Vision therapy is a doctor-supervised, non-surgical and customized program of visual activities designed to correct certain vision problems and/or improve visual skills.
Vision therapy is like physical therapy for the visual system, including the eyes and the parts of the brain that control vision.
Optometric Vision Therapy
Most vision therapy performed in the United States is prescribed and monitored by an optometrist. For this reason, it is also called optometric vision therapy.
Optometrists who specialize in vision therapy — especially those who also specialize in children’s vision and vision development — may call themselves pediatric optometrists, behavioral optometrists or developmental optometrists.
