Vision Therapy can be helpful for a wide variety of visual disorders including amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (crossed or wandering eye), eye teaming (binocular vision), focusing, and tracking disorders, and visual processing (perception) problems.
Vision therapy can also be very helpful in recovery from the visual challenges of concussion and acquired brain injury.
Vision therapy can start with children as young as three years of age, although five is generally a more appropriate age when children have the attentional and language skills necessary for more advanced therapy. There are no upper age limits for vision therapy as our brains have the flexibility to learn new skills, including visual skills, throughout life. Sue Barry’s landmark book Fixing My Gaze is a wonderful story of an adult gaining depth perception through vision therapy.
