When corrective lenses can’t cut it, book innovative vision therapy treatments with Metro Eye Care in Toronto, Ontario. Our optometrists provide individualized at-home treatment programs that improve non-refractive vision problems. Vision therapy helps to correct perceptual cognitive deficiencies and visual motor skills, improving overall vision in a variety of ways. Our optometrists are specially trained to evaluate, diagnose, and treat visual disorders in children and adults. They are committed to providing compassionate care that produces exceptional results.
Vision therapy helps individuals to learn and relearn specific vision skills. Throughout our development, we focus, look, and learn with our eyes. We rely on communication between our brains and our ocular lenses to provide visual information regarding our environments. For some, this development does not naturally occur, or it is compromised by an injury or eye disorder. Luckily, using innovative techniques and technologies, our optometrists help patients to recover the visual abilities that enable them to see, understand, and learn more effectively and comfortably.
Oftentimes, a visual disorder will be diagnosed in combination with a learning disorder or, a learning disorder may be suspected when a visual disorder is actually to blame for an individual falling behind. This happens because so much of the learning that we do is visually based –especially when it comes to the development of young children. During cognitive development, children are exceptional candidates for vision therapy. Not only are visual disorders easier to mitigate if they have a shorter manifestation period, but a child’s education and quality of life will benefit immensely from vision therapy. The earlier a child starts vision therapy, the less they will have to overcompensate for or suffer with their diagnosed disorder. Best of all, our optometrists have extensive experience working with children. Our eye doctors always try their best to make therapy fun and enjoyable for every patient, encouraging them to see differently every step of the way.
Vision therapy can produce significant improvements in a patient’s life. Three commonly diagnosed conditions that can be treated with vision therapy include Strabismus (crossed eyes), Amblyopia (lazy eye), and poor binocular coordination (the inability of the eyes to work together). Metro Eye Care’s at-home vision therapy regimes will help patients with these disorders to straighten their eye alignment and improve their ability to focus, so that both eyes may effectively work together.
While no level of improvement can be guaranteed, motivated patients can make the world of difference for themselves by continuously sticking to their customized visual exercise regimes. To keep you on track, our optometrists will offer their unyielding support to ensure that, at the end of every vision therapy session, patients feel confident that they have done all that they can to achieve their most effective vision.
Proactivity positively affects the level of improvement that a patient can hope to obtain once he or she has completed a course of vision therapy. It is no longer believed to be true that only children can benefit from vision therapy. However, the sooner that an eye issue is diagnosed, the more likely it is that the patient will experience the freedom of visual competency.
