Vision Therapy Vancouver

What is Vision Therapy

With the introduction of computers and virtual screens into our lives, our eyes have also been deformed. Along with these disorders, the question of what is vision therapy is often asked.

Vision therapy can be defined as a personalized treatment prescribed to develop, improve or intensify certain visual skills, preventing the normalization of a visual process.

The vision therapist is tasked with performing special visual exercises to develop changing visual abilities. All doctors in the vision therapy Vancouver branch are trained professionals who are experts in their fields.

Vision therapy can be used for a variety of vision conditions. Effective therapy requires the development of visual abilities and their integration with other systems so that they become automatic and allow the individual to reach their full potential. The goal of a prescribed visual therapy program is to achieve expected visual results, alleviate the signs and symptoms of problems, understand the patient’s needs, and improve their quality of life. This is done by an expert ophthalmologist.

Visual Therapy for Learning Disabilities

Regarding difficulties in learning, it is known that a large part of them is due to poor development of visual skills. All of these can be resolved with the help of optometrists.

The main visual skills we are talking about are:

We can define eye mobility as the ability to focus the eyes on a point of interest, follow moving objects, and focus on objects precisely and effectively. They are especially important when reading and playing sports.

  • Enfoque: The ability to focus on distant and near objects and change that view quickly and accurately.
  • Binocular Vision: The ability of the two eyes to work together correctly. When we look at an object, both eyes must focus on the same point and a single common image must be created with the information from both eyes. This process is essential for developing so-called depth perception.
  • Depth Perception: This allows us to determine the distance between objects and see them in three dimensions.
  • Visual Memory: The ability to form and store mental images for future use or to create new images.
  • Visual Discrimination: The ability to recognize and distinguish a familiar image from a sentence.

These treatments, performed on the optometry branch, are successfully applied in the optometry clinic.

Vision therapy for children is also applied to children who have the same problems. These eye problems should be treated early in children. Otherwise, the eye problem may progress further. Especially school-age children should talk to an eye specialist and have their eyes checked.

Our vision therapy clinic, located in Vancouver BC, offers you and your children successful eye treatments. In this way, it is possible to have much healthier eyes.

Difference Between Optometrist and Ophthalmologist

People who work as optometrists do a detailed examination of patients’ eyes and try to see what the problems are. This is generally an analysis and inspection process. Ophthalmologists, on the other hand, are the people who perform the necessary interventions after these examinations. These may be surgical or other interventions.
