Does Your Child...
  • Read below grade level?
  • Have a poor attention span?
  • Skip words or lines with reading?
  • Confuse the letters b, d, p, and q?

If your child is reading below grade level, has difficulties maintaining attention, or is not performing to their potential at school, he or she may have an undetected vision problem.

Many children struggle with undetected vision problems that hinder them from reaching their full potential.

Don’t let visual impairments prevent your child from accomplishing their goals.

What Is Vision Therapy?

Vision Therapy is a customized treatment program that trains our eyes and brain to work together. It develops and enhances fundamental visual skills and abilities, such as eye tracking, eye teaming, convergence, focusing, and visual processing skills.

It is performed under optometrist supervision and is individualized to fit the specific needs of each unique patient.

Vision therapy consists of in-office appointments and at-home exercises.


Benefits of Vision Therapy

  • Non-Invasive

    Vision therapy doesn’t involve medication, surgery, or invasive procedures. Instead, it corrects eye problems naturally.

  • Great for children and adults

    Your brain is capable of forming new neural pathways throughout your entire life, so vision therapy can be effective at any age.

  • Easy to do

    Instructions are easy to follow. You or your child will learn them during in-office sessions and practice the exercises at home.

  • Customized treatment

    Following the consultation and eye exam, our eye care professionals will custom design a vision therapy program to suit your specific needs.


Should Your Child Have Vision Therapy?

Below is a list of behaviors that may indicate a vision problem:

  • Squints, tilts head or covers one eye to see better. 
  • Reports blurry or double vision
  • Has difficulty in school even if they understand the subject matter
  • Has trouble focusing or paying attention
  • Avoids activities that require visual skills, such as reading, drawing, or puzzles

It is not uncommon for academic or behavioral problems to be caused by vision difficulties. Vision therapy not only helps your child see better, but can also improve learning, behavior and self-confidence. 

Contact Advanced EyeCare in Sanford to find out whether your child's lagging visual skills may be getting in the way of their learning.


Vision Therapy FAQs

How long does it take for vision therapy to work?

Since every patient's condition and program is unique, some may see improvement in just a couple of weeks, while others may notice progress after several months.

Can vision therapy improve my child’s academic performance?

Often, poor performance in school can mask an undiagnosed vision or eye problem. In these cases, vision therapy can transform your child’s academic performance and attitude toward school. Since 80% of learning is visual, any improvement in visual skills is likely to positively impact school performance.

Does vision therapy work?

Yes. Scientific studies confirm the effectiveness of vision therapy in treating convergence insufficiency, amblyopia, and other eye conditions. A study published in the Archives of Ophthalmology and funded by the National Eye Institute (NEI) showed that 75% of patients who attended weekly in-office sessions and performed daily exercises at home noticed marked improvement in convergence symptoms.

Some family members recommended Advanced EyeCare recently and my husband and I are so pleased with o... ur switch. Dr. Christy and her team did a marvelous job assessing my vision and providing me with a more accurate contact lens Rx. I returned today for a follow-up and had a marvelous tech, "Sam", who had the best personality. He did a great job explaining everything, was attentive and had a good sense of humor. I could tell how serious he took his job. Keep up the great work! Thank you Advanced EyeCare Michelle Medina
