Vision disorders are one of the most underdiagnosed conditions in the United States today. That may seem like an overstatement, but the fact is that many conditions which are treatable through vision therapy get misdiagnosed as ADD, or worse, laziness or even stupidity. This is because many of these vision disorders are not discoverable through a "20/20" eye exam at an optometrist's office. Advances in modern medicine offer numerous strategies to ease or possibly alleviate vision disorders. Vision therapy is the result of these advances.
Vision therapy is a technique that can help a variety of eye problems. Many people have benefited from the treatment, and today, the field has expanded to address everything from dyslexia to convergence insufficiency.
There are numerous benefits to vision therapy, and it can be used to treat a wide variety of disorders. Vision therapy treats various disorders, including:
Ocular-Motor ("eye teaming") Dysfunctions
Visual-Perceptual ("eye-brain" coordination) Disorders
Areas of Treatment
. . . and how therapy can help.
