What is Vision Therapy?
Vision therapy (also known as visual training and eye therapy) is a program aimed at remedying and enhancing an individual’s visual abilities. It is suitable for both children and adults and conducted by a Behavioural or Developmental Optometrist such as David. Its function is to:
- Enhance the efficiency and comfort of visual function
- Help prevent some visual problems
- Treat existing visual problems such as
- immature perceptual development
- eye alignment problems
- eye coordination problems
- poorly sustained near focus
- inadequate eye-hand coordination
What are the symptoms of poor vision?
- Blurred / Double Vision
- Poor or erratic performance
- Discomfort and fatigue
How can Vision Therapy help?
David tailors each program to suit the specific needs of each patient, both in terms of their visual profile and their goals.
Diagnostic testing, training procedures and the use of lenses and prisms may be integral components of the successful treatment of a vision problem.
The frequency of consultation, the amount of home training and the duration of a course will vary depending on the nature and severity of the problem being treated and the specific needs of the patient.
Vision Therapy is not used to strengthen eye muscles, but to improve the coordination and efficient functioning and processing of the visual system.
