Vision Therapy is a type of Physical Therapy for the eyes.

What is Vision Therapy?
Vision therapy is a sequence of therapy procedures that are individually prescribed and monitored by the doctor to develop efficient visual skills and visual processing. Vision therapy is prescribed following a comprehensive evaluation of the visual system. Oftentimes, computer based vision therapy programs are used to improve visual motor and visual processing skills.
The vision therapy program is based on the results of standardized tests, the patient’s specific signs and symptoms plus a careful look at the needs of the patient. The use of lenses, prisms, filters, occluders, specialized instruments and computer programs is an integral part of vision therapy. Typically, vision therapy is administered as a combination of in-office visits combined with prescribed, daily, home-vision therapy procedures. The in-office therapy is designed to make the patient aware of his or her visual deficiencies under controlled conditions. Then by a feedback process the patient is taught strategies to improve visual performance. Home therapy is directed at practicing the newly learned visual skills until the initial conscious effort becomes automatic.
You may need Vision Therapy after certain eye injuries and if you suffer from certain visual issues.
