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 for people of all ages. In the past, it was believed that certain developmental vision issues, such as amblyopia (lazy eye), could not be treated in adulthood. However, recent research in ophthalmology and neuroscience has shown that neuroplasticity can improve visual function in teenagers and adults.

Patients who can benefit from vision therapy treatment generally have:

  • Learning-Related Vision Problems: Eye-related conditions like eye-tracking, focusing, teaming, and perceptual delays can make learning difficult. Those who have these conditions often can’t handle the demands of work or a classroom for a long time. As a result, they may start avoiding these situations.
  • Individualized Program Plan (IPP): A study by the University of Waterloo found that 67% of Canadian children with an IPP had trouble with their vision, which made it difficult for them to focus on their work. For children with learning disabilities or developmental delays such as Dyslexia or Autistic Spectrum Disorder, it is important to have a developmental optometrist assess their visual skills, visual-motor abilities, and visual perceptual abilities. This is because 80% of learning is visual.
  • Crossed Eye (Strabismus) or Lazy Eye (Amblyopia): Some conditions can cause poor eyesight, double vision, and reduced depth perception. Instead of eye surgery, vision therapy can be a helpful alternative in some cases. It is also necessary for patients post-surgery to recover functional vision and depth perception.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries: If you’ve had a concussion, stroke, or been in a car accident, you may experience problems with your balance, dizziness, eyestrain, difficulty reading, double vision, or visual memory. Neuro-visual rehabilitation can help improve your overall performance, comfort, and quality of life for the long term.
  • Interest in Improving Athletic Abilities: Athletes use sports vision therapy to improve their visual skills, such as reaction time, processing speed, eye-hand coordination, and peripheral vision. This helps them achieve better performance.
