Vision therapy or optometric vision therapy is a supervised program created to improve visual functions. It is a non-invasive therapy that helps develop visual functions through different sets of activities using a wide range of different tools. Ideally, the home-based solutions are complemented with in-office vision therapy performed by a trained eye care professional.
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!
The success of vision therapy depends on different elements, but some of the central ones are 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 do the exercises. For this reason, it is very important to make vision therapy exciting and fun!
