Vision Therapy FAQs

When people suffer from vision problems, they assume they will either need to wear corrective lenses for the rest of their lives or have surgery. Fortunately, this is not always the case since vision therapy can help with many issues. Let’s take a look at some of the questions that our team at Saline Optometry runs into regarding vision therapy.

What is vision therapy?

Vision therapy is like a workout for the visual system. It includes exercises that help develop or improve your vision skills while building the relationship between your eyes and brain.

How does vision therapy help?

Every patient’s treatment plan is determined by their needs. Therefore, the particular skills that are worked on will depend on the patient, but some of the common ones include the following:

  • Eye-tracking
  • Depth perception
  • Visual processing and memory
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Focusing
  • Visual acuity

What conditions can vision therapy treat?

Vision therapy has been shown to help binocular issues, such as amblyopia or lazy eye. It also helps with conditions like strabismus or crossed eyes and nystagmus or dancing eyes. Many people with traumatic brain injuries and developmental delays have made great improvements through vision therapy.

Can children benefit from vision therapy?

Many children labeled with learning disabilities or those with academic trouble and sports performance issues often have vision problems. If you notice any of the following in your child, be sure to have him or her examined by an eye doctor:

  • Reading below grade level or skipping words when reading
  • Poor handwriting and comprehension
  • Trouble paying attention for long periods
  • Labeled as lazy, ADHD, dyslexic, or learning delayed

If poor vision is the culprit behind these issues, vision therapy can often be of great benefit.

How do I know if vision therapy is right for me?

The only way to know for sure is to have a comprehensive eye exam performed, so our eye doctors can diagnose any difficulties. If vision therapy is the best course of treatment, the eye doctor will help you get started.
