Comprehensive Visual Analysis
Vision is more than just 20/20 eyesight!
Clear eyesight is 1 of 17 different visual skills needed for an efficient and accurate visual system. Many people will have clear “eyesight,” but are slow readers or have difficulty keeping their place while reading. They may suffer from discomfort or fatigue while reading or doing close work.
Vision Evaluation for Children
The American Optometric Association recommends an eye exam at six months, three years and five years old. While in school, yearly assessments are recommended, especially with increased uses of computers, tablets and smartphones.
What is Vision Therapy?
Vision therapy is designed by Developmental Optometrists, and is a doctor-supervised progressive program to improve visual skills. It is individualized one-on-one hour long sessions. Similar to speech therapy, or physical therapy, vision therapy helps with any deficiencies that may cause problems in school, or life.
Glasses or contact lenses are usually part of the initial plan. Vision therapy may be recommended and requires a committed plan of individually designed clinical visits with the optometrist and followed with home-vision therapy.
