Therapy for Visual Skills
All sorts of skills are developed over time—even the ones we take for granted like walking, talking, and eyesight. We develop visual skills in much the same way as other skills. And, just as other skills are important for life, visual skills are crucial to almost everything we do.
The body is a complex system, with the brain working in tandem with other parts of the body to produce function and movement. If the brain and eyes don’t work together as a team, vision therapy may be needed to help correct this. Think of it like physiotherapy for the eyes!

What Is Vision Therapy?
Vision therapy is more than just eye exercises! It’s an evidence-based practice that aims to retrain vital visual skills. Most importantly, vision therapy is tailored to each individual patient. Everyone’s treatment plan will look a little bit different depending on their needs.
At a comprehensive eye exam, your optometrist will evaluate more than just your vision. We’ll assess how well your eyes are working together as a team, depth perception, eye focusing, eye tracking, and more.
If we determine that vision therapy may be right for you, we can develop a treatment plan that includes a combination of in-office sessions and at-home work to help solidify your skills.

Does My Child Need Vision Therapy?

- Short attention span with close-up tasks
