Improve the Connection Between the Brain & Eyes

When you think about your vision, you may think about 20/20 vision and how well you can see the eye chart at the optometrist’s office. What you’re thinking about is your visual acuity. While visual acuity is important, vision is actually quite a bit more complicated than this.

To put it simply, vision encompasses all interactions between the eyes and the brain. This connection is essential for allowing you to experience, perceive, and interact with the world around you.

Occasionally, you may need help improving this connection. At Stanislaus Optometric Center, Inc., our experienced, compassionate team is trained in providing high-quality vision therapy to help patients of all ages. We use a combination of supervised in-office exercises to improve vital visual skills that make playing sports, reading, writing, and learning easier.

What Is Vision Therapy?

Think of vision therapy like physical therapy for your eyes. It’s a non-surgical, completely customizable, science-based program designed by a trained optometrist. It’s intended to retrain learned aspects of vision, improve visual comfort, and change how a patient processes visual information.

Vision therapy is not merely a list of tools and techniques. It depends entirely on the patient’s and team’s commitment and engagement in the process.

Whether vision therapy is for yourself or your child, our team works closely with you to develop a personalized plan with clear goals based on your unique needs. Your plan may involve a combination of supervised in-office exercises like training glasses, prisms, filters, patches, or electronic targets to improve vision.

Vision Therapy for Children

Visual skills are essential for school-aged children. They make learning, playing, and socializing possible. If any of these skills are underdeveloped, your child will have to work harder to learn at the same pace as their peers.

Students who struggle with undiagnosed and uncorrected vision problems may experience headaches, eye strain, and fatigue. They may become frustrated or angry with learning, and they may comprehend less than their peers.

Vision therapy can help prevent or correct these vision-related learning problems. Our ultimate goal is to ensure your child isn’t struggling with an uncorrected vision problem.

At Stanislaus Optometric Center, Inc., we’ve successfully used vision therapy to treat vision problems like:

  • Amblyopia (lazy eye): The lack of or poor development of vision in one or both eyes. It’s often associated with crossed eyes, amblyopia usually develops before age 6 and can’t be corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses.
  • Strabismus (crossed eyes): A condition that causes the eyes to look in different directions. It usually occurs in children who have poor eye muscle control or are very farsighted. Strabismus usually occurs in really young children, generally by the age of 3.
  • Eye movement disorders: Several conditions can cause a problem with the ocular muscles. They’re sometimes present at birth, but can develop over time or be associated with injuries.
  • Other problems: Vision therapy may be effective at treating vision problems related to developmental disabilities or traumatic brain injuries.
