D vision difficulties
  • Strabismus
  • Double vision
  • Eye-tracking issues
  • Focusing
  • Eye fatigue

Children that undergo vision therapy may see an increase in reading comprehension and improved grades. They may also find they are able to increase attentiveness, and their handwriting often improves.

While vision therapy is generally focused on children, adults can benefit from it as well. There are many symptoms that can be improved with a vision therapy plan. These symptoms include:

  • Dizziness
  • Motion sickness
  • Double vision
  • Headaches
  • Eye fatigue after reading
  • Head tilting or constant squinting
  • Eye turn
  • Tendency to close or cover one eye
  • Poor hand-eye coordination
  • Finger-pointing while reading
  • Difficulty tracking a moving target

Do You or Your Child Need Vision Therapy?

Whether you or your child need vision therapy is a question for your eye doctor. A comprehensive eye exam will allow your optometrist or ophthalmologist to evaluate your eyes and the function of your visual system.

If it is determined that vision therapy would be beneficial, your optometrist or ophthalmologist will create a personalized plan for you or your child. It will likely include the estimated number of sessions and the intended result.

If you suspect that you or your child has vision issues, it is important to be evaluated by a doctor as soon as possible — especially for children. Some vision problems can become permanent if not corrected at the appropriate age.

The Insight from EyeQue offers a convenient way to screen visual acuity in children as often as you would like. Knowing your child’s visual acuity is an important first step in determining if they might need glasses or vision therapy.
