Vision therapy is a type of training used to improve the coordination and focusing ability of the eyes and is an effective non-surgical treatment for many common visual problems such as lazy eye, crossed eyes, double
vision, convergence insufficiency, accommodative or focusing issues, and in some cases of reading and learning difficulties.
In the case of learning difficulties, vision therapy is specifically directed toward resolving visual problems which interfere with reading, learning and educational instruction. Some symptoms of binocular vision disorders
include: squinting, rubbing eyes, holding things very close, poor reading comprehension, eyes feeling tired, short attention span, headaches with near work, reversing letters, and trouble remembering what was read.
