Proper visual skills are more than just being able to read the bottom line on the eye chart. Eyes must work together as a team and make quick accurate movements for a person to understand the world around them. This is more important during childhood where the foundations of learning are set. The crucial skills learned in academics will set the path a child takes for a career. The five key areas of function addressed by Optometric Vision Therapy are visual motor guidance, eye tracking (ocular motility), eye focusing (near and far accommodation), eye alignment (binocular convergence and divergence), and visual information processing (including visual memory and visualization).

At Eyecare Plus we utilize different techniques depending on a patient’s condition. We then personalize a treatment plan that is conducted in our office and supplemented with at home activities to provide rapid resolution of their condition.
Many of the exercises we implement focus on improving the pathway from the eye to the brain. A few of them include:
• Anaglyphic (3-D) filters
• Computerized VTS4 3-D game system
• Visual processing algorithm
