Vision Therapy is powerful, unique and accessible, yet is often misunderstood. Vision Therapy encompasses many specific activities and can assist people with a myriad of visual issues. These include minimising your vision correction, helping both eyes work together, and the enhancing high level visual skills of athletes. Each program is tailor-made for the patient. There are different types of Vision Therapy available. Literally hundreds of different activities exist, all designed to assist you to use your vision in a more efficient way and are selectively picked by our vision therapist.
VISION THERAPY FOR KIDS
Healthy vision is achieved when a series of developmental milestones are met. These milestones are unique to each child and are markers of their visual skills. Sometimes there can be a delay in the way a child develops these skills. These delays can cause problems with a child's learning ability. Vision Therapy can stimulate your childs development, helping to give them these visual skills so important to their learning.
VISION THERAPY FOR ADULTS
Vision Therapy is not only for children but also adults. No matter your age, it isn’t too late for Vision Therapy to improve visual ability. As adults we learn to “cope” with problems we experience but this does not need to be the case for visual problems.
