Vision Therapy Q & A
Vision therapy is a rehabilitative program specifically designed for the visual system, which includes your eyes and the portion of your brain that controls vision.
At Pediatric Vision Specialists, Dr. Bre develops personalized vision therapy programs that include neurosensory and neuromuscular activities that develop, rehabilitate, and enhance your child’s visual skills and processing.
Dr. Bre offers vision therapy as a treatment option for developmental and neurologically induced visual system dysfunctions. Some of the visual conditions that benefit from vision therapy include:
- Accommodative dysfunction
- Binocular vision problems
- Convergence insufficiency
- Motion sickness
- Oculomotor dysfunctions
- Visual processing disorder
Vision therapy may also benefit visual system dysfunctions that occur after a traumatic brain injury, including post-concussion vision syndrome, which can make reading difficult or cause visual changes like blurry or double vision.
Dr. Bre also provides vision therapy for athletes. Improving visual skills may help an athlete make those split-second decisions that give them a competitive edge in their sport and improve their performance and confidence.
Dr. Bre takes a personalized approach to vision therapy, developing treatment plans specific to your child’s visual needs and goals. The office-based therapy includes one-on-one sessions with a vision therapist who works under Dr. Bre’s direction.
During your child’s vision therapy, Dr. Bre and the vision therapist use state-of-the-art technology and treatments that make therapy fun and productive. Treatment includes tools and techniques that focus on movement, balance, cognitive abilities, and auditory processing to improve visual abilities.
Vision therapy at Pediatric Vision Specialists teaches your child’s visual system how to correct itself, which may improve learning in the classroom or abilities out on the field. Vision therapy may also make your child a more efficient reader and decrease eye strain when using electronic devices.
Though you may find many at-home vision therapy options, office-based vision therapy is more effective at improving visual skills, especially when conducted under the supervision of an experienced pediatric specialist like Dr. Bre.
