Vision Therapy

Vision is more than 20/20 eyesight. 

 It’s not enough to see clearly. Sight is a steering mechanism; it can only provide feedback regarding what is happening. Vision is a learned skill, just like walking and talking. It allows a person to change focus quickly, see over a large area, recognize objects or persons with one short look, and much more. 
For many people, reading and hand-eye coordination tasks are very difficult.  Vision Therapy is a treatment used to correct or improve specific dysfunctions of the vision system. It includes, but is not limited to, the treatment of strabismus, accommodation, amblyopia, ocular motor function and visual-perception-motor abilities.
 

We provide Vision Therapy to help individuals learn how to process visual information and develop better hand-eye coordination skills. Please call us for more information or to schedule a consultation or appointment.
 

Eight-year-old Brooke passed the 20/20 eye chart test with flying colors. Yet she saw letters move around on the page, words and letters disappear, and the print go in and out of focus. When asked if she had ever told her parents or teacher that this was happening, Brook replied, “No, I thought books did that to everyone.” Children with learning related vision problems rarely report symptoms. They think everyone sees the same as they do.

 

If you believe your child may be having trouble with vision, please contact us for more information (716-434-8063).
