Do You Need Vision Therapy With a Trusted Sammamish Optometrist?
Vision therapy is a type of specialized therapy offered by your local Sammamish optometrist, Dr. Moscovitz at NewVision Eyecare. When Dr. Moscovitz prescribes vision therapy, it's usually because there's a problem with the eyes or with the eye/brain connection. Vision therapy can help with a number of common issues, including:
- Lazy eye
- Crossed eyes
- Double vision
- Certain learning disabilities (when combined with other types of therapy)
How Does Vision Therapy Work?
Vision therapy is individual to the patient. The eye doctor will perform a complete eye exam, along with any necessary specialized tests, to determine the right treatment plan for you. Therapy often includes vision "exercises" that can help strengthen the eyes. The exercises are done directly under Dr. Moscovitz's supervision to make sure that they're done safely and correctly.
Vision therapy can often include:
- The use of corrective, prism, or therapeutic lenses
- Training in hitting electronic targets with your eyes
- Use of special computer programs that retrain the eyes
- Use of a balance board to help with eye tracking and eye teaming
Other special therapy devices and care may also be used to give you the optimal results.
Vision therapy sessions are usually scheduled 1-2 times weekly and take only 30-60 minutes in the NewVision Eyecare office. In some cases, Dr. Moscovitz may also prescribe special exercises to do at home, too. Vision therapy can be helpful in many ways, including:
- Improved basic visual ability
- Increased eye comfort
- Improved ability to process visual information
Vision therapy can help you make a huge change in your life. Many patients who suffer from problems like lazy eye may have always thought that it's too late to get help, but that's a misconception. Even if you're an adult with an untreated lazy eye, vision therapy may be the solution that you've been looking for. Vision therapy can be helpful for patients of any age, so don't hesitate to request a consultation with Dr. Moscovitz to learn more about it.
