What is Vision Therapy?

boy 20in 20front 20of 20eye 20chartVision Therapy is an individualized, supervised, treatment program designed to correct visual-motor and/or perceptual-cognitive deficiencies. Vision Therapy sessions include procedures designed to enhance the brain’s ability to control:
• eye alignment,
• eye tracking and eye teaming,
• eye focusing abilities,
• eye movements, and/or
• visual processing.
Visual-motor skills and endurance are developed through the use of specialized computer and optical devices, including therapeutic lenses, prisms, and filters. During the final stages of therapy, the patient’s newly acquired visual skills are reinforced and made automatic through repetition and by integration with motor and cognitive skills.

Davis EyeCare has recently acquired the HTS iNet tools program that simplifies at home therapy sessions. As long as you have an internet connection, you will be able to do many visual therapies at home. Our resident visual therapist, Linda, will instruct you how the system works, and make sure you are comfortable performing the tests.
