The Gateway to Improved Vision

Vision therapy refers to exercises performed in-office with the supervision of a doctor that are designed to correct specific vision problems. The exercises aim to strengthen the muscles around the eyes and to retrain the visual system to correct whatever issue is causing poor vision.

Similar to physical therapy, vision therapy exercises the physical aspects of the visual system, including the eyes and surrounding muscles, as well as the parts of the brain that control vision.

Our Methods of Choice

We offer two types of vision therapy, and we have found them to be quite successful. However, it is important to note that vision therapy requires time and commitment to produce results.

Orthoptic vision therapy is the treatment of abnormal visual traits with exercises, lenses, prisms, or computer-assisted visual activities. The therapeutic plan is usually administered over several months and can involve some at-home exercises to perform regularly, on top of the exercises that are performed in-office.

RightEye is a commercialized eye-tracking solution that we use to complement our vision therapy programs. It is a 5-minute, computer-operated test that tracks your eye movements and records it into an easy-to-digest report.

This allows us to better understand your child’s unique needs and how we can adjust their program to create a treatment plan that works.

What Conditions Can Vision Therapy Treat?

Vision therapy can relieve symptoms for a myriad of vision problems and improve various visual functions.

Amblyopia, or “lazy eye,” occurs when one eye does not develop properly, causing the other to wander. Vision therapy can help the eyes regain normal functionality and work together.

Strabismus occurs when the eyes are not properly aligned and point in different directions. One eye may turn inward or outward, up or down, while the other remains straight.

More subtle vision problems, called phorias or tropias, can cause significant eye strain and fatigue, although it may not be outwardly noticeable.

Vision therapy can significantly improve the ability to move eyes simultaneously and focus on objects up-close and far away.

Our Services

The first step towards safeguarding your child’s vision is booking them an eye exam. When you bring your child in, we’ll test the quality of their vision as well as assess their overall eye health, helping to ensure that any potential eye conditions are caught early and dealt with effectively.

Children’s Eye Exams

Myopia is one of the most common vision problems affecting children around the world. Luckily, we can help you find the most effective way to manage myopia in your child so that they can get back to discovering their world with the clearest vision possible.

Myopia Control

Some eye conditions, like strabismus and amblyopia, can develop early in your child’s life. With vision therapy, we’ll be able to develop a series of exercises specific to the needs of your child that are designed to improve their vision over time.

Vision Therapy

Some eye diseases can develop over the course of a few years without patients exhibiting any symptoms, and can ultimately lead to vision loss. We’re here to diagnose eye diseases as quickly as possible and find effective management tools to protect your child’s sight.
