Vision Development Center (located in the Birmingham Vision Care facility) specializes in helping people to achieve the best possible vision through vision therapy. Vision therapy can help people of all ages overcome many visual challenges and has proven to be a highly successful approach for resolving problems which interfere with reading and learning. Vision therapy can also be used to treat and improve eye movement, focusing skills, eye-hand coordination, convergence, visual memory skills and other vision problems, enhancing visual comfort, performance and ultimately, quality of life. Vision therapy can also help improve vision for athletes, aid in visual recovery from concussion or other brain injury, and even improve the quality of life for people with conditions like ADHD, ADD, Autism, Down’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and Dyslexia. Take a minute to answer the questions on our Exam Check List. If you answer “yes” to several of the questions, an eye exam in our Bloomfield Township facility is recommended.
What is Vision Therapy?
Vision therapy is a sequence of therapeutic procedures that develop efficient visual skills and visual processing. An integral part of vision therapy is an individually prescribed program monitored by a doctor using lenses, filters, occluders, specialized instruments and computer programs.Through vision therapy, patients learn to process and interpret visual information while learning to use their visual abilities in a new way.
Who Benefits from Vision Therapy?
Vision therapy has made a profound difference in the lives of people of all ages. Vision is our dominant sense and primary source for gathering information in learning. 80 percent of what we learn is through our eyes. Vision and/or visual perceptual difficulties can have a great effect on how we read, learn and achieve academically.
