Vision therapy uses eye exercises to treat vision problems that can interfere with reading and learning. Think of it as physical therapy for the eyes and brain! Wearing glasses or contact lenses may help children see clearly, but it doesn’t treat underlying issues with the way their brains take in visual information and make sense of it. Advocates of vision therapy claim that eye exercises can correct problems with visual processing, and help with several attention and learning issues.
The exercises are conducted in the optometrist’s practice or at home with parental supervision.
