Is Vision Therapy Right for You?

Vision therapy is a transformative solution for many individuals dealing with various visual challenges. To determine if you or a loved one is a suitable candidate for vision therapy, it's essential to understand the symptoms and conditions that may benefit from this specialized approach.

Typical Candidates for Vision Therapy

  • Children Struggling in School

    Children who exhibit difficulties with reading, writing, or maintaining attention in class may benefit from vision therapy. If a child is underperforming in school and conventional interventions have not yielded the desired results, vision therapy may be the solution.

  • Adults with Visual Discomfort

    Adults who experience frequent eye strain, headaches, or visual discomfort during reading, computer work, or other visual tasks may be candidates for vision therapy. These symptoms can often be linked to underlying vision problems that therapy can address.

  • People with Binocular Vision Issues

    Vision therapy can often improve problems with binocular vision, such as strabismus (crossed eyes) or amblyopia (lazy eye). Adults and children may benefit from treatment and exercises designed to align their eyes and improve visual function.

  • Convergence or Focusing Problems

    Individuals with focusing challenges or who struggle with convergence (the ability to bring both eyes together) — which can affect reading and other close-up tasks — may find relief and improved visual comfort through vision therapy.

  • Visual Processing Disorders

    Vision therapy can strengthen the brain-eyes connection and benefit those with difficulties processing visual information, which can impact perception and comprehension.

  • Post-Concussion Vision Problems

    Following a concussion, some individuals experience visual symptoms such as double vision or tracking difficulties. Vision therapy can help in regaining visual function and comfort post-TBI.


Personalized Treatment

Vision therapy is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Each therapy program is tailored to the individual's specific needs and challenges. Whether you're a child struggling in school or an adult dealing with visual discomfort, vision therapy offers a personalized path to visual success.

While the above indicators can provide insight into whether vision therapy might be beneficial, it's crucial to undergo a professional evaluation by an experienced optometrist or vision therapist. A comprehensive eye exam is necessary to uncover any underlying vision issues and determine whether vision therapy is the appropriate treatment.

My husband and I have visited many many eyecare places and Laurie Family Eyecare was the tops. Exam... was professional and accurate. The team of technicians and staff were incredibly helpful and was very accurate with our selections. Prices were so much lower then we have paid elsewhere. When we went to pickup our purchases they were even better then we could have imagined. Doctor Brad is kind, and so professional.
