Help Improve Your Vision with Customized Vision Therapy
Taking care of our eyes is crucial. Your eyes are one of the most important organs in your body. They enable you to see the world around you and some signs of illnesses or diseases can be detected in the eye before symptoms manifest. It’s easy to ignore your eyes, but, like any other part of your body, your eyes might need special care to function at your best. One of the ways to take care of your vision is with vision therapy. We at 4Sight iCare in Plainfield, IL, are here to help.
Benefits of Vision Therapy
Vision therapy has several benefits that can improve your quality of life. It can improve your visual acuity, making it easier to drive, see objects at different distances, and make it easier to read. Vision training can also enhance your ability to coordinate your eyes and follow moving objects.
Types of Vision Therapy
There are different types of vision therapy available in optometry, depending on the type of vision problem you have. For instance, binocular vision therapy is designed to help people who have problems with eye coordination and binocular vision, such as strabismus or lazy eye. Accommodative vision therapy is designed to help people who have problems with focusing, while oculomotor vision therapy helps those who have difficulty with eye tracking.
Our Plainfield, IL, optometrist can determine which issue affects you most and recommend the right vision training method for your needs.
Vision Therapy Techniques
Vision therapy techniques might include computer-based exercise, such as interactive visual games, eye patches, prisms, vision training with lenses or filters, visual-motor integration activities, and vision therapy games, such as puzzles, knitting, origami, and more. Such visual-motor integration activities might include doing puzzles or drawing. Vision therapy games are designed to engage the eyes and the brain.
The Vision Therapy Process
The vision therapy process might involve an eye exam and evaluation to help determine the specific vision problem you have. Our eye doctor can then create a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs and schedule regular vision therapy sessions to monitor your progress. Our optometrist will then regularly reassess your needs to determine the effectiveness of the therapy.
