VT

You can think of vision therapy as physical therapy for the eyes and the brain. The neurological aspect is very important because the eyes are direct physical extensions of the brain. We see with our brains and minds, not just our eyes.

Vision therapy is a highly effective non-surgical treatment for many common visual problems such as lazy eye (amblyopia), crossed eyes (strabismus), double vision, convergence insufficiency, and vision conditions that interfere with learning. Individually prescribed In-office sessions introduce a sequence of therapeutic procedures that develop efficient visual skills and visual processing. Specialized lenses, filters, occluders, instruments and digital programs are utilized to maximize benefits by ensuring all visual skills are fully integrated at an automated level.
