At Child & Family Eye Care, we take a comprehensive approach to vision care. In addition to the standard eye exam, we conduct a holistic assessment of the entire visual system through a functional vision exam. This exam evaluates the developmental maturity, strength, and endurance of the visual system to ensure optimal performance during daily visual tasks.
Upon identifying any areas of weakness within the visual system that may impact reading and learning, we design a personalized vision therapy program. This program consists of customized eye exercises that aim to enhance visual functions and retrain the brain to accurately interpret visual input.
Reach out to Child & Family Eye Care today to schedule a functional eye exam or to discuss any concerns you have regarding your child’s vision. We are dedicated to finding the most effective solutions for their visual problems.
Improve your child’s confidence levels with vision therapy!
Vision therapy is a non-surgical treatment program often likened to physical therapy, focusing on the eyes and brain. It utilizes a combination of exercises, lenses, specialized instruments, and occlusions to improve visual function.
Each vision therapy program is tailored to meet individual needs and has the potential to bring about substantial and long-lasting improvements within a relatively short timeframe. To gain further insights, get in touch with us today and explore how we can assist your child in enhancing their performance both academically and in sports.
When a child is informed that they have ’20/20 sight’, it means they can clearly read the letters on a chart from a distance of 20 feet. However, simply excelling at reading these chart letters does not guarantee the necessary visual skills for effective reading, writing, and learning. These skills are crucial for optimal performance in school and sports.
It’s important to note that standard school screenings and even some regular eye exams primarily assess visual acuity (sight) and often overlook the essential vision skills required for activities like sports, extensive computer use, reading, and learning. Additionally, it is possible to have poor visual skills without requiring glasses. Therefore, a comprehensive functional vision exam is necessary to evaluate a child’s visual skills accurately. If poor visual skills are identified, a personalized vision therapy program will be designed to help the child succeed and reach their full potential.
The development of visual skills can greatly enhance a child’s learning abilities and academic performance. Vision therapy, in particular, can play a vital role in preparing a child for higher education. By achieving greater success through vision therapy, children often experience an increase in self-esteem and gain greater confidence in their abilities. This newfound confidence naturally extends to other areas of their life, positively influencing their overall quality of life and accomplishments.
The effectiveness of the program is contingent upon the child’s active participation and adherence to the prescribed regimen. With consistent engagement, the exercises gradually become easier and more ingrained in their routine. Positive outcomes can be observed within a matter of weeks to approximately six months, as progress accumulates over time.
