Welcome to Wildwood Vision Specialists LLC, where we believe in enhancing your life through better vision. Today, we’re diving into a topic that’s close to our hearts: vision therapy. Whether you’ve heard this term before or it’s completely new to you, this post is designed to shed light on what vision therapy is, its benefits, and how it might be the key to unlocking a clearer, more vibrant world for you or your loved ones.
What is Vision Therapy?
Vision therapy, often likened to physical therapy for the eyes and brain, is a customized program of visual activities. It’s designed to correct certain vision problems and/or improve visual skills. Think of it as a gym workout for your eyes, but instead of lifting weights, you’re strengthening your eye-brain connection.
Here’s what it involves:
- Individualized Programs: Each regimen is tailored to the specific needs of the patient.
- Supervised by Specialists: Our trained vision therapists guide you through each step.
- Variety of Tools Used: From specialized lenses to computerized systems, the therapy uses several tools to enhance effectiveness.
Benefits of Vision Therapy
The impact of vision therapy can be profound. Here are a few benefits our patients have experienced:
- Improved Reading and Learning: Many children and adults find that vision therapy helps with reading fluency and comprehension.
- Enhanced Sports Performance: Athletes report better hand-eye coordination and spatial awareness.
- Relief from Eye Strain: Those who work long hours on computers often find relief from eye strain and headaches.

- Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)
