Vision Therapy for Stroke

Welcome to SIGHT Multispecialty Center, your trusted partner in eye care located in Farmington, Connecticut. We are dedicated to providing holistic and specialized eye care services to our community. One of our key specialties is vision therapy for stroke patients, which has helped many patients regain their vision and quality of life.

What is vision therapy? 

Vision therapy is a non-surgical, personalized treatment program designed to improve and strengthen visual skills, enhance eye coordination, and alleviate a range of vision issues after a stroke. It is often described as “physical therapy” for the visual system, which includes the eyes and the parts of the brain that control vision. 

How can a stroke affect vision? 

A stroke can severely impact vision, leading to partial or total loss of sight, double vision, visual field loss, or difficulties with eye movements. These vision problems can significantly affect your daily life, independence, and overall quality of life. 

Our approach to vision therapy for stroke patients 

At SIGHT Multispecialty Center, we understand that each stroke patient’s experience is unique. That is why we tailor our vision therapy program to meet the specific needs and goals of each patient. 

Our team of experienced optometrists and therapists will conduct a comprehensive eye exam and functional vision assessment to diagnose any vision issues caused by a stroke. Based on these findings, we will develop a customized vision therapy program to address your specific vision challenges. 

These therapy sessions might include eye exercises, therapeutic lenses, prisms, filters, computer-based training, and other innovative techniques aimed at retraining the brain to process visual information more effectively.
