Exceptional Vision Therapy from Insight Vision Center Optometry
Are you or your child suffering from blurred or double vision? Is your child constantly losing their place while reading? Dealing with visual processing difficulties masked as dyslexia? Vision therapy might be for you!
What It Is
Vision Therapy is a custom program of exercises to strengthen the eyes and brain to treat many vision problems and learning issues. By using lenses, computer software, 3-D pictures, and hands-on activities, our vision therapy program strengthens visual skills in two main categories: functional vision skills and visual perceptual skills.
Functional Visual Skills
The mechanics of the eyes, how they move and team together. This includes: tracking, convergence/divergence, depth perception, peripheral vision, eye teaming.
Visual Perceptual Skills
How the brain processes and understands what the eyes are seeing. Think if it as your visual problem solving skills. This includes: visual discrimination, figure ground, memory, spatial relations and visual-motor integration (eye-hand coordination).
Our vision therapy program serves patients in Costa Mesa CA and the surrounding communities. It usually consists of a weekly in-office session with our vision therapists and doctors, coupled with home activities that help to reinforce newly learned skills. Depending on our patient’s condition, vision therapy may be prescribed for several months up to a year. We track each patient with routine progress evaluations and also have a fun incentive program to keep our patients motivated and working hard.
Why We Offer Vision Therapy
Vision therapy is about changing lives and setting out patients back on the road to success. We don’t just rely on studies to know that vision therapy is effective, we’ve seen these results ourselves and in our patient’s lives.
A mom with tears in her eyes after her child graduated from vision therapy, a thank you card with hand draw pictures from our vision therapy graduates, and cute finger paintings thanking us for fixing their eyes- these are just a few of the reasons why we offer vision therapy. Because we aren’t just fixing eyes, we are changing lives.
