When it comes to vision therapy, there are some people in the general public that are unaware of what it entails. Vision Therapy is one of the most progressive medical programs for vision repairs and comfort improvement in the country. Individuals that partake in vision therapy are in good hands has doctors perform and supervise the procedures. There are a variety of exercises in which doctors have patients go through as well.
Pediatric Eye Care
Children should have their first eye exam around the age of six months. If the first exam finds that their eyes are healthy, they won’t need another appointment until they are between the age of two and three.
Although many schools offer annual eye exams, they are not complete visual exams and the results can be inaccurate. For this reason, you should schedule yearly examinations to ensure that your child’s eyes are healthy and that he or she can see clearly.

What Is Vision Therapy?

University of California Riverside increased batting averages of 30% after 24 sessions of Sports Vision training.
Is Sports Vision Therapy for amateur or professional athletes? Does it help athletes with perfect vision?
We assume that if we do not need glasses or contact lenses our vision is perfect. And while we may recognize the important role vision has in athletic success, we think "our vision is great". The reality is that we all have elements of our visual system that can use improvement. A person with 2020 may still need to improve in their ability to track a fast moving object or to improve spatial recognition. The other thing many people assume is that sports vision therapy is only for professional athletes. While it is true that professional athletes do a lot of vision therapy, there is much to gain for all levels of competitions. The ability to play better improves the athletes self confidence and acceptance, and shows the true potential of the athlete.
University of Cincinnati baseball team demonstrated a team wide improvement in all training metrics of at least 10% after six weeks of vision training. The batting average for the whole team went up 34 points from the previous season, which far exceeded the improvements of other N.C.A.A. teams.
How Long is the training?
Sports Vision therapy is like any other form of therapy, the amount of months needed is dependent on the progress of the patient. Older more motivated patients tend to reach the desired results quickly by being extra diligent to do the at-home exercises. The vision training will be built around your comprehensive developmental eye exam, which will ascertain what areas are in need of improvement.
On average, we recommend scheduling an appointment once every two years to ensure your eyes are remaining healthy. If you have been diagnosed with an eye condition, however, we recommend scheduling an appointment once a year depending on the severity.
During your appointment, we will review your patient history, visual acuity, perform preliminary tests, and evaluate your eyes’ overall health.

Computer Vision is a relatively new term within the optometry field and refers to eye problems associated with the prolonged use of computers and electronics that utilize a digital screen. Although it can be temporary, there are times when computer vision can strain the eyes to a degree that permanently affects your vision as well.
Pink or red eyes are a sign of ocular inflammation. There are many different diseases that can cause red eye, including conjunctivitis, blepharitis, foreign body, scratches, allergies, and much more. Eyes are red and sometimes itchy and painful. You may notice discharge and trouble with your vision.
It is important to have a thorough examination with a history to help determine what is causing your red eye.
We should be seen if you are having vision loss with your red eye. It is important to accurately diagnose and treat your red eye to avoid recurring problems, permanent damage and loss of vision. It is also important to come to an optometrist when you are having an eye injury or a possible sore on your eye. We also need to be seen if you have recently had eye surgery. Anytime that you feel you need to be seen by an optometrist, don’t hesitate to call!
