ABOUT VISION THERAPY 

WHAT IS
VISION THERAPY?

Your vision is a complicated interaction between your eyes, your brain, your body, and your mind.  Vision therapy is a process that helps maximize the interaction between all those components. There are three basic kinds of vision therapy:

  • Binocular Vision Therapy for eye alignment and movement problems (i.e. lazy eye, poor eye-teaming),

  • Visuo-Cognitive Therapy for vision-based, developmental learning problems, and

  • Neuro-Optometric Vision Rehabilitation for traumatic or acquired brain injuries.

BVT

Binocular VT

The main purpose of BVT is to get both eyes to work well together. Therapy may involve a combination of therapeutic lenses, in-office activities, and at-home exercises. This type of therapy is also known as behavioral optometry which was created over 100 years ago. Unlike other offices, our treatment program tailored for your unique goals, and therapy is done one-on-one to maximize results.

VCT

Visuo-Cognitive VT

The main purpose of VCT is to integrate your vision fully into all aspects of your life. While it is based on BVT, VCT is far more comprehensive and covers the domains of vision, body, and mind. Problems with clumsiness or poor reading comprehension can also be vision-related problems even if you have 20/20 vision.

This therapy was pioneed by the late Harry Wachs ( Author of Thinking Goes to School and Visual/Spatial Portals to Thinking, Feeling, and Movement ) who believed therapy should following developmental sequence. Thus we focus on remediating the underlying causes to vision-related problems. Since every person is unique, our individualized treatment program is done one-on-one to maximize results.

Neuro-Optometric

Neuro-optometric rehabilitation is an individualized treatment regimen for patients with visual deficits as a direct result of physical disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, and other neurological insults. Neuro-optometric therapy is a process for the rehabilitation of visual / perceptual / motor disorders. It includes, but is not limited to, acquired strabismus, diplopia, binocular dysfunction, convergence and/or accommodation paresis/paralysis, oculomotor dysfunction, visual-spatial dysfunction, visual perceptual and cognitive deficits, and traumatic visual acuity loss.

WHAT IS THERAPY LIKE?

 

If therapy is recommended, your doctor will create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. You will have one-on-one sessions with one of our certified vision therapists. After a number of sessions determined by your doctor, she will evaluate your progress, determine which goals you have met, and modify your treatment plan as needed.
