Our team of optometry experts is here to make sure you get the diagnosis and custom treatment you deserve.
The What and Why of Vision Therapy
The main goal of vision therapy is to make sure both eyes track objects equally and correctly, at all distances. Vision therapy is also used to help prevent or delay the need for some types of eye surgery. This may involve special eyewear and/or special in-office eye therapy sessions.
Eye-tracking problems in a child may be misinterpreted as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. If a child’s eyes are not tracking the words on a page correctly, the child cannot participate in many class activities and may become easily bored or distracted. Normal eye vision exams rarely detect eye-tracking problems. An eye doctor with orthoptic training can diagnose and treat childhood eye-tracking problems.
Reasons for Vision Therapy
Many conditions require vision therapy:
- Wandering eye, or lazy eye (amblyopia or exotropia, types of strabismus)
- Crossed eye (esotropia, another type of strabismus)
- Eye-tracking problems
- Double vision (convergence insufficiency)
- Certain types of eye post-surgical recovery
Types of Vision Therapy
Some types of vision therapy may be done with non-standard prescription glasses or contact lenses. The strength of these lenses may need to be changed over time, depending upon how your condition improves.
Our optometry center also uses vision correction devices like:
- Corrective lenses (standard prescriptions)
- Therapeutic lenses, often very different from normal glasses
- Prism lenses
- Optical filters
- Eye patches
- Brock strings
- Vectograms, tranaglyphs, and stereo objects
- Electronic targets with mechanical timing mechanisms
- Visual-motor-sensory integration devices to help eye, hand, and body coordination
