Who Needs Vision Therapy?

In some cases, individuals may have difficulty processing and interpreting what they see accurately, and vision therapy can help to improve their ability to both see and interpret. An eye doctor in Sebring or nearby communities can conveniently provide vision therapy for these patients to improve their vision:

  • Children and adults with crossed eyes, a wandering eye or other structural problems.
  • Special needs children who have difficulty focusing their attention on visual materials.
  • Individuals of any age with dyslexia or eye convergence problems that prevent them from reading accurately or comfortably.
  • Individuals with attention deficit disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder may also see improvement in concentration and productivity as a result of vision therapy.

How Is Vision Therapy Done?

Vision therapy employs a variety of equipment and techniques that help to improve visual perception and processing. It may use optical lenses, prisms, eye muscle exercises, occlusion, equipment and devices that help to improve visual acuity and eye-brain processing of visual data. Vision therapy may be used along with eye surgery to correct certain conditions. Vision therapy can be considered as physical therapy for the eyes, to improve visual function.

Therapy includes work with these materials at the optometrist’s office, along with additional work at home, under the supervision of parents if the patient is a child. Office visits may take 30 minutes to an hour. The additional “homework” may be done in varying time frames, depending on the severity of the problem. Favorable results are generally seen within an 8-week period, with improvement in visual focus, concentration, and better spatial competency.
