Introducing Vision Therapy to Parents

We learn to understand what we see in a series of predictable developmental steps. Unlike vision development, children learn to walk through imitating others. Vision development is an entirely individual experience which does not allow comparing what one child sees to that which another child sees.

Double vision, blurred objects, and becoming very tired while reading seem normal to children and many vision problems go undetected simply because the child doesn’t know any different. Even if a child is be able to see 20/20, there still may be an underlying visual problem. It is important to have yearly eye exams so that any vision problems are caught early and therapy can be started before eye damage occurs.

Who is Vision Therapy for?

Your Fulton Vision Development Optometrists can help with lazy eye (amblyopia), eye turns (strabismus), traumatic brain injury (concussion, whiplash) and special needs populations. Research has shown that 20% of children have a vision issue that affects their learning.

Developmental Guide

1st Eye Exam: around 6-12 months. (To detect defects and provide treatment if needed).

2nd Eye Exam: around 2.5-3 years. (To ensure the child's eyes are developing properly).

3rd Eye Exam: before starting their first year of school. (To test their visual readiness and ability for learning).

After the 3rd Eye Exam children and adults should be seen yearly.

Children do show signs of learning-related vision problems in their behavior which may or may not be picked up from interaction with the parent or teacher. Some children avoid vision-related tasks because of the extraneous effort that is put on their visual system, which may cause them to exhibit symptoms of a child who has AD(H)D.

Vision therapy can not cure a learning disorder, but it will provide a foundation of visual abilities to which a learning team can build upon.

The RightEye eye-tracking system reveals how your child sees and precisely measures and records eye movements, delivering objective, graphical results in a report with an animation that can show a teacher, parent, or individual their reading skills. This makes it easy for doctors, patients, their families and teachers to understand the dysfunction and next steps.

The result? Improved, more efficient vision!
