Vision Therapy is Not Just For Kids

By Dave Skipper

The other day, I saw a patient who has symptoms of double vision and difficulty with hand-eye coordination. He also complains of a loss of place while reading and loss of concentration during task performance. He misreads words. These are common complaints I see from younger children. However, this patient is a 75-year-old adult.

After a few sessions, my patient began to realize that many of his symptoms were present when he was a kid. He just didn’t know any different. All this time, he was able to compensate for his visual inefficiency. Unfortunately, as he grew older, his symptoms became more and more unmanageable and he needed a way to reinvent the way he uses his eyes.

That’s where Vision Therapy (VT) can help. VT teaches you awareness of what your eyes are doing so you can develop a plan on how to deal with undesirable visual symptoms. VT teaches you how to coordinate your eyes to work better together. When your eyes are working better, they can communicate with the brain clear and precise information that will improve your cognitive ability. Vision Therapy is not just for kids.

If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, please contact our office and set up an appointment for a Vision Therapy Consultation from one of our Optometrists. We hope we can improve your quality of life through better vision.
