If your child is reading below grade level, has difficulties maintaining attention, or is not performing to their potential at school, he or she may have an undetected vision problem.

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.

It was immediate love at first sight! Not only did the elevator open to an enormous gorgeous space, ... but I was greeted by a knowledgeable, welcoming team of Opticians at Eyecare. I arrived a little late after a difficult and stressful day, but they embraced me with open arms, and we got to work. This was my first visit so I had to complete some New Patient paperwork, however they helped me with completion so not to delay my time there. My evaluation with Nicole and Dr. Shuster was brief but quite thorough.  It’s always a little nerve wracking when you’re meeting a new medical team, but They made me feel comfortable, listened and answered questions I had about my prescription and plan. Then came the fun part and my primary reason for scheduling with them! I was skeptical that they would not meet my expectations in terms of frame options, as I have been disappointed and looking for fun funky frames for over a year. Believe me when I say, I was pleasantly surprised! Suzanne who I had spoken with before my appt to confirm, listened to my preferences and had already set aside some frames for me to try. Then, despite me being there at the end of the night, Bailey and Cherie spent considerable time while I tried on as many frames as I could.  Now, I’ll admit I am a tough critic and quite particular looking for specific shapes and dramatic colors.  When you’ve worn glasses long enough, you know what you want.  Well I may not have found what I thought I was looking for, but they opened my eyes to other options, and now I have to make a difficult decision on one or another, or maybe both! They offer a variety of high-end brands, but are reasonably priced, and they have some amazing bargains to take advantage of.  Plus, they are open later, which is hard to find, and I am so thankful for, with my work schedule.  They informed me that get new inventory pretty frequently which was music to my ears! Either way, I will be buying and will without a doubt be returning to work with this amazing team and selection of frames!  I encourage all of you who have imperfect vision to go explore.  I was referred by a very satisfied friend, and now I want to do the referring!  If it’s your first time, they will guide you!   I promise you will not regret it!

I am starting my second year with Dr. Shuster. I was sent to her from an eye doctor who had concern... s about my eyes. Dr. Shuster is knowledgeable and treats me with compassion. I am very grateful to have been sent to Pediatric & Adult Vision Care.

So professional. Every communication & interaction is friendly & clear. Everyone from the check-in c... rew to the evaluator, doctor & check out crew is capable and well-informed.

Everyone is always very friendly and kind. Dr. McChesney is great, very knowledgable, patient, frien... dly and imformative. From the moment you call to schedule the appointment, to the check-in, the exam, and the help with getting glasses, everything is a breeze. Drive an hour just to come to this office, and it is worth it!

Bailey in the eyeglass area is amazing. What a great employee and very sweet, positive and uplifting... for the customers. It was such a great experience!!! 💗
- Nov. 09, 2023
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.

Been very impressed with this team from all angles!! Exams, contacts, and glasses!

This place has a insane amount of knowledge behind its staff. Could not recommend it enough! I went... in due to a concussion and I feel better treated than I had most other places throughout my recovery.

Very professional office with state of the art equipment.

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.
