What is Vision Therapy?

Our eyes work together as a team to allow clear and comfortable vision. However, when specific visual skills that involve the focusing system or eye teaming skills are weak it can cause a variety of symptoms. Vision therapy is a personalized program that focuses on strengthening these visual skills and can help improve visual efficiency to achieve better comfort and vision. It can be beneficial for individuals with vision problems that cannot be corrected with eyeglasses.

WHo may benefit from VISION THERAPY?

Vision therapy is effective in treating many vision-related problems. According to Vision Therapy Canada, vision therapy can help:

These vision-related conditions can affect adults or children. It can cause the following symptoms: blurry vision, double vision, ocular discomfort, eyestrain, headaches, or eye fatigue.  Deficiencies in particular visual skills can also affect a child’s school performance. Some signs to be aware of in a child who may be experiencing vision-related problem include: 

  • Skipping words or lines while reading
  • Closing one eye when reading or doing near work
  • Holding books very close to the face
  • Tilting of the head when reading
  • Discomfort or headaches from schoolwork or computer use
  • Avoiding homework or other activities that require focus

If you notice a child is exhibiting signs of discomfort or is struggling with their vision, it’s always best to bring them in for an eye exam. A thorough binocular vision evaluation can help determine if vision therapy may be beneficial. The vision therapy program can help improve visual efficiency and may improve reading comprehension and attention.

WHAT WILL A VISION THERAPY PROGRAM INCLUDE?

A vision therapy program is a personalized program of exercises and activities focused on improving particular visual skills. The exercises will involve the use of lenses, prisms, filters, and/or other specialized equipment. Active participation and dedication from the patient is important for a vision therapy program to be successful.

If you would like to explore vision therapy as a treatment for your child, we would love to help. Please book an appointment or give us a call for more information!
