What is Vision Therapy?

Optometric Vision Therapy is:

• A progressive program of vision procedures

• Performed under doctor supervision

• Individualized to fit the visual needs of each patient

• Conducted in-office, in once or twice weekly sessions of 30 minutes to an hour

• Occasionally supplemented with procedures done at home between office visits

Depending on the case, the procedures are prescribed to:

• Help patients develop or improve fundamental visual skills and abilities

• Improve visual comfort, ease, and efficiency

• Change how a patient processes or interprets visual information

Optometric Vision Therapy Is Not Just Eye Exercises

Unlike other forms of exercise, the goal of Optometric Vision Therapy is not to strengthen eye muscles. Your eye muscles are already incredibly strong. Optometric Vision Therapy should not be confused with any self-directed program of eye exercises which is or has been marketed to the public. Optometric vision therapy is supported by ongoing evidence-based scientific research. Visit our Vision Therapy Resources page for more resources about vision therapy.
