What is Vision Therapy?
Vision therapy is akin to physical therapy for the eyes. It treats vision problems where the eyes are not working together properly causing blurring, doubling vision. Symptoms include headaches, eye fatigue, and inattention with vision related tasks. It can also help people who have had head trauma or neurological problems that have affected vision or people who have wandering, crossed, or lazy eyes.
