Vision Therapy Treatment Clinic

Vision Therapy treatment is an individualized neuro-optometric program designed to improve and treat visual function. The goal of vision therapy treatment is to improve visual skills to eliminate symptoms of visual stress and provide the skills necessary to learn and read at the patient’s full potential.

More about Vision Therapy.

Vision therapy treatment is beneficial to all ages. It was once thought that specific developmental vision problems such as amblyopia (lazy eye) could not be treated after childhood. However, recent ophthalmology and neuroscience research has shown that teenagers and adults can improve in visual function because of neuroplasticity.

Patients who can benefit from vision therapy generally have:

  • Learning-Related Vision Problems: Conditions such as eye-tracking, eye-focusing, eye-teaming, and visual perceptual delays can interfere with learning. These individuals cannot tolerate the demands within the classroom/work for very long, so avoidance behavior is typical.
  • Individualized Program Plan (IPP):  Research from the University of Waterloo showed that 67% of Canadian children in an IPP had a vision problem that hindered their ability to stay focused on their work. Because 80% of learning is visual, children who have learning disabilities or have developmental delays (i.e., Dyslexia, Autistic Spectrum Disorder) must receive visual skills or visual-motor and or visual perceptual assessment by a developmental optometrist.
  • Crossed Eye (Strabismus) or Lazy Eye (Amblyopia): These conditions result in poor eye-sight, double vision, and or reduce depth perception. In some instances, vision therapy is an effective alternative to eye surgery. Vision therapy is also essential in helping post-surgical patients develop functional vision and depth perception.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries:  Patients who have had concussions, strokes, or been in motor vehicle accidents often experience balance problems, dizziness, eyestrain, reduced ability to read efficiently, double vision, and or visual memory problems. Neuro-visual rehabilitation can provide a lifelong change in overall performance, comfort, and quality of life.
  • Interest in Improving Athletic Abilities:      Athletes engage in sports vision therapy to enhance their visual reaction time, processing speed, eye-hand coordination, peripheral vision, and other visual skills required for peak performance.
