The Foundation of Vision Therapy: How Does it Work?

Vision therapy is built upon the principle of neuroplasticity, which refers to the brain's ability to adapt and reorganize itself in response to new experiences and learning. This concept has been extensively studied, and it has been demonstrated that the visual system is not static but can be modified through targeted exercises and activities.

Children, in particular, have experienced notable benefits from vision therapy, especially those grappling with learning and focus challenges. These young minds are at a critical stage of development, where visual skills play a fundamental role in their academic progress and everyday activities.

Vision therapy offers tailored interventions that target specific visual difficulties, helping children overcome obstacles that may hinder their learning and concentration.


Key Research Findings in Support of Vision Therapy

Numerous scientific studies and clinical trials have investigated the efficacy of vision therapy in addressing visual challenges. Here are some key research findings:

  • Convergence Insufficiency (CI)

    Research published by The Cochrane Collaboration found vision therapy highly effective for treating convergence insufficiency. This condition causes the eyes to have difficulty working together when focused on nearby objects.

  • Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)

    The Pediatric Eye Disease Investigator Group (PEDIG) conducted research showing that vision therapy, combined with atropine eye drops, can significantly improve vision in children with amblyopia.

  • Eye-Tracking Disorders:

    Studies have demonstrated that vision therapy can effectively address eye-tracking problems, enhancing the ability to follow moving objects and improving reading skills.

  • Post-Concussion Vision Problems

    Research has shown that vision therapy can help individuals recover from post-traumatic brain injury-related vision problems, including double vision and tracking difficulties.

Everyone is amazing. It was super easy to get an appointment and the lady that scheduled us was nice... and efficient. The secretary, when we went in, was super nice as well very informative also. The tech (not sure her official title, but the lady that ran all the machines) was amazing! My son is 6 and she explained everything so well so that he would understand what to do. The Dr also has a talent for getting young children to understand him. He was also extremely nice and patient and took time to explain things.

I had 3 pairs of Cartier optucal glasses I needed lens updates for. It was impossible to find a shop... who could drill lens for my rimless frames. They did a great job and at half the cost of my usual shop in Chicago. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I will be back for sure!

Scratched my eye on vacation, which resulted in a scratched cornea. I have no previous eye condition... s yet finding this provider, getting an appointment was smooth. Wait time was short and the actual appointment was quick. Dr. Loriane Payan was very sweet, spoke to me as if we were friends and I felt comfortable asking questions. Would recommend to anyone!

I’ve always received friendly customer service and professional support. I like the fact that I ca... n ask questions without feeling mindless, or feel I’ve been rushed out as if I’m some type of number or a quota to be filled. Dr. Jose is the best.

First of all, where has this place been all my life? If it wasn’t for my mom’s recommendation, t... hen I wouldn’t have had any idea about how good this place is. The whole experience was nothing short of incredible. Dr. Lorraine Payan is definitely a very good eye doctor, from the instant she walked in, she was very personable and very friendly. She was extremely thorough and knowledgeable about the health of my eyes. I’m glad to have found this place and that they take my insurance which saved me a lot of money. You can bet that I will return for my next visit, as this is my new place to get my eyes checked. Thank you.

Amazing place. Very caring and understanding individuals. Dr. Jose Payan is an incredible eye doctor... . Very down to earth and does not mind educating his patients during the treatment process. I wish I would’ve taken a picture of my eyes before & after my infection. Finding a trusty eye doctor or eye care center can be difficult, so I truly feel blessed that I stumbled upon this place. I will recommend this place to anyone. You can tell how much they care about the work they do, and I hope each employee there knows how appreciated they are.
