About Vision Therapy

Vision therapy is a specialized form of optometric treatment that aims to improve various visual skills and abilities. It is a non-invasive and individualized approach to addressing vision problems that cannot be corrected with glasses or contact lenses alone. At Muir Diablo Occupational Medicine, we provide comprehensive vision therapy services to patients in Carlsbad, CA and the surrounding areas.

Who Can Benefit from Vision Therapy?

People of all ages can benefit from vision therapy. It is particularly helpful for individuals who experience difficulties with:

  • Reading and comprehension
  • Eye tracking and coordination
  • Binocular vision and depth perception
  • Eye teaming and focusing
  • Visual processing and perceptual skills
  • Amblyopia (lazy eye)
  • Strabismus (eye turn)
  • Visual problems associated with learning disabilities

Vision therapy is a highly effective treatment option for individuals with these conditions, as it targets the underlying visual skills and helps improve visual performance and comfort.

What to Expect During Vision Therapy?

When you visit Muir Diablo Occupational Medicine for vision therapy, our experienced optometrists will conduct a comprehensive vision evaluation to assess your specific visual needs. Based on the evaluation results, a personalized vision therapy program will be designed for you.

Vision therapy sessions typically involve a combination of in-office visits and home-based exercises. In-office sessions may include various visual activities, exercises, and the use of specialized equipment tailored to your unique requirements. Home-based exercises, on the other hand, play a crucial role in reinforcing the skills learned during in-office sessions.
