Vision therapy can improve visual acuity and enhance visual skills, such as the ability to correctly perceive depth, focus and track objects. It is usually indicated when eye movement disorders, eye misalignment or binocular dysfunctions (when the eyes cannot work in sync or together) cause vision problems.
Vision therapy uses science- and evidence-backed orthoptic eye exercises such as orthoptics treatment aided by other strategies, such as the use of occlusion, training glasses and prisms. These exercises take advantage of the brain’s plasticity or its ability to develop new neural pathways when needed to sharpen, optimise and improve one’s vision despite alignment, binocular or eye movement problems.
Vision therapy is for adults and children. Paediatric vision therapy, in particular, shows great promise for treating vision problems in young children and adolescents. Book a comprehensive vision assessment with our vision therapy centre in Dubai to know more.
