Optometric vision therapy has been proven to be an effective treatment for many types of problems affecting the vision system. The conditions we commonly treat include, but not limited to, conditions involving binocularity, accommodation, oculomotor disorders and visual perceptual-motor dysfunctions.
Our vision therapy services include the diagnosis, treatment and management of such disorders and dysfunctions of the vision system. We will complete an assessment in-office and formulate the proper treatment plan based on the findings. We will sit down with you to discuss the details. Based on the length of treatment, will typically complete periodic assessments to monitor progress.
The exact length and nature of the therapy program varies with the specific complexity of the diagnosed condition. On average, vision therapy sessions are one or two office visits per week (1-hour sessions) lasting between 6 weeks to 12 weeks long.
