What Is Vision Therapy?

Vision Therapy is a customized treatment program that trains our eyes and brain to work together. It develops and enhances fundamental visual skills and abilities, such as eye tracking, eye teaming, convergence, focusing, and visual processing skills.

It is performed under optometrist supervision and is individualized to fit the specific needs of each unique patient.

Vision therapy consists of in-office appointments and at-home exercises.

Benefits of Vision Therapy

  • Non-Invasive

    Vision therapy doesn’t involve medication, surgery, or invasive procedures. Instead, it corrects eye problems naturally.

  • Great for children and adults

    Your brain is capable of forming new neural pathways throughout your entire life, so vision therapy can be effective at any age.

  • Easy to do

    Instructions are easy to follow. You or your child will learn them during in-office sessions and practice the exercises at home.

  • Customized treatment

    Following the consultation and eye exam, our eye care professionals will custom design a vision therapy program to suit your specific needs.


Should Your Child Have Vision Therapy?

Below is a list of behaviors that may indicate a vision problem:

  • Squints, tilts head or covers one eye to see better. 
  • Reports blurry or double vision
  • Has difficulty in school even if they understand the subject matter
  • Has trouble focusing or paying attention
  • Avoids activities that require visual skills, such as reading, drawing, or puzzles

It is not uncommon for academic or behavioral problems to be caused by vision difficulties. Vision therapy not only helps your child see better, but can also improve learning, behavior and self-confidence. 

Contact EyeCare Specialties Pediatric & Adult in Wexford to find out whether your child's lagging visual skills may be getting in the way of their learning.

They were able to find the issue that my daughter was having quickly when none of her teachers could... identify why she was having issues reading. Through a series of tests, they identified that her eyes were having issues working together which is why she was a slow reader and couldn't copy this down from the board easily. So glad we found out about this place.

Vision Therapy FAQs

How long does it take for vision therapy to work?

Since every patient's condition and program is unique, some may see improvement in just a couple of weeks, while others may notice progress after several months.

Can vision therapy improve my child’s academic performance?

Often, poor performance in school can mask an undiagnosed vision or eye problem. In these cases, vision therapy can transform your child’s academic performance and attitude toward school. Since 80% of learning is visual, any improvement in visual skills is likely to positively impact school performance.

Does vision therapy work?

Yes. Scientific studies confirm the effectiveness of vision therapy in treating convergence insufficiency, amblyopia, and other eye conditions. A study published in the Archives of Ophthalmology and funded by the National Eye Institute (NEI) showed that 75% of patients who attended weekly in-office sessions and performed daily exercises at home noticed marked improvement in convergence symptoms.
