Empowered Learning Transformation Centers
Some visual conditions cannot be treated adequately with just glasses, contact lenses and/or patching, and are best resolved through a program of Vision Therapy.
Vision Therapy is an individualized, supervised, treatment program designed to correct visual-motor and/or perceptual-cognitive deficiencies. Vision Therapy sessions include procedures designed to enhance the brain’s ability to control:
Eye tracking and eye teaming
Eye focusing abilities
Eye movements, and/or
Visual-motor skills and endurance are developed through the use of specialized computer and optical devices, including therapeutic lenses, prisms, and filters. During the final stages of therapy, the patients newly acquired visual skills are reinforced and made automatic through repetition and by integration with motor and cognitive skills.
WHO BENEFITS FROM VISION THERAPY?
Children and adults with visual challenges, such as:
Learning Related Vision Problems
Vision Therapy can help those individuals who lack the necessary visual skills for effective reading, writing, and learning (i.e., eye movement and focusing skills, convergence, eye-hand activity and visual memory skills).
Poor Binocular Coordination
When the two eyes fail to work together as an effective team, performance in many areas can suffer (reading, sports, depth perception, eye contact, etc.). Vision Therapy rectifies this, by helping individuals develop normal coordination and teamwork of the two eyes (binocular vision).
Convergence Insufficiency (Common Near Vision Disorder)
Convergence insufficiency occurs when the eyes don’t turn inward properly while focusing on a nearby object. When you read or look at a close object, the eyes should converge (turn inward together to focus), so that one will see a single image.
Recent scientific research, funded by the National Eye Institute and conducted at Empowered Learning Transformation Centers Clinic, has proven that in-office Vision Therapy is the best treatment for Convergence Insufficiency.
