What conditions can vision therapy treat? 

There are a variety of conditions that can be treated with vision therapy, including:

Amblyopia (lazy eye)

Amblyopia, also known as “lazy eye,” is a common vision disorder that affects both children and adults. It occurs when one eye does not develop proper visual acuity during childhood, which can cause the brain to rely more on the “stronger” eye and ignore the weaker one. Vision therapy can be used to strengthen the weaker eye and improve binocular vision.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects behavior, attention, and focus. Studies reveal that many individuals with ADHD also experience vision-related problems, such as difficulties with eye focusing, eye tracking, and eye teaming. These problems can make it hard to concentrate and process information, leading to academic struggles and performance issues. Vision therapy is a non-invasive and clinically proven treatment option for vision-related problems in individuals with ADHD.

Autism spectrum disorder

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects communication, social interaction, and behavior. What many people don’t realize is that ASD can also cause vision problems, such as poor eye contact, sensitivity to light, and difficulty tracking moving objects. Vision therapy is an effective treatment option that can help alleviate some of the vision problems faced by those with ASD.

Convergence insufficiency

Convergence insufficiency is a common eye disorder that occurs when a person’s eyes cannot work together comfortably when focusing on nearby objects, like reading or computer work. The condition can lead to eyestrain, double vision, headaches, blurred vision, and difficulty concentrating. Research has shown that vision therapy is a highly effective treatment option for convergence insufficiency, often resulting in significant improvement in symptoms.

Strabismus (crossed eyes)

Strabismus, also known as “crossed eyes,” is a condition where the eyes do not align properly. It can cause double vision, difficulties with depth perception, and poor eye teaming, along with other symptoms. Strabismus can be effectively treated with vision therapy, which involves a series of eye exercises and activities that help to retrain the visual system and align the eyes better.

Traumatic/acquired brain injury

A traumatic brain injury occurs when an external force, such as a blow or jolt to the head, causes damage to the brain. Acquired brain injuries occur when a sudden vascular issue or condition such as a stroke or a tumor affects the brain. These injuries can cause visual issues with eye alignment, tracking, and focusing. A vision therapy program can be an effective approach to addressing some of the visual issues caused by a brain injury.

Sensory processing

Sensory processing is the brain’s ability to receive, interpret, and respond to sensory information in our environment. Sensory processing difficulties can impact an individual’s ability to function in everyday life and can lead to a variety of symptoms, including visual processing issues such as trouble with eye tracking, teaming, and depth perception. Vision therapy is a highly effective treatment option for sensory processing difficulties related to visual function.

Dizziness / vestibular

Dizziness is a common symptom that is typically related to problems in the inner ear. Vestibular dysfunction, which affects the balance and spatial orientation systems, often leads to dizziness, vertigo, and other visual processing issues. Vision therapy can help with some of these visual problems caused by vestibular dysfunction.
