Birmingham Vision Care & Vision Development Center
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 tracking, focusing skills, eye-hand coordination, convergence, visual memory skills and other vision problems, enhancing visual comfort, performance and ultimately, quality of life.
Binocular Vision Dysfunction
Binocular Vision Dysfunction is a condition where the eyes are unable to align properly. This causes the sufferer to correct or over compensate for this misalignment creating strain on the muscles in the eye because he or she is constantly trying to re-align the eyes to eliminate blurriness and double-vision.
What changes have you seen since beginning vision therapy? Miles, through vision therapy, has been able to increase his comprehension regarding the subjects he is studying in 7th grade.

As part of our comprehensive eye exam, Birmingham Vision Care examines every patient’s need for prism. Prism is helpful for some patients who have difficulty with eye alignment or binocular vision dysfunction.
Prism lenses help the eyes to work together. In some patients, one or both eyes may tend to pull up, down, to the left, or to the right. The use of prism in the lenses helps the brain to think the eyes are working together by shifting the image only slightly up, down, left, or right.
