Just because someone has 20/20 eyesight, does not mean they have great vision.
“Sight” is a physical process of focusing light within our eyes, whereas “vision” involves our ability to efficiently gather and understand what is seen. The brain is heavily involved in vision, and that is why vision therapy and rehabilitation can be the key to decreasing or eliminating vision symptoms that patients are having.
Someone can have 20/20 vision, but still struggle due to deficits with the following visual skills:
Binocularity (the ability to use the eyes together for single vision and depth perception)
Accommodation (the ability to maintain clarity while adjusting from distance vision to near vision)
Oculomotor Control (the ability to move the eyes accurately and quickly to follow a target or move between two targets)
Visual Processing (the ability to make visual information meaningful for understanding)
Visual-Motor Integration (the ability to use visual information to guide motor movement)
Visual Memory (the ability to remember information presented visually)
These skills can all be improved through our vision therapy and neuro-optometric rehabilitation treatment programs. Sessions occur once or twice a week and are 45 minutes in duration. The sessions are one-on-one so that our patients can be appropriately challenged and engaged for success. Patients are provided with home activities to do five to ten minutes a day on the days the patient isn’t in active treatment. Most programs take three to twelve months to complete.
