A Comprehensive Approach to Visual Wellness

​​Vision therapy, commonly abbreviated as VT, is a highly personalized program that focuses on enhancing and solidifying visual skills. Drawing parallels with physical therapy, vision therapy works on the eyes, brain, and the body as a cohesive unit, aiming to bolster the overall visual system.

The crux of vision therapy lies in its carefully curated exercises that are designed to augment the brain’s ability to regulate a host of visual functionalities. These include eye alignment, tracking, and teaming; focusing abilities; eye movements; and visual processing. The ultimate objective of these exercises is to foster an improved visual experience both in terms of clarity and comfort.

A wide array of individuals stand to gain from vision therapy, including:

  • Children Facing Learning Difficulties: Vision problems can often be the root cause of academic struggles in children. Difficulty in reading, for instance, might stem from issues in eye tracking or focusing. Vision therapy can effectively address these challenges, paving the way for improved academic performance and a better learning experience.
  • Individuals with Strabismus or Amblyopia: Strabismus (misaligned eyes) and amblyopia (reduced vision in one eye), can significantly hinder visual functionality. Vision therapy can play a pivotal role in managing these conditions, aiding in the enhancement of visual function and the improvement of overall visual experience.
  • People Recovering from Traumatic Brain Injuries: Traumatic events like a stroke or concussion often lead to vision disturbances. Vision therapy could serve as an essential component of the rehabilitation process, assisting in the restoration of visual functions and promoting faster recovery.
  • Sports Professionals: Athletes demand top-notch visual skills for optimal performance. Vision therapy can help fine-tune these skills, leading to improved hand-eye coordination, better depth perception, and ultimately, enhanced performance on the field.
  • Professionals Engaged in Computer-based Work: Extended periods spent in front of computer screens can lead to Computer Vision Syndrome, characterized by eyestrain, headaches, and blurred vision. Vision therapy can offer relief from these symptoms, making long hours of screen time more comfortable.
  • Individuals with Binocular Vision Dysfunction: This condition, involving difficulties in maintaining normal alignment of the two eyes, can lead to impaired depth perception and discomforting symptoms like headaches and dizziness. Vision therapy can help train the eyes to align properly, improving depth perception and reducing associated discomfort.

Vision Therapy Techniques

Refining Vision with Lenses and Prisms

An important aspect of our vision therapy includes exercises that incorporate a variety of lenses and prisms in different orientations. The goal of these exercises is to train your eyes to perceive objects and events accurately, irrespective of their distance or proximity. This technique is designed to hone your visual acuity and depth perception, ultimately resulting in clearer and more precise vision.

Innovative Computer-Assisted Activities

At the core of our vision therapy program are innovative computer-assisted activities, meticulously crafted to enhance various facets of your visual abilities. These state-of-the-art exercises focus on improving your eye alignment (vergence), focusing capability (accommodation), control over eye movements, and the processing of visual data. Our objective is to fortify these essential skills, thereby maximizing your visual performance and enriching your overall visual experience.

Effective Patching Therapy for Amblyopia

To treat amblyopia, often referred to as ‘lazy eye’, we employ the well-established method of patching therapy. This technique involves reducing the signals from the dominant eye to stimulate the weaker one. This strategy enables the weaker eye to become more active and strengthen, fostering balanced vision use between both eyes and leading to an overall enhancement in vision.

Alleviating Digital Eye Strain with Vision Rest Exercises

For individuals who spend significant time on digital devices, we provide vision rest exercises. Adhering to the 20/20/20 rule, these exercises recommend a 20-second break every 20 minutes of screen time to look at an object 20 feet away. This simple yet effective technique aids in mitigating eye strain and fatigue, potentially alleviating associated symptoms like headaches and focusing difficulties.
