What Is Vision Therapy

_____ Eyes are the windows to the brain

Vision therapy strengthens more than the eyes and in some situations can correct vision problems to avoid surgery. Vision therapy enhances the neurological connections between the eyes and the brain. A healthy connection between the eyes and the brain is essential for good eyesight.

We receive lots of questions about vision therapy and how it works. Here are answers to frequently asked questions about the nature of vision therapy.

Vision therapy is a form of physical therapy used on the eyes and brain. It is designed to resolve vision problems that can contribute to learning disabilities and is used as an effective treatment for problems like lazy eye, crossed eyes, or double vision. Vision therapy can be a useful tool for helping children and adults alike. Eyeglasses are not the solution when the problem is visual processing. Children with learning or reading problems can benefit from the confidence boost the exercises provide. Adults also see vision improvement through vision therapy as well. It can help curb eyestrain related vision processing problems brought on by working with computers all day.
