Therapy for Visual Skills

All sorts of skills are developed over time—even the ones we take for granted, like walking, talking, and eyesight. We develop visual skills in much the same way as other skills. And, just as other skills are important for life, visual skills are crucial to almost everything we do.

The body is a complex system, with the brain working in tandem with other parts of the body to produce function and movement. If the brain and eyes don’t work together, vision therapy may be needed to help correct this. Think of it as physiotherapy for the eyes.

What Is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is more than just eye exercises. It’s an evidence-based practice that aims to retrain vital visual skills. Most importantly, vision therapy is tailored to each patient. Everyone’s treatment plan will look a little bit different depending on their needs.

At a comprehensive eye exam, your optometrist will evaluate more than just your vision. We’ll assess how well your eyes work together as a team, depth perception, eye focusing, eye tracking, and more.

Once we determine that vision therapy may be right for you, we’ll develop a treatment plan that includes a combination of in-office procedures led by a doctor and at-home work to help solidify your skills.

Does My Child Need Vision Therapy?

Children’s learning and development rely on their visual skills. So, if they’re struggling in school, it may be a sign that there’s a vision issue at play.

The following issues may indicate that your child needs an appointment with an optometrist to discuss vision therapy:

  • Poor reading comprehension
  • Holding books close to the face while reading
  • Short attention span with close-up tasks
  • Losing or misplacing items
  • Clumsiness and knocking things over
  • Skipping or repeating lines while reading

If you notice any problems with your child’s learning, be sure to book them an appointment to rule out a vision condition.
