Who Benefits from Vision Therapy
From the very young to the elderly, people of all ages have experienced the profound difference vision therapy can make in visual comfort, performance and quality of life. Students with learning disabilities, office workers suffering from constant eye strain, patients recovering from stroke or traumatic brain injury, even athletes wishing to enhance their reaction times and coordination—anyone diagnosed with a vision problem or variable visual performance may potentially benefit from vision therapy (VT).
For some people, difficulties in reading, writing or learning are actually the result of a hidden vision problem. Using vision therapy to treat these problems, we help patients to improve eye movement and focusing skills, eye-hand coordination, convergence, visual memory skills, as well as other areas of their vision, for a more enjoyable and successful learning experience.

Vision can be compromised for those suffering from neurological disorders, trauma to the central nervous system, or brain injuries, such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke, birth injury, brain damage, head injury, whiplash, cerebral palsy, multiple schlerosis (MS), or other conditions. Our experts effectively treat these visual consequences, from mild to severe, using vision therapy. Details.
