It is never too late for Vision Therapy

Do you experience eye fatigue, headaches or troubles with focussing and concentration despite wearing glasses or contact lenses? You might need Vision Therapy.

What is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy comprises of an individualized series of vision procedures and exercises that help develop and improve upon our functional vision and visual information processing speed. It is a proven individualized neuro-optometric program performed under the supervision of a Developmental Optometrist that works at the level of the brain.

Functional vision is the ability of the visual system to not only obtain clear vision, but also comfortable vision at various distances for prolonged time periods. It contributes to the overall efficiency of the visual system. Visual information processing is the brain’s ability to take the information provided by the eyes and make sense out what is being seen. 

Our vision plays a significant role in our workplace and day-to-day life. A person requires 17 visual skills to form an efficient, symptom-free visual system and seeing 20/20 on a chart is one of those visual skills.

If you are an adult suffering from the following symptoms or conditions, vision therapy can help:

Eye fatigue or frequent headaches
Pressure behind eyes or sore eyes especially near the end of the day
Trouble focussing or maintaining focus especially when doing computer work or reading for an extended period of time
Blurred vision when reading or switching focus for near to far or vice versa
Double vision
Excessive blinking or squinting to maintain clear vision
Traumatic brain injury
Convergence insufficiency
Vision going in and out of focus at any distance

Don’t let your vision get in the way of living your best life. Take action.

If vision problems go undetected during childhood, they often do not resolve themselves and instead cause struggles in adulthood. Children with vision problems are likely to turn into adults with vision problems. Fortunately, vision therapy works at all ages! Vision is a learned skill, and our brain is capable of change at any age, a phenomenon known as neuroplasticity which means that we can train or retrain a brain to learn “new skills” at any age.

Sports Vision Therapy for Adults

Vision Therapy has been used for decades to enhance sports performance in adults who have well-functioning visual systems but wish to take their visual skills to the next level. Vision Therapy for sports performance works on improving visual skills such as eye teaming, eye focussing, eye tracking, visual motor integration and faster reaction times.

Living with a vision problem is more problematic than ever in today’s world

Advances in information technology and its increase in accessibility and necessity have placed a much higher demand on our vision and visual information processing system. We spend more time on digital devices today than we ever have before. This puts an enormous load on our visual system and if our visual system does not have the necessary tools, it can lead to a plethora of symptoms. As a result, many adults with vision problems struggle in the workplace and day-to-day life more now than they ever have before.

Vision Therapy is a proven and highly effective treatment to provide individuals with the appropriate visual tools required to overcome these challenges, thrive in the workplace and improve their quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely. Adults are often more motivated to improve their visual abilities which makes vision therapy effective in adulthood. Research has shown that in-office vision therapy produces statistically significant improvement in vision symptoms for adults. 

No. A vision therapy assessment is a thorough examination to detect any functional vision or visual information processing delays. If any of those are detected, then vision therapy is recommended, and the severity of the conditions and the estimated length of treatment can be determined. However, if it is found that the person’s symptoms are not due to an underlying visual condition, then vision therapy is not required. Thus, if you suspect a functional vision or visual information processing delay with yourself or your child, the first step is always to book a vision therapy assessment with the Developmental Optometrist. At the end of the assessment, the doctor will be able to tell you whether or not vision therapy can help.
