What is Vision Therapy and How Does it Work?

Vision therapy is a customized, non-invasive treatment program to improve visual and processing skills. Unlike traditional eyeglasses or contact lenses that aim to transform blurry vision, vision therapy focuses on training the brain and eyes to work together more effectively.

Vision therapy benefits children and adults who experience difficulties with reading, learning, and other everyday activities due to visual problems.

Neuroplasticity: Rewiring the Brain for Improved Vision

Central to vision therapy is neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to reorganize and form new neural connections throughout life. Vision therapy leverages neuroplasticity to reshape how the brain interprets visual information through carefully structured exercises, visual activities, and therapeutic techniques.

By encouraging the brain to adapt and develop new pathways, vision therapy can address various visual challenges, improving focus, eye teaming, tracking, and visual processing skills.

Amblyopia & Strabismus

Vision therapy is particularly effective in treating amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (crossed eyes). Retraining the brain to recognize images from the weaker eye and promoting proper eye alignment can significantly improve visual acuity and depth perception.

Earlier intervention equals a high chance of success. Children with eye misalignment need vision therapy as soon as possible.

Binocular Vision Disorders

Binocular vision disorders, where the eyes struggle to work together, can cause discomfort, double vision, and difficulties in activities such as reading and sports. Vision therapy focuses on improving eye teaming, convergence (the ability to focus both eyes on a near object), and divergence (the ability to focus both eyes on a distant object).
