The Vision Therapy Process
A developmental optometrist and vision therapist will tailor a vision therapy plan according to the severity of the convergence problem. The eye doctor and therapist will then guide you and monitor your progress to determine what changes or adaptations need to be made throughout your customized program.
Convergence insufficiency treatment exercises may use specialized equipment and tools such as prisms, lenses, and computerized technology, to stimulate the brain to better control the two eyes simultaneously.
Results depend on your active participation and compliance with the program, whether in-office or at home. Over time, the more you train your brain, the easier and more automated the exercises will become. Gains can be experienced from as little as a few weeks to six months.
We encourage you to schedule a meeting with the Vision Therapy Center At Family Eye Care Center of Atlanta at the first sign of convergence insufficiency in your child. Dr. Takeia Locke at Vision Therapy Center At Family Eye Care Center of Atlanta will be happy to help your child achieve the best opportunity to improve their reading and learning and improve their overall school performance.
We serve patients from Buckhead, Atlanta, Vinings, and Brookhaven, all throughout Georgia.
