What Is Vision Therapy?

Did you know 20/20 vision is only a piece of the puzzle? We need over 17 crucial visual skills for effective performance in school and sports.

Children with weaker vision skills might put in extra effort but fall short of desired outcomes. If they’re struggling with concentration, this could be due to these poor visual skills.

Vision therapy is a proven program comprising exercises that hone specific vision skills to lift reading levels, boost comprehension, extend attention spans, and even enhance sports performance.

If your child struggles with reading, learning, or reaching their potential academically or athletically, request an appointment for a functional eye exam with our developmental optometrists. We'll assess over 17 visual skills, including tracking, reading fluency, focusing, and depth perception.

The program may also involve the use of prism lenses. This approach blends tailored exercises and lenses to refine visual skills, retraining the brain-eye connection. If double vision, imbalance, or depth perception issues persist, our doctors offer prism-based vision therapy, fine-tuning treatment through hands-on sessions and valuable feedback.

Vision therapy might hold the key you've been looking for. We're here to help your child tap into their visual potential and tackle any underlying visual challenges head-on.
