When you are told that you would benefit from vision therapy, you may be full of questions. Below is a list of common questions about vision therapy.
What is vision therapy?
Vision therapy involves a series of exercises to improve the connection between your eyes and brain.
How often do you have to train your eyes?
It is recommended that you train your eyes one to two times a week, depending on your specific needs. Each session should last between thirty and sixty minutes.
How long will it take for my eyes to get stronger?
Since each therapy plan is different and everyone’ eye needs are different, there is no telling how long it will take for your eyes to improve, though most see an improvement in just a few sessions.
It is important to remember that your eye muscles will not change but the neurological response time between your eyes and brain will.
Does vision therapy really work?
Vision therapy really does work. There have been many studies which have shown great results and a high rate of success, which is why it is being increasingly prescribed for both children and adults.
