Vision therapy (VT) is a sequence of activities aimed at developing efficient visual and processing skills. It treats common visual issues such as “lazy” eye, crossed eyes, double vision, visual related learning issues, and more. It is an individualized program designed to improve your visual function, comfort and performance.
The goal of VT is to retrain the brain and eyes to work together better as a team, enhance the brain’s ability to control eye alignment, eye movement, focusing ability, and eye teaming skills.
Just like physical therapy builds motor function, range of motion and neuromuscular connections, optometric vision therapy does the same but from a visual standpoint. Vision therapy is an invaluable tool that is necessary to treat visual conditions that are not adequately treated by glasses or contact lenses alone.
