Vision Therapy

Optometric Vision Therapy, also called VT, is that part of optometric care devoted to developing, improving, and enhancing visual performance.  Vision therapy provides an opportunity for patients to develop their visual skills in the most efficient manner.  When the visual system works more efficiently, more visual information can be received, processed and comprehended.  Individuals with good visual skills read faster with less effort, understand more of what they read and retain it longer.  Through vision therapy, patients are able to develop more efficient visual performance thus greatly enhancing their lives.  

Vision therapy is the most effective approach to eliminating convergence and eye movement disorders as well as certain visual information processing disorders.  This optometric specialty involves various non-surgical therapeutic techniques, solely dedicated to developing and improving visual performance; how people see, not just what see.  It so successful because VISION IS LEARNED AND TRAINABLE.

  • Over ninety percent of an athlete's performance is guided by their visual system. Sports vision involves the evaluation and treatment of an athlete's visual skills to enhance and improve his or her ability to excel in any chosen sport.  Top athletic performance can not be achieved without top visual performance. Training specific visual tasks provides the guidance that an athlete needs to be successful. These essential functions should not be left up to chance. Athletes who have successfully completed sports vision training significantly out-perform those who have not.
