Optometric Vision Therapy is a safe, effective way to improve the visual system’s function for both children and adults! Our program is designed based on the individual’s diagnosis, symptoms and goals for treatment. Working with your doctor and vision therapist, a treatment plan is designed to develop and enhance fundamental vision skills. These skills are required for day to day functions like reading, writing and driving a car.
Even if you have 20/20 vision, therapy can help improve:
- Binocular Vision (eye-teaming)
- Eye Focusing
- Visual Perceptual Skills
- Peripheral Vision
Our Optometric Vision Therapy program, under the direction of Dr. Wilson create an individualized treatment plan utilizing lenses, prisms, and activities to improve the brain’s processing of visual information.
Why Is Optometric Vision Therapy Important?
Optometric Vision Therapy utilizes neuroplasticity, which is the brain’s ability to form and reorganize connections to improve visual skills that may have not developed or that have been damaged after traumatic brain injury. Conditions like double vision, eye focusing disorders, amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (eye turn), and problems with eye tracking and eye teaming.
In addition, Optometric Vision Therapy can be very effective in helping to treat:
- Post-Concussion Syndrome
- Acquired Brain Injuries
- and much more!
Concussions can occur anywhere and anytime, and vision therapy can help when visual symptoms persist or help resolve dizziness and poor balance.
