VISION
THERAPY

Vision therapy or optometric vision therapy is a supervised program created to improve visual functions. It is a non-invasive therapy that helps development of visual functions through different sets of activities using wide range of different tools. Ideally, the home-based solutions are complemented with in-office vision therapy performed by a trained eye care professional.

Myths about vision therapy

One of the most persistent myths about vision therapy is that it only works for kids up to the age of 7. However, age IS NOT a factor in the success although it slows the progression of the therapy. There are numerous studies and books written by adults that recovered by using vision therapy such as Dr. Sue Barry in her book “Fixing my Gaze”, who achieved success through vision therapy at the age of 47! It is never too late!

Vision therapy for adults

Most ophthalmologies still say that vision therapy or lazy eye cannot be helped after the age of 6-8, which was debunked by several studies. The studies showed that the improvements are possible also for older individuals. This is due to brain plasticity – the ability of the brain to rewire itself. There is no cut-off age at which this stops, it just starts slowing down with age. Once again, vision therapy can help, no matter the age!

Compliance – the key to successful vision therapy

Success of vision therapy depends on different elements, but one of the central is repeatability and regularity of performing vision therapy exercises. This is known as compliance or adherence to the training program. The problem with some older methods of vision therapy is that the exercises are repetitive and boring, so young kids refuse to the exercises. For this reason it is very important to make vision therapy exciting and fun!
