Vision therapy is a specialized
program designed specifically for each patient. The
goal is to develop and enhance visual skills such as
eye movements, eye tracking, eye-hand coordination,
and information processing. This is achieved through
various eye related games, exercises, and activities.
The first step is a consultation
with Dr. Shelley to determine if you or your child is
a vision therapy candidate. If so, a
complete vision examination
and Visual Information Processing evaluation will be
performed which will assess the visual system and discover
hidden deficiencies. A
typical vision therapy program consists of two sessions
per week, each lasting one hour. However, each patient
has different needs and we will accommodate the program
to meet those needs. When the patient reaches their
therapy goals the program is complete and minimal home
therapy is recommended to maintain the visual skills.
If you feel you or your child
may be a candidate for vision therapy, please contact
our office to schedule a consultation.
