If you want to have healthy, strong muscles, you need to be active. Exercise ensures that your body doesn’t slowly deteriorate from inactivity. When you need to recover from an injury, physical therapy is one of the most efficient and healthy ways to get your muscles back into tip-top shape. Similarly, if your eyes aren’t performing properly, you may be experiencing symptoms that vision therapy can help correct! Below, learn a little more about how it could help you or a loved one.
What is vision therapy?
Vision therapy is an effective solution for complications that need more support than glasses or contacts alone. Together with an optometrist, patients go through a series of treatment strategies designed to correct vision disorders, improving function and performance. Vision therapy can also prevent further visual stress to your eyesight.
Who can it help?
Vision Therapy is an incredible relief for folks experiencing these challenges and more:
- Eye Teaming (i.e., convergence insufficiency) – can cause blurred vision and double vision because the patient can’t process information that’s very close to their eyes.
- Amblyopia, or lazy eye – typically cannot see properly with one eye, even with the help of glasses or contacts.
- Focusing issues – difficulty keeping a clear focus on things close by, or difficulty switching from near to far and back again.
- Tracking – affects a patient’s ability to make concise eye movements, either from one place to another or to follow something as it moves.
- Visual processing disorders – manifest in poor spatial awareness, trouble understanding symbols, and can impact learning.
- Concussions – temporary loss of normal brain function caused by an impact to the head (often with no external signs of trauma).
