Yes. Majority of learning is done through vision. And many skills including eye focusing, movement, teaming, as well as visual perception interfere with the learning ability to a great extent. An individual with normal intelligence and 20/20 vision may still have learning-related vision problems.
A full comprehensive eye examination must be completed by your eye doctor before a visual skills assessment can be conducted to determine whether you are a good vision therapy candidate. If you are interested in vision therapy service and do not have a regular optometrist, you are welcome to see one of our great doctors.
If you are a candidate, the vision therapy doctor will prescribe and supervise an individualized vision therapy program for your specific needs. The one-hour, in-office vision therapy sessions are typically scheduled over a 15-20 week period or longer. In addition, therapy is supplemented by daily “homework” activities prescribed by the the therapist between in-office visits.
All of our licensed Optometrists are able to screen, assess and educate you about any underlying visual conditions that affect your day to day activities and lifestyle. We will learn more about your specific concerns and offer solutions or recommendations.
Our eye care team and Optometrists are happy to provide and recommend custom vision therapy services that help your visual needs. To learn more, please make an appointment with our Optometrists and we would be delighted to assist you.
