Struggling in School with Learning-Related Vision Problems
Vision Therapy can help those individuals who lack the necessary visual skills for effective reading, writing, and learning. Those may include eye movement and focusing skills, convergence, eye-hand activity, and visual memory skills.
Excellent Students Preparing to Enter College
Even excellent students may find they want to be better prepared for the increased demands of college. The visual demands of college are much greater than high school. Many of our high school patients are top students but want to improve the efficiency of their visual system to keep up with the increased amount of reading and coursework.
Poor Eye Teaming (Binocular Coordination)
Vision Therapy helps individuals develop normal coordination and teamwork of the two eyes (binocular vision). When the two eyes fail to work together as an effective team, performance in many areas can suffer, including reading, sports, depth perception, and eye contact.
Lazy Eyes (Strabismus and Amblyopia)
Vision Therapy programs offer much higher cure rates for turned eyes and/or amblyopia when compared to eye surgery, glasses, and/or patching, without therapy. The earlier the patient receives Vision Therapy the better, however, our office has successfully treated patients well past age 21.
Eye Fatigue and Stress-Induced Occupational Visual Difficulties
Twenty-first century lifestyles demand more from our vision than ever before. Children and adults in our technological society constantly use their near vision at work and at home. Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) is one of the fastest growing health concerns in the workplace today. Environmental stresses on the visual system (including excessive computer use or close work) can induce eyestrain, headaches, and/or visual difficulties, which can be effectively treated with corrective lenses and/or Vision Therapy.
Vision can be compromised as a result of neurological disorders or trauma to the nervous system. These can include traumatic brain injuries, stroke, whiplash, developmental delays, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and autism spectrum disorder. Vision Therapy can effectively treat the visual consequences of trauma (including double vision).
Eye-Hand Coordination Improvement for Sports
Strong visual skills are critical to sports success. Not much happens in sports until your eyes instruct your hands and body as to what to do. Accurate vision and athletic visual skills can be measured, developed, and enhanced through Vision Therapy. Our Terre Haute vision therapy specialist can measure and successfully improve eye-hand coordination, visual reaction time, peripheral awareness, eye teaming, focusing, tracking, and visualization skills, to mention just a few.
Vision Therapy can be the answer to many developmental and learning issues.
