Vision therapy is a fun and safe way of strengthening the connection from our brain to our eyes and how that can effect our learning ability.
Vision therapy is used to:
Treat existing visual problems such as amblyopia (lazy eye), eye alignment problems, eye coordination problems, poorly sustained near focus, inadequate eye-hand coordination and immature perceptual development
Enhance the efficiency and comfort of visual function
Help prevent some visual problems
Vision therapy is a fun supervised individual program designed to improve; spatial awareness; body awareness; visual-motor and visual perception deficiencies; the brains ability to control eye alignment, eye movements, focusing ability and eye co-ordination; and, the way the brain uses the eyes to receive information effectively, comprehend it quickly and react appropriately
This powerful technology allows us to create immersive therapeutic tools that appear in life size 3D, virtual environment without the boundaries we are accustomed to with TV or computer screens. Both adults and children will enjoy the Vivid Vision experience.
Babies are born with primitive reflexes e.g. sucking reflex and grasp reflex. These reflexes are normally supressed after the first year of life. If they are retained, this can affect neurological development and learning.
Brain hemispheric disconnection is an imbalance between the right and left brain hemispheres. This imbalance can significantly affect learning is believed to be a strong link to dyslexia.
Behavioural Optometry involves an understanding of VISION and how it is different from EYESIGHT. EYESIGHT simply involves seeing an eyechart on the wall, while Behavioural Optometry is more interested in VISION.
Although the majority of Behavioural Optometrists' patients are children, Behavioural Optometry may be suitable for patients of any age.
