What is Visual Therapy?

Optometric visual therapy is a series of programmed 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.
