State-of-the-Art Vision Therapy Services in Scarsdale

Your vision is precious, and if you or a loved one struggles with a visual disability, you are even more aware how it can impact your daily activities and independence. Genetic and eye health conditions like macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, low vision, and other conditions can cause reduced or limited vision, and there is little that can be done medically or surgically to correct the issues or restore vision in a significant way. However, with vision therapy, patients have a brighter outlook on their visual capacity than ever before. With a combination of state-of-the-art therapies, exercises, and technologically advanced equipment and aids, patients can improve their visual abilities and skills.

What is Orthoptic Vision Therapy & How Does It Work?

Orthoptic vision therapy is a series of exercises and therapies that are designed to improve binocular function, or to help the eyes learn to work together to process visual information. Orthoptic vision therapy is most often used by pediatric optometrists and ophthalmologists for children who have amblyopia or strabismus. Other conditions that orthoptic vision therapy may be able to treat successfully include binocular vision problems, focusing disorders, convergence insufficiency, and eye movement problems. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive, and painless treatment that can help to correct a patient's visual system over time.

What You Need to Know About Behavioral, Optometric Vision Therapy

Behavioral vision therapy involves addressing a variety of visual issues, including but not limited to: Visual Processing, Perception Therapy, Sensory Learning, and Syntonic Phototherapy.

Visual Processing & Perception Therapy

Therapy that focuses on visual processing and perception can assist patients in enhancing visual discrimination (the ability to visually see differences between objects), visual figure ground (the ability to separate an object from a background), and visual memory (the ability to retain visual information over a period of time.

Sensory Learning

Sensory integration therapy is often combined with visual therapies in order to produce more effective results. Sensory therapies involve using other senses, such as taste, smell, touch, and hearing to corroborate with visual integration.

Syntonic Phototherapy

Syntonic phototherapy, or light therapy, is an advanced type of visual therapy that involves using specific light frequencies through the eyes to treat a variety of visual dysfunctions.
