If in your childhood you were diagnosed with amblyopia (also called lazy eye), strabismus (crossed eyes), or double vision, you probably received care directed toward improving your vision. However, there can be lingering effects of them into adulthood. Also, some kids do not get diagnosed or treated at the time. The impact of such conditions don’t necessarily have to be permanent. At Eye Encounters, our vision therapy in Millbourne has a track record of achieving impressive results. And while no specific outcomes can be guaranteed, engaging in this method of treatment is well worth the effort, even if does not rid you of the problem entirely.
How exactly does our vision therapy in Millbourne work? Think of it as physical therapy for your eyes. Under the supervision of our optometrist, you will come in one or two times per week to perform eye exercises that are specially designed to train your eyes to work more efficiently in tandem, and therefore reduce the vision difficulties that you’ve been experiencing. This is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. You are a unique individual, and your needs are specific to you. That’s why our vision therapy in Millbourne is tailored to your circumstances. Each of your sessions should be expected to last for about 30 to 60 minutes. Depending on our eye doctor’s evaluation of your vision issues, you may also be directed to supplement the exercises done here with ones you do on your own at home. Most people are able to notice improvement to some degree, with fortunate patients getting outstanding results.
Our vision therapy services are also useful for dealing with some reading and learning disabilities. We encourage you to reach out to our office so that we can arrange an appointment for you. After an examination and consultation, you’ll know if you’re a good candidate.
