MYTH #3: Can’t I Just Do Eye Exercises At Home?  Why Do I Need Vision Therapy?

Vision Therapy is much more than an eye exercise program. Developmental Optometrists are experts that can guide the program. They help people correct issues that affect eye teaming, eye tracking, visual memory, hand/eye coordination, dynamic acuity, peripheral awareness, and visual discrimination. Developmental Optometrists that are Board Certified are specially trained and uniquely qualified to diagnose and treat vision problems including strabismus (crossed eyes) and amblyopia (lazy eye). Vision Therapy involves the use of prisms, lenses, filters, and activities designed to improve and enhance the brain/eye connection. Activities are age-appropriate and designed to be fun for children.

Vision Therapy corrects the vision problems that affect learning. School and learning is then easier and more fun for your child.
