What is Vision Therapy?

Contact lenses and glasses can't address all vision challenges. At Advanced Vision & Achievement Center in Phoenix, AZ, expert optometrists Dr. Neha Amin LaCorte and Dr. Mary Hardy offer specialized solutions, such as tailored vision therapy. Vision therapy is a noninvasive, doctor-led regimen tailored to rectify particular vision issues and enhance visual abilities. It doesn't just compensate, like glasses or lenses, but retrains your visual system. Typically, vision therapy targets issues not fully addressed by glasses, lenses, or surgical interventions. Check your eligibility for vision therapy by contacting us today.

What Are the Benefits of Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is a specialized program designed to enhance and improve various visual skills, contributing to overall eye health and visual performance. By targeting specific eye coordination, focus, and processing abilities, vision therapy provides the following benefits:

  • Enhanced focus and concentration
  • Improved depth perception
  • Reduced sensitivity to light
  • Increased reading efficiency
  • Better visual processing skills
  • Improved hand-eye coordination

Who is a Candidate for Vision Therapy?

Anyone experiencing vision challenges that cannot be fully corrected by glasses, contact lenses, or corrective surgery may be a good candidate for vision therapy. For example, people with strabismus have difficulty coordinating the movement of their eyes, leading to a misalignment that could result in double vision. Vision therapy can help train the eyes to work together effectively. During a consultation at Advanced Vision & Achievement Center, our experienced optometrists will assess your specific needs and determine if vision therapy is the right solution moving forward.

How Does Vision Therapy Work?

Vision therapy can be likened to physical therapy, but it zeroes in on the eyes and the vision-controlling brain regions. During your first session, Dr. Amin or Dr. Hardy conducts an exhaustive eye assessment to ascertain if vision therapy suits you. Tailoring to your specific needs, your doctor will craft a personalized vision therapy regimen, incorporating prisms, filters, digital visual tasks, and additional instruments, like balance boards and metronomes.

I have a lazy eye, with my previous vision therapy, they were able to get me into progressive contact lenses without my lazy eye turning in. Also, the rx for my regular glasses was spot on.

I've been going to Advanced Vision & Achievement and Dr. Amin since 2011 after my AVM rupture for Vision Therapy and then for my yearly eye exams and normal glasses needs. Dr. Amin & the entire staff have always been amazing and I won't go anywhere else for my vision needs. I highly recommend them to anyone who asks where me and my family go for our vision needs.

I recently completed a series of vision therapy sessions with Advanced vision and achievement center. Thelma is my mentor for the eye exercises. From the outset, Thelma's friendliness and approachability set a comforting tone for the entire therapy process. Thelma's dedication to her work is evident in her meticulous attention to detail and her genuine concern for her patients' progress. She was incredibly supportive throughout the sessions, always available to assist and encourage me with each exercise. The individualized care and guidance provided by Thelma have made a significant difference in my vision. I have noticed a remarkable improvement in the coordination of my eyes, which has positively impacted my daily life. Dr. Forest and Thelma's contribution to my vision health has been invaluable, and I highly recommend their services to anyone considering vision therapy. Thank you for your exceptional care and for making such a positive difference in my life."
