How does Vision Therapy work?

Vision Therapy is…..

  • A progressive program of care to help improve developmental or functional visual skills.
  • Vision therapy is performed under direct supervision of a doctor.
  • A program of care is individualized and designed to fit the visual needs of each patient.
  • Vision therapy is conducted in the office once a week. Sessions are 45 minutes to an hour.
  • At home, vision therapy exercises are completed between office visits.

Vision Therapy is a life-changing experience and a gift that last a lifetime! 

Start off the New Year by scheduling a comprehensive visual evaluation.  It is the first step at identifying a learning related visual issue.  Please let us know if you have any questions.  Our office phone number is (518) 374-8001.  We look forward to hearing from you!  Please like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!
