What is Vision Therapy?
Vision therapy uses a series of exercises, which are supervised by an optometrist or other licensed eye care professional, to train your eyes and brain to work together as a team, correcting select vision problems and improving your visual skills.
Aids such as glasses and contact lenses can correct refractive errors, and procedures such as laser eye surgery can be used to alter your eye’s anatomy. Vision therapy is a non-surgical exercise routine that trains your visual system to work correctly, improving your vision.
Vision therapy involves using exercises chosen by your optometrist to address your visual needs and strengthen your visual system. These exercises are repeated regularly, and depending on the exercises, may incorporate aids such as metronomes, prisms, balance boards, and other instruments.
