Visual therapy is a series of activities undertaken to improve either poorly developed visual, visual motor or visual perceptual skills, or procedures to further enhance the present visual skills to a higher level of efficiency and/or stamina.
Visual therapy may be used in the treatment of such conditions as:
- Eye turn (strabismus)
- Lazy eye (amblyopia)
- Poor eye movement or eye focussing skills (fine visual motor therapy)
- In traumatic brain injury (accident and stroke)
- Enhance specific visual abilities. (ie. required in a sport)
- Developmental and visual perceptual deficits
