Vision Therapy

Vision Therapy may help your child improve developmental visual skills and achieve their maximum potential to live a happier, healthier life.

Does your child take hours to do homework that should take 20 minutes? Did your child once love reading now can’t stand to read more than two pages? Through Behavioral Optometry and an individualized Program of Care, the team at Fox Vision Development Center provides a holistic, integrated approach to treating your child’s vision system.

What is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is designed to help patients develop or improve fundamental visual skills and abilities. Behavioral or Developmental Optometry is the health care field that deals with the prevention and remediation of functional vision problems. We look beyond 20/20 eyesight as being the definition of good vision. We have learned that many visual skills, such as eye teaming, eye focusing, tracking, and visual perception, are necessary for optimum visual functioning. Deficiencies in these areas can cause many symptoms such as blurred near vision, headache, fatigue, and double vision. Behavioral Optometrists utilize glasses, contact lenses, and vision therapy to prevent and treat these vision problems; improve visual comfort, ease, and efficiency; and change how a patient processes or interprets visual information.
