Is The Schools Vision Screening Enough?
Vision is a complex process that uses many different processes. A school vision screening and eye exams that are not developmental, assess some aspects of vision but miss others such as eye tracking, eye focusing, and eye teaming.
What is Vision Therapy?
We are all familiar with vision issues that originate from problems with the eye, these are usually fixed with glasses or contacts. There are many vision related issues that effect our child’s performance in the classroom and in life, that are due to issues with the eyes interaction with the brain. Vision Therapy is like physical therapy, where the therapist works with the patient at their pace to retrain the brain and eyes to work together.
What Does Vision Therapy Treat?
- Convergence Insufficiency-Eyes drifting causing double vision
- Accommodative Issues-Focusing issues
- Eye Tracking-Eye movement and vision
- Binocular Vision Issues-Eyes working together
- Strabismus-Esotropia and Exotropia/Eye allignment
- Amblyopia-Lazy eye
Taking Your Sports Performance To The Next Level With Sports Vision Training
20/20 eye sight and good hand eye coordination is not enough to maintain peak performance for sports. We tend to underestimate the complexity and challenge posed to our visual system when we try to hit a ball moving at 65-80 miles per hour. Sports Vision Training uses the principals of vision therapy to teach skills such as:
- Better hand eye coordination
- Improved depth perception and estimation
- Faster reaction times
- Vision and balance
- Precise eye movement and tracking
- and more!
Is Your Child Achieving Their Best In School?
A child with vision issues will find it difficult to concentrate for long periods of time, show signs of low hyperactivity such as fidgeting and fatigue after school work. If a child cannot see well, they cannot read for extended periods of time, they may have difficulty seeing the board at school, or even concentrating on the computer may be wearing them out.
Because of the importance of visual learning it is recommended that all children receive yearly eye exams if they have glasses or contacts or every other year if they do not.
