Vision Therapy Treatment Plans

First and foremost, vision therapy is not just eye exercises! Vision therapy is not to be confused with any self-directed, self-help program of eye exercises which has been marketed to the public.

Vision therapy is:

  • a progressive program of vision “exercises”or procedures
  • performed under a doctor’s supervision
  • individualized to fit the visual needs of each patient
  • conducted in-office, in once or twice weekly sessions of 30 minutes to one hour
  • sometimes supplemented with procedures done at home between office visits (“home reinforcement” or “homework”)

Vision therapy is (depending on the case) prescribed to…

  • help patients develop or improve fundamental visual skills and abilities
  • improve visual comfort, ease, and efficiency
  • change how a patient processes or interprets visual information

In-office vision therapy treatments at All Ages Vision Care are supervised by our optometric vision care professionals. Various types of treatment devices are used (and some are regulated medical devices), such as:

  • corrective lenses (regulated medical devices)
  • therapeutic lenses (regulated medical devices)
  • prism lenses (regulated medical devices)
  • optical filters
  • eye patches or occluder
  • electronic targets with timing mechanisms
  • vision therapy software
  • vestibular (balance) equipment
  • visual-motor-sensory integration training devices

The first step in any vision therapy program is a comprehensive vision exam. Following a thorough evaluation, a qualified vision care professional can advise the candidate as to whether vision therapy would be appropriate treatment.
