Vision Therapy

Unveiling the Benefits of Vision Therapy

Vision therapy offers a comprehensive, individually tailored program of visual rehabilitation to improve and enhance the communication between the brain and eyes, leading to superior performance in activities such as reading, learning, and memory retention.

Uncovering the Basics of Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation

Neur-optometric rehabilitation utilizes neuroplasticity to establish and refine brain connections, enhancing visual processing capabilities.

Unveiling the Benefits of Sports Vision Training

Sports vision therapy is a specialized form of vision care that focuses on providing tailored visual support for athletes. It begins with refractive correction, eyewear, and appropriate vision care to help prevent injuries and improve athletic performance. This practice also includes therapies to help train the athlete’s visual system to perform optimally in their sport and includes skills such improving tracking accuracy, hand-eye coordination, dynamic vision, and contrast sensitivity.

Signs You Should Schedule Vision Therapy for Your Child

Who can see the advantages of receiving Vision Therapy? Vision Therapy can be beneficial to people of all ages and genders. It can help improve visual skills such as eye coordination, focusing, tracking, convergence and visual perception. By improving these skills, it can make activities such as reading and writing easier to do, and can even enhance sports performance.

Who can benefit from the practice of Neuro-Optometry? This innovative approach to eye care emphasizes the importance of brain-eye interactions and how they affect visual functioning.

Vision is a critical aspect of reading and learning, with over 17 different skills required for effective performance. To evaluate these skills thoroughly, comprehensive eye examinations are conducted to detect and treat vision-related issues such as tracking, eye teaming, focusing and beyond. Here at our clinic, we provide specialised developmental eye exams and vision therapy services for children struggling in their reading or learning abilities.

With numerous sections of the brain being involved in the visual process, research has demonstrated that following an acquired traumatic brain injury, 40% of patients struggle with properly coordinating their eyes to view near objects (convergence insufficiency), 30% experience difficulty with the ability to focus (accommodative insufficiency), and up to 90% are confronted with issues related to ocular motor control (oculomotor dysfunction).

Vision therapy is an evidence-based form of rehabilitative care that works to improve the efficiency of the visual system by strengthening the connection between the brain and eyes.

Common symptoms related to visual deficits include but at not limited to:
Sufferers of headaches and eyestrain from prolonged near work may reap benefits from wearing contact lenses
Causes and symptoms of light sensitivity
Inequality in digital screen time
Eye lenses help relieve nausea and dizziness symptoms
Prescription eyewear for nausea and dizziness relief
