Vision Is More Than Just Sight

Vision is more than just reading letters on a chart—that’s visual acuity. While people often use the terms eyesight and vision interchangeably, vision refers to the interaction between the eyes and the brain. The visual system functions when the brain and the eyes work together as a team.

Children’s visual skills need to be learned and practiced. Without well-developed visual skills, your child might have a hard time learning, reading, and writing.

Your optometrist can work with you to create an individualized treatment plan for correcting your child’s unique vision conditions. You can get started on your treatment plan by booking an appointment for you or your child today.

What Vision Conditions Can Be Helped By Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy can be effective for conditions that aren’t treatable with glasses or contact lenses.

Optometry Vision Therapy

Strabismus (Crossed Eyes)

Strabismus (crossed eyes) is a muscle condition that most often affects children under the age of 6. When the eyes don’t align with one another, children may have blurry or double vision. They can also experience depth perception problems.

If left untreated, strabismus is not a condition that children outgrow. With regular comprehensive eye exams, strabismus can be detected early and will usually respond well to treatment.

If the brain and eyes aren’t working together properly, amblyopia (lazy eye) can occur. If the brain doesn’t recognize sight from one eye, it becomes more reliant on the stronger eye and the vision in the weaker eye gets continually worse.

Amblyopia might develop as a result of strabismus (crossed eyes) or if there is a large difference in prescription between the two eyes.

Behaviour in children that might indicate amblyopia includes squinting, head tilting, and shutting one eye.

Amblyopia is the most common cause of vision loss in kids. Bringing your child for regular comprehensive eye exams can help protect their sight well into the future.

What Exactly Is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is highly individualized, involving different activities and exercises that help retrain learned behaviours and improve vision.

While vision therapy is very helpful in correcting vision problems for kids, adults can also benefit from it. If your vision was never corrected as a child, you might be an adult with treatable vision issues.

It’s not too late to achieve better vision. Your optometrist can recommend an approach to help you get the vision you’ve always wanted, even if you’ve  been struggling with vision problems your whole life.
