WHAT IS VISION THERAPY?
Vision therapy, managed and delivered by a professionally-trained therapist, is a doctor-supervised, non-surgical and personalized program of visual activities and exercises developed to help correct certain vision problems and improve visual skills. The goal of our vision therapy program is to literally "train" the visual system to correct itself.
Vision therapy with All Ages Vision Care helps train and teach a person's eye to work more efficiently together, which results in improved performance in reading, writing, certain learning dysfunctions, and attention disorders.
What are Signs that Vision Therapy Could Help My Child?
- A slow reader (usually behind classmates with reading speed and assignments)
- Avoids reading assignments, as well as reading for fun
- Headaches while reading
- Skips over words or sentences while reading
- Has difficulty understanding what is being read
- Reversing numbers and letters
- Short attention span, easily distracted
- Slow to finish school homework
- Tired eyes after short time periods of reading
- Motor skills are delayed (can't hold a pencil properly and poor finger dexterity)
A professional eye exam with Dr. Beasley will identify these problems. We can then present a personalized plan of vision therapy for improvement!
How Does Vision Therapy Work?
Following a professional eye exam with Dr. Beasley, we meet with you to review her diagnosis and the steps to help you improve your visual function with a personalized vision therapy program. Each patient's program includes both in-office and at-home exercises.
A typical vision therapy program might include approximately 6 one-hour sessions with one of our vision therapists scheduled over 3-week intervals. We give our patients specific instructions and materials to practice the at-nom exercises for approximately 30 minutes per day up to six days a week. We chart your progress during each in-office visit.
