Typical Candidates for Vision Therapy

  • Children Struggling in School

    Children who exhibit difficulties with reading, writing, or maintaining attention in class may benefit from vision therapy. If a child is underperforming in school and conventional interventions have not yielded the desired results, vision therapy may be the solution.

  • Adults with Visual Discomfort

    Adults who experience frequent eye strain, headaches, or visual discomfort during reading, computer work, or other visual tasks may be candidates for vision therapy. These symptoms can often be linked to underlying vision problems that therapy can address.

  • People with Binocular Vision Issues

    Vision therapy can often improve problems with binocular vision, such as strabismus (crossed eyes) or amblyopia (lazy eye). Adults and children may benefit from treatment and exercises designed to align their eyes and improve visual function.

  • Convergence or Focusing Problems

    Individuals with focusing challenges or who struggle with convergence (the ability to bring both eyes together) — which can affect reading and other close-up tasks — may find relief and improved visual comfort through vision therapy.

  • Visual Processing Disorders

    Vision therapy can strengthen the brain-eyes connection and benefit those with difficulties processing visual information, which can impact perception and comprehension.

  • Post-Concussion Vision Problems

    Following a concussion, some individuals experience visual symptoms such as double vision or tracking difficulties. Vision therapy can help in regaining visual function and comfort post-TBI.

Personalized Treatment

Vision therapy is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Each therapy program is tailored to the individual's specific needs and challenges. Whether you're a child struggling in school or an adult dealing with visual discomfort, vision therapy offers a personalized path to visual success.

While the above indicators can provide insight into whether vision therapy might be beneficial, it's crucial to undergo a professional evaluation by an experienced optometrist or vision therapist. A comprehensive eye exam is necessary to uncover any underlying vision issues and determine whether vision therapy is the appropriate treatment.

I recently finished Vision Therapy and am on my last check in. For me, Vision Therapy was well worth... it. I had a concussion five years ago that compounded additional vision issues onto ones I already had. I was in school at the time and struggled to keep up with my classmates. I had to read the same thing multiple times and longer because I skipped and misread words. My regular eye doctor, Dr. Arnold, highly recommended Vision Therapy to strengthen my eyes and to train my brain to process reading and other tasks properly. He teamed up with Dr. Smith and Vision Therapist Miss Kelsey for my care, so that I had more experienced people helping me through the process. To begin, I did a series of tests with Dr. Smith and Miss Kelsey to determine my starting point. On a weekly basis, I worked with Miss Kelsey through various exercises and did homework throughout the remainder of the week. There were many times when I was frustrated with my progress, especially when I struggled with some exercises. Miss Kelsey was incredibly encouraging and flexible to changing an exercise as needed. Throughout my time in vision therapy and after it, I experienced many improvements, particularly in reading and comprehension. When I had to study for a licensing exam, I could not believe the difference. It was so much easier and less stressful for me. I read quicker and remembered more than I would have before. For the first time in a long time, I felt confident in my learning and comprehension. Thank you Suburban Eye Care for helping me through my vision issues!

I highly recommend the Vision Therapy program! As an adult going through the process it opened up m... y eyes to what was really going on with me. I was having horrible anxiety about driving, going on vacation, going out with friends, even day to day activities were too much for me. It was because my eyes were not working together anymore(Convergence insufficiency & Vertical Heterophoria) and I was seeing double. Dr. Kayla Smith is a fantastic Optometrist who I saw throughout the program. She cares so much for her patients and listens to your concerns. Amanda G was my fantastic Vision Therapist. We worked together for 6 months. She sent me home with exercises to work on and met once a week in office. She's kind, warm and very very encouraging! Together they gave me the tools and exercises to work through vision issues and my anxiety that is being caused by my diagnosed problems. I graduated therapy and couldn't be more happy with the program. I am grateful that I was prescribed Prism glasses to wear when my eyes get fatigued to help with my Vertical Heterophoria(vertical misalignment of my right eye). If you're having vision issues, are anxious about being in a car or even living your normal life seems more anxiety ridden I suggest making an appointment for to see if you are a candidate for Vision Therapy!
