Vision Therapy in Galesburg

There is much more to eyesight than seeing 20/20. For many people, reading and eye-hand coordination tasks can be very difficult. The act of sight not only includes ones eyes, but it also includes the neurological activity that processes the visual information. Vision therapy is a highly effective, non-surgical treatment used to retrain the way the eyes and the brain work together. It can be an effective treatment for many common visual problems such as amblyopia, lazy eye, crossed eyes or strabismus, double vision, eyestrain and blurred vision when reading, eye hand coordination problems, and vision related learning disabilities.

What is Vision Therapy?

The goal of Vision Therapy is to:

  • Help patients develop or improve fundamental visual skills and abilities
  • Improve visual comfort, ease, and efficiency
  • Change how a patient processes or interprets visual information

Vision Therapy uses therapeutic lenses, prisms, filters, occluders, electronic targets with timing mechanisms, balance boards/swings, and so much more to treat all visual processing disorders.  After an initial consultation one of our doctors will design a treatment plan tailored to meet and exceed each individual’s needs. Schedule an appointment with an experienced eye care provider at our Galesburg optometrist office and give your vision the level of care and attention it deserves.
