Everyone knows the importance that exercise plays in maintaining good health, and our eyes are no exception.

Simple home eye exercises may slightly relax your tired eyes and reduce eye strain in the short term, but they don’t address underdeveloped visual skills.

Only a program of vision therapy can improve the visual skills children and adults need in order to excel at school, work and while playing sports. .

If you have trouble focusing on a line of text while you read, have subpar hand-eye-body coordination or poor peripheral vision, you likely need to develop your visual skills.

Vision Therapy Can Help

A vision therapy program trains the eyes and brain to work together more efficiently and quickly. It corrects certain eye alignment and other binocular vision problems.

Vision therapy includes specific eye exercises paired with special lenses, prisms or eye patches to help improve poor visual skills and binocular vision problems. The program is designed and supervised by your eye doctor.
