Vision therapy is similar to physical therapy in that it works with the external and internal muscle systems of the eye, using the brain's feedback to see an image clearly and comfortably. The eyes are an extension of the brain. Our eyes help make “seeing” possible, but vision is reliant on the eye-brain connection. If the muscle systems of the eye aren't working properly, vision will be difficult or non-existent.
Vision therapy treatment is used to correct common visual disorders in addition to improving visual skills, such as focus and depth perception. These treatments can improve the brain's ability to better communicate with the eyes. Vision Therapy may be used when glasses, contact lenses or surgery alone do not solve the problem.
