Poor Binocular (two-eyed) Coordination

Vision Therapy helps individuals develop normal coordination and teamwork of the two eyes (binocular vision). When the two eyes fail to work together as an effective team, performance in many areas can suffer (reading, sports, depth perception, eye contact, etc.).To learn more about binocular (two-eyed) vision, visit any of these web pages on:

Convergence Insufficiency (common near vision disorder)

Recent scientific research — funded by the National Eye Institute and conducted at Mayo Clinic — has proven that in-office Vision Therapy is the best treatment for Convergence Insufficiency. To learn about this disorder, go to:

Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)

Vision Therapy programs offer much higher cure rates for turned eyes and/or lazy eye when compared to eye surgery, glasses, and/or patching without therapy. The earlier the patient receives Vision Therapy the better; however, our office successfully treats patients well past 21 years of age. Recent scientific research has disproven the long-held belief that children with lazy eye (or amblyopia) can’t be helped after age 7.

Near Vision, Environmental Stresses, Eye Strain

21st century life demands more from our vision than ever before.  Between school, work and home, many children and adults use their near vision almost constantly.  Environmental stresses on the visual system, including excessive computer use or close work, can induce blurred vision, eyestrain, headaches, and other problems. To learn about these visual problems and vision therapy for them, see:

Neurological Disorders, Physical Trauma, and Vision

Vision can be compromised as a result of neurological disorders or trauma to the nervous system. Vision Therapy can effectively treat the visual consequences of brain trauma, including double vision. To learn more about visual rehabilitation with vision therapy, see:

Visual Rehabilitation for Special Needs

Developmental delays, visual perceptual visual-motor deficits, Attention Deficit Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and other learning disabilities can be vision-related. To learn more about vision therapy as it relates to developmental delays or disorders, see:

Vision and Sports

Strong visual skills are critical to sports success. Not much happens in sports until your eyes instruct your hands and body as to what to do! We can measure and successfully improve eye-hand coordination, visual reaction time, peripheral vision, eye focusing, eye tracking and teaming, visualization skills, and more. Find out how children and adults improve coordination and sports ability through Vision Therapy.

Vision Therapy can be the answer to many visual problems. Don’t hesitate to contact our office with your questions.
