Vision therapy can essentially be thought of as physiotherapy for the eyes and parts of the brain which control vision. Like physiotherapy, vision therapy employs a variety of exercises aimed at rehabbing the muscular functionality of the eye.
Vision therapy is becoming an increasingly popular vision correction option as it is non-surgical in nature. However, vision therapy is not meant to replace the consideration or need for eyewear, contacts or surgery when required.
In most cases, vision therapy patients are children. Young minds are the most adaptable, and because of this, children tend to respond best to vision therapy.
However, that is not to say that adults don’t also see benefit from vision therapy. Many adults have found significant improvement in their vision, hand-eye coordination, or eye alignment through vision therapy.
Who will benefit from vision therapy really comes down to the individual and their needs. We invite you to join us for a consultation to learn if vision therapy is an appropriate solution for you.
