Treating Vision Therapy
Behavioral Optometrists specialize in treating those with visual problems through vision therapy exercises. Treatment consists of 30-45 minute in-office sessions combined with at home work to help patients develop and improve visual skill and abilities so they can better process visual information. Vision therapy is designed to improve the brain’s ability to control eye alignment, eye teaming, eye focusing, eye movements and visual processing.
