What is vision therapy?
Vision therapy is an individualized, supervised, rehabilitative treatment program designed to correct binocular vision dysfunction, oculomotor and visual skill disorders, amblyopia (lazy eye), and visual perceptual processing deficiencies. It is based on the science of neuro-plasticity. Vision therapy sessions include procedures designed to enhance the brain's ability to control:

Visual skills and endurance are developed through the use of specialized vision therapy-related equipment and strategies, optical devices, therapeutic lenses, prisms, filters, and visual processing training. During vision therapy, the patient's improving visual skills are reinforced and made automatic through repetition and by integration with motor and cognitive tasks.


Who benefits from vision therapy?
Children and adults with visual challenges, such as:


What is amblyopia (lazy eye)?
Amblyopia, also known as lazy eye, is a condition where vision is reduced because the brain isn't processing the visual information coming into the eye and the eyes often aren't working together properly. The eye itself looks normal, but it's not being used effectively because the brain is favoring the other eye.


What is strabismus?
Strabismus is caused by a lack of coordination between the eyes, causing the eyes to look in different directions and not focus at the same time on a single point. Strabismus related to focusing problems or fragile binocular vision responds well to vision therapy.
