Vision Therapy

Optometric vision therapy is used to help children and adults develop efficient visual skills.

Why vision therapy?

As a child grows, they develop visual abilities from experience and play

This includes learning to focus their eyes accurately, to move both eyes as a team, to coordinate hand-eye movements and to understand and remember what their eyes see. If these visual skills are underdeveloped or affected by injury, it can affect reading, writing, learning, and other activities requiring efficient vision such as sport. Poor visual skills can be improved with appropriate training, through activities that help an individual learn and maintain more efficient eye movement skills.


Most common reasons
for vision therapy

Problems of focusing (accommodation) and eye teaming (convergence), affecting the ability to read and write comfortably and clearly, with good concentration and comprehension.

Poor eye movement skills (tracking and saccades), affecting reading fluency and accuracy.

Turned eye (squint, strabismus) and lazy eye (amblyopia).

Delays in the development of visual information processing skills (visual perception), affecting the ability to learn to read and write.

Poor eye-hand skills affecting writing, drawing, and craftwork, as well as timing and judgement in sporting activities.

Visual effects of acquired brain injuries.

Vision therapy is prescribed following a comprehensive assessment of visual abilities

This assessment is done by one of our paediatric and behavioural optometrists. The therapy is individually programmed for the specific needs of each patient and involves a series of exercises and activities to develop new improved visual skills.
