Pediatrics and Vision Therapy
Pediatric eye examinations performed by an Optometrist is important for ensuring a child’s eyes are healthy and have the visual skills necessary for learning and development. They are important to detect many eye conditions including: refractive error, strabismus, amblyopia, and more. Some visual conditions cannot be treated adequately with just glasses, contact lenses and/or patching, and are best resolved through Vision Therapy.
At Envision Eye Care, Vision Therapy (VT) uses an individualized treatment program designed to correct visual-motor and/or perceptual-cognitive deficiencies. VT is designed to enhance the brain’s ability to control: eye alignment, 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. VT can benefit many patients of all ages including children, adults, athletes, and individuals with traumatic brain injury. Contact us to learn more about our Vision Therapy services.
