What is Vision Therapy?
Vision Therapy (visual training, vision training) is a customized supervised treatment program designed to correct visual-motor and/or perceptual-cognitive deficiencies which have various causes, such as:
inadequate sensor motor development
trauma to the nervous system (i.e., birth injury, brain trauma, closed head trauma, ect.)
in some cases, contributing hereditary factors (i.e., crossed-eyes, wandering eyes)
Vision therapy trains the entire visual system including the eyes, brain and body. It is equally important, however, to understand that vision therapy is a form of neurological training or rehabilitation. As such, it can be compared to some forms of occupational therapy or physical therapy’s goal is to train the patient’s brain to use the eyes to receive information effectively, to comprehend it quickly and to react to the information appropriately.
Vision therapy sessions include procedures designed to enhance to enhance the brain’s ability to control eye alignment, eye movements, focusing abilities, and eye teamwork (binocularly vision). Visual- motor skills and endurance are developed through the use of specialized computer and optical device, which may include therapeutic lenses, prism and filters. In the final stage of therapy, newly acquired visual skills are reinforced and made automatic through repetition and integration with motor and cognitive skills.
