What is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment to help correct specific visual challenges. Our Long Grove Optometrists may prescribe it if you experience double vision, crossed eyes, lazy eye or convergence insufficiency. It can also be effective after an accident impacts your eyes or when you have other conditions that may benefit from the treatment. Vision therapy is a progressive program of visual exercises performed under medical supervision and is occasionally supplemented with home exercises.

The goal of therapy addresses the underlying complications that impact your vision. It helps your eyes and brain learn or re-learn to work together for improved vision. During sessions, different techniques are used to improve the brain’s ability to control binocular vision, focusing, eye alignment and eye movements.

Why Would a Long Grove Optometrist Recommend Vision Therapy?

An optometrist in Long Grove may recommend vision therapy for a variety of reasons. Generally, we suggest the treatment when it may benefit your eyes and correct a specific problem. We do not recommend the treatment for vision concerns related to an eye condition or for normal changes to your vision that may occur as you age. Vision therapy is designed to correct perceptual-cognitive deficiencies or visual-motor deficiencies due to hereditary factors, trauma to the nervous system or inadequate sensorimotor development.

We often recommend vision therapy for children at a young age. Difficulties with school work often trigger parents and teachers to recommend students be evaluated by an eye doctor to determine if there is a vision problem impacting their studies. Since children are learning to use their eyes in specific ways, vision therapy helps with the goal of improving their control over their eyes and movements of their eyes. It may also help adults when a vision change may benefit from re-training your eyes
