What is vision therapy?

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.

Who can benefit from vision therapy?

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.

What is the first step before beginning a vision therapy program?

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.

Does my child need vision therapy?

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.

How does vision therapy work?

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.

Can’t my child just do the therapy at home?

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.

What is the minimum age in which vision therapy can be started?

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.

How many vision therapy sessions are required to treat visual conditions?

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.

Do these exercises simply strengthen eye muscles?

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.

How long do the benefits of vision therapy last?

When the program is complete, the benefits of vision therapy will last a lifetime.

Does vision therapy treat the eye problem or the brain problem?

The visual system includes the brain and the eyes— the eyes are actually physical extensions of the brain!

Why is 3D vision important?

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.

Can my child outgrow his vision problem?

Unfortunately, no.
Children do not grow out of their vision problems - they will just continue to struggle as adults.

Is vision therapy new?

No, vision therapy has been around for centuries.

Is there scientific evidence that vision therapy really works?

Yes! Vision therapy has been proven effective for improving many vision conditions.
