Our comprehensive eye exam goes beyond 20/20, learning how our patients use their eyes to gather, process and integrate their vision.
Vision Therapy & Rehabilitation Evaluation
A vision therapy examination looks at three main areas of visual function that are necessary for clear and comfortable vision. These areas include: binocularity (eye teaming), accommodation (eye focusing) and visual perception (eye tracking, visual memory, speed and processing). These visual skills are especially important for children in school since 80% of the learning that takes places in a typical classroom is visual.
Common Symptoms of Visual Disorders:
- Blurred or double vision
- Squinting/ eye rubbing
- Dizziness/nausea after reading
- Head tilting
- Closing or covering an eye
- Avoidance of near work (books, schoolwork)
- Frequent loss of place
- Omits, inserts or re-reads words
- Poor reading comprehensive
- Smart in everything but school
After a full work-up, the doctor will prescribe a tailored therapy program to meet the patient’s specific needs. The therapy requires a time commitment of weekly sessions for anywhere between 4-6 months, with periodic re-evaluations.
