According to the American Optometric Association, up to 80% of a child’s learning in school is through vision and every 1 in 10 children have a vision problem significant enough to impact learning. It can be problems such as focusing, coordinating, eye tracking, visual attention, etc. Vision therapy is not only for children, but for adults as well. For adults often vision therapy is more effective because they are more motivated to improve their visual skills. After a comprehensive eye examination (orthoptic assessment) your eye doctor will refer for vision therapy to improve the visual skills.
Vision therapy is a progressive program of vision procedures, customized to fit the visual needs of each patient. Generally conducted in-office a few times a week with a combination of home procedures. We usually use therapeutic lenses, prisms and filters.
Our Goals are :
- Help patients to develop or improve fundamental visual skills and abilities
- Improve visual comfort, ease, and efficiency
- Change how a patient processes or interprets visual information
Conditions which can be improved with vision therapy:
- 3D/Stereo vision problems
- Blurred vision
- Convergence insufficiency or excess
- Crossed eyes (strabismus)(Esotropia or Exotropia)
- Double vision (diplopia)
- Focusing problems
- Lazy eyes (Amblyopia)
- Learning disabilities
Our clinic is well established with state of the art equipment and our staff is very confident when handling such conditions.
Myopia Progression Management
Myopia, also known as near-sightedness or short-sightedness, is a vision condition in which people find it difficult to see distant objects clearly. Globally, myopia has increased at an alarming rate with over 2 billion individuals diagnosed with it. High myopia (-5.0D or more) is associated with a higher risk of serious eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataract, retinal detachment and myopic macular degeneration (MMD) – which can even lead to vision impairment or blindness later in life.
Myopia progression is currently a global problem and over 5,000 researches have been done globally. There are a few options currently available to reduce progression of myopia. We at Vision Care can offer myopia progression spectacle lenses called MYOPILUX which is accepted by many global optometrists.
