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.
