Every vision therapy program is individualized to meet the patient’s and/or family’s needs. Once recommendations are made, we strive to make accommodations that work for the patient, family, budget, distance and time challenges.
Toddlers and Pre-K: Children between three and five years of age may be evaluated and recommended a series of foundational vision therapy activities to foster binocular vision development.
Vision skills development: To treat binocular vision disorders, a vision therapy program of 15 to 25 weeks of weekly, in-office 60-minute therapy sessions is typically recommended.
Visual processing development: To treat binocular vision and visual processing disorders, a program of vision therapy of up to 40 weeks is recommended.
Special needs: Many individuals with diagnoses such as Autistic Spectrum, Cerebral Palsy or Down Syndrome may benefit from a course of vision therapy.
Sports vision therapy: Athletes at any stage of their game can improve their performance with vision therapy. Or, if you are having trouble getting to the next level in your particular sport even after stepping up your practice, you might have a visual problem limiting your success. Visual abilities including eye-hand coordination, tracking, focusing, visual reaction timing and peripheral vision may be improved through a sports-focused course of vision therapy.
Vision loss, traumatic brain injury, stoke: Individuals who have experienced changes in vision due to traumatic brain injuries, stoke or illness would likely benefit from a functional vision evaluation. Treatment through vision therapy can result in remediating problems with eye teaming, tracking, diplopia (double vision), perceptual and/or focusing problems.
Our practice offers several unique benefits in our vision therapy programs.
- Structured “homework” activities to be completed outside of in-office treatment, showing progress more readily and resulting in shorter therapy programs
- Competitive session fees and payment plans
- Flexibility in frequency or length of sessions
- Treatment for all ages including learning-related vision problems, developmental delays, strabismus, amblyopia, sports coordination, traumatic brain injury, concussion, stroke and permanent vision loss
- Programs designed to treat the “whole” person, which include visual-motor activities, peripheral expansion, visualization, primitive reflexes, and syntonics
In our practice, vision therapy is delivered one-on-one with an experienced vision therapist and performed under a doctor’s supervision and evaluation. Our vision therapy practice devotes a large amount of space, equipment and continuing education to deliver a full scope of treatment. Our goal is to help you achieve clear, comfortable binocular vision:
- Eye alignment
- Eye focusing
- Eye teaming
- Eye tracking
- Visual processing
