Vision therapy can best be described as physical therapy for the eyes. Specific exercises are programmed to train your eyes to work better together and to improve visual processing.
The average vision therapy program for eye teaming, tracking, and focusing disorders involves a 45 minute office visit each
week along with 15 minutes of homework to be completed 4 times per week. Most of these problems can be eliminated in 12-24 office visits
. More complicated problems, however, may require additional time. Visual processing problems can require longer periods of therapy, generally 24-36 visits.
Vision therapy involves training the brain to efficiently use the visual system in many different school and daily living activities.
