Vision Therapy Q & A

What is vision therapy?

Vision therapy (visual training) refers to a supervised customized treatment program that’s specifically designed to correct perceptual-cognitive and visual-motor problems. Optometric vision therapy takes place in-office under the supervision of a qualified optometrist.

Some visual conditions can’t be sufficiently treated with just glasses or contact lenses and are best resolved through a personalized effective program of vision therapy.

What does vision therapy involve?

Vision therapy involves a combination of at-home and weekly in-office eye exercises to retrain your visual system using various instruments, such as eye patches, lenses, and prisms. Vision therapy is designed to enhance your brain's ability to control:

 

  • Eye alignment
  • Eye teaming and eye tracking
  • Eye focusing abilities
  • Eye-hand activity
  • Visual memory skills
  • Eye movements
  • Visual processing

 

ReVision Optix uses specialized computer and optical devices, including therapeutic filters, lenses, and prisms to develop your visual motor skills and endurance. Through precise methods like repetition, during the final stages of your therapy, your newly acquired visual skills are reinforced and become automatic.

What can vision therapy treat?

Vision therapy can help with a number of conditions and problems, such as:

 

  • Headaches and eye strain
  • Eye turns (strabismus)
  • Eye focusing (accommodative disorders)
  • Irregular eye movements and poor eye coordination
  • Ocular motor dysfunction
  • Learning-related vision problems
  • Near vision disorders (convergence insufficiency)
  • Amblyopia (lazy eye)
  • Diplopia (double vision) and blurred vision
  • Visual stress from reading and computers
  • Vision-induced stomach-aches or motion sickness
  • Sports vision improvement to enhance hand-eye coordination

Vision therapy can benefit both children and adults. It’s often used for conditions like autism and developmental delays. Vision therapy is a great choice for those looking to improve visual skills for writing, reading, and learning.

Vision therapy can also be helpful for visual rehabilitation for traumatic brain injury, post-concussive syndrome, stroke, birth injury, brain damage, whiplash, and other conditions.

How can vision therapy benefit children?

Around 80% of the information a child learns in school is presented visually. Many children struggle in school and have a visual processing disorder. Visual information processing (VIP) refers to the ability to interpret what you see. If a child has a VIP disorder, they might have:

 

  • Poor reading comprehension
  • Poor knowledge of left vs right
  • Letter or number reversals
  • Difficulty recognizing numbers, letters, and words
  • Difficulty learning the alphabet
  • Trouble taking notes
  • Inability to recall visually presented information
  • Poor test taking

ReVision Optix offers quality eye exams to evaluate eye health and personalize vision therapy.
