Assessment and treatment of following conditions with modern equipments and latest computer softwares:
- Vision training for eyecontact, steady fixation & eye movements, eye-hand coordination, eye-foot coordination and other problems in cerebral palsy, delayed visual maturation and stimulation for cortical visual impairment.
- Squint (crossed eyes / eye turns)
- Non strabismic binocular vision disorders (un-coordinated eye movements)
- Amblyopia (lazy eyes)
- Nystagmus (shaky eyes)
- Diplopia (double vision)
- Poor saccades & pursuits (eye movements)
- Accommodative dysfunction (eye focusing problems)
- Eyestrain & headache
- Learning related vision problems (dyslexia)
- Poor visual attention and other problems related to attention deficit disorders, autism and other behavioural disoders.
- Visual perceptual (processing) disorders-difficulty remembering, organising, discriminating and visualising what is seen.

Vision therapy can be described as physical therapy for the visual system— the brain and eyes.
Vision Therapy is designed as an individual and personalized treatment program, often used in conjunction with other treatments such as eyeglasses or eye surgery.
People of all ages can benefit from vision therapy!
Vision therapy can treat a variety of vision conditions such as lazy eye, squint, visual processing problems etc.
A comprehensive vision exam with an optometrist experienced in vision therapy, is the first step before beginning a vision therapy program.
Your Optometrist will determine if you can benefit from vision therapy, and how many sessions you will need to see results. Your optometrist will then design an individualized program, specific to your needs.
Many children struggle with reading, learning, and sports performance as a result of vision problems. A function vision evaluation will exactly tell if vision therapy is required or not.
Vision therapy is performed under the supervision of an optometrist and vision therapist.
A program of eye exercises will be designed to meet the individual needs of each patient. These exercises, which include interactive games and activities are performed in sessions lasting 30-45 minutes. In addition, homework is given to reinforce what is learned during in-office therapy sessions. Commitment to weekly sessions and therapy homework assignments are essential for optimal results.
No. Vision therapy exercises are performed under the guidance of a trained professional, and monitoring is necessary for success.
In addition, vision therapists use specialized computer programs, regulated medical devices (such as lenses and prisms) and other tools which are not available for home practice.
Our multispecialty approach provides patients the opportunity to begin a modified Vision Therapy program that focuses on the foundational skills needed for visual function as early as 3 months of age.
Patients will receive an estimated number of visits at their initial evaluation. The number of sessions depends on the number of sensory systems compromised and their level of function. The final number can vary based on patient participation and how the brain responds to therapy.
Nothing about vision therapy is centered on strengthening eye muscles. These muscles can be strengthened through orthoptics if they need strengthening. This therapy is all about improving vision problems that may interfere with learning by strengthening the neurological pathways between the eyes and the brain.
When the program is complete, the benefits of vision therapy will last a lifetime.
The visual system includes the brain and the eyes— the eyes are actually physical extensions of the brain!
Many routine tasks and activities rely on 3D vision for accuracy and success.
Some of these activities include:
- Throwing, catching, or hitting a ball
- Driving and parking a car etc.
Children do not grow out of their vision problems - they will just continue to struggle as adults.
No, vision therapy has been around for centuries.
Yes! Vision therapy has been proven effective for improving many vision conditions.
