Insurance & Financing

Will insurance cover this type of treatment?

Visual perceptual therapy for learning issues or educational problems is not covered under health plans.

Vision Therapy Q&A With Our Doctors

What is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is an individualized treatment plan prescribed by a Doctor of Optometry. It is used to treat eye conditions, such as strabismus (eye turn) or amblyopia (“lazy eye”). Through Vision Therapy, a Doctor of Optometry also teaches, improves and/or reinforces important visual skills, such as eye tracking, eye focusing and eye teaming abilities. Without these visual skills, simple tasks like reading or copying notes from the board become difficult. Skipping words or lines while reading, using a finger while reading, blurry near vision, double vision, eyestrain and/or eye fatigue are also common symptoms.

How do I know Vision Therapy is right for my child?

If your child displays symptoms of strabismus (eye turn), amblyopia (“lazy eye”), skipping words or lines while reading, using a finger while reading, blurry near vision, double vision, eyestrain and/or eye fatigue, it is suggested your child has a complete eye exam from a Doctor of Optometry. If symptoms persist or the Doctor of Optometry recommends Vision Therapy, then a Vision Therapy assessment is the next step. The doctor will perform a thorough one-on-one assessment and will determine which conditions are present, whether Vision Therapy is suitable, the type of eye exercises required and the number of sessions needed.

Vision Development in Children

The development of vision starts with healthy eyes and good eyesight. However, that is not all we need to see comfortably, accurately, and efficiently. We need to understand what and where we are seeing things. During infancy and time as a toddler, we learn to use our vision to explore colors, shapes, objects, people and develop depth perception and coordination. Learn more about vision development here.
