Vision Therapy

What is Vision Therapy?

  • A progressive program of vision “exercises” or procedures
  • Performed under doctor supervision
  • Individualized to fit the visual needs of each individual
  • Conducted in-office, in once or twice weekly sessions of 30 minutes to an hour
  • Supplemented with procedures done at home between office visits (“home reinforcement activities”);
  • Procedures are prescribed to:
    • Develop or improve fundamental visual skills and abilities
    • Improve visual comfort, ease, and efficiency
    • Change how a patient processes or interprets visual information.

Vision Therapy is Not Just Eye Exercises

Vision Therapy is supervised by an optometrist and many types of specialized and/or medical equipment can be used in Optometric Vision Therapy programs, such as:

  • corrective lenses
  • therapeutic lenses
  • prism lenses
  • optical filters
  • occluders or eye patches
  • visual-motor-sensory integration training devices

The first step to a Vision Therapy program is a comprehensive vision examination. Following an examination, the doctor will advise whether a Vision Therapy evaluation would be appropriate.
