Optometric Vision Therapy

What is Optometric Vision Therapy?

Optometric Vision Therapy is an individualized, supervised, treatment program designed to correct visual-motor, perceptual, and cognitive deficiencies. Optometric Vision Therapy sessions include procedures designed to enhance the brain’s ability to control:

  • Amblyopia (lazy eye)
  • Strabismus (eye turn)
  • Eye tracking and eye teaming
  • Eye focusing abilities
  • Eye movements
  • Eye-hand coordination
  • Computer-related vision problems
  • Visual processing
  • Sports vision

Other treatment areas include:

  • Autism and Development delays
  • Post-Concussion Syndrome and acquired brain injuries (ABI)
  • Convergence Insufficiency and double vision
  • Nonverbal learning disability (NVLD)
  • Poor spatial awareness
  • Vision and reading
  • Vision loss
  • Visual motor problems
  • Visual stress headaches

Our Vision Therapy program consists of an individualized plan of treatment procedures using lenses, prisms, instrumentation, visual and bi-ocular occlusion meant to improve binocular function, or to help the eyes learn to work together to process visual information. A trained therapist under the direction of Dr. Wilson works with the patient one to two times per week for a period of 3-6 months, depending on the nature and severity of the patient’s condition. Home therapy, or “homework” is also prescribed in order to reinforce new skills learned at the office. The patient is regularly seen by Dr. Wilson throughout the course of therapy for progress examinations in order to assess treatment goals.
