What Is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is like physical therapy for the visual system, including the eyes and the parts of the brain that control vision. This is a non-surgical and customized program of visual activities designed to correct certain vision problems and/or improve visual skills.

Overall, the goal of vision therapy is to treat vision problems that cannot be treated successfully with eyeglasses, contact lenses and/or surgery alone, and help people achieve clear, comfortable binocular vision.
