Williamson Eye Care Vison Therapy Program

 

Optometric Vision Therapy is a progressive program of vision procedures performed under doctor supervision. The program is individualized to fit the visual needs of each patient enrolled in the program. Therapy sessions are generally conducted in-office, in weekly sessions of 45 minutes to 1 hour. Sessions are supplemented with procedures done at home between office visits. Depending on the case, the procedures are prescribed to help patients develop or improve fundamental visual skills and abilities, and improve visual comfort, ease, and efficiency. 

Vision therapy is used to treat issues with eye focusing, eye tracking, eye-hand coordination, sports vision, computer-related vision problems, crossed or wandering eyes, amblyopia (lazy eye) depth perception, visual sensory integration, and vision processing related to reading and learning problems. Symptoms can include tired eyes, difficulty focusing, blurred vision, double vision, eye strain, loss of place while reading, words moving around on the page, poor reading comprehension, avoidance of close work, headaches, loss of concentration, and poor academic performance in an otherwise intelligent child. 

Since 80% of how we learn is done through our vision, it makes sense that vision problems have a profound effect on how we learn. Many children who experience academic difficulty often have a visual dysfunction in addition to their primary reading or learning problem. These conditions are treatable.

The first step in any vision therapy program is a comprehensive eye health exam and visual efficiency exam. Following a thorough evaluation, Dr. Lambert will prescribe vision therapy when appropriate. The goal for vision therapy is to improve fundamental visual skills, abilities, and comfort. All therapy sessions are administered by Dr. Lambert or Dr. Wrege as well as all progress checks to make sure the program is as effective as possible. 

If your child is struggling with reading or other school work, he or she may be suffering from a vision related problem. Take this survey to help identify any undiagnosed vision related learning problems.
