Vision Therapy is a non-invasive treatment approach that uses exercises and activities to improve visual function. It can help with various eye conditions such as myopia, strabismus, convergence insufficiency, amblyopia, Down syndrome-related eye disorders, autism-related eye disorders, and computer vision syndrome.
Vision therapy exercises are customized to meet each patient's specific needs and can include in-office and at-home activities. By retraining and strengthening specific visual skills, vision therapy can improve visual acuity and skills such as eye tracking, focusing, and depth perception, leading to an overall improvement in quality of life.
