How Does Vision Therapy Work?

Vision therapy includes the use of tools and techniques, such as lenses, prisms, filters, and occluders, to enhance visual skills and processing abilities. Technology also allows patients to do home-based vision therapy exercises on the computer, which offers convenience.

Weekly 45-minute in-office appointments, complemented by 15 minutes of tailored daily exercises, are typically part of a vision therapy program. The length of your treatment depends on your eye health, your goals, how severe your visual problems are, and how consistent you are with your exercises. At Opto-mization NeuroVisual Performance, we’ll tailor and personalize a program to your specific needs.

Follow-up appointments are necessary for monitoring improvements and achieving the best possible results.

How Long Does it Take to See Results with Vision Therapy?

The aim is to enhance functionality, so remember that recovery and success can look different for different people.

Some adults experience noticeable improvements relatively quickly, while others only achieve results in up to six months or longer. This can be influenced by the patient’s condition, their customized therapy regimen, and how committed they are.

Is There an Age Limit to Vision Therapy?

Age isn’t an obstacle when it comes to vision improvement. Neuroplasticity allows the brain to be adaptable, meaning the more you practice certain visual skills, the better your visual function will become, whether young or old.

Does Vision Or Medical Insurance Cover the Cost Of Vision Therapy?

Not all providers or insurance plans offer direct billing for neuro-optometry or vision therapy services, which is why understanding your specific plan is key for determining if direct billing is available for the services you need.

We’ll also direct bill your insurer and explain any applicable deductibles or co-pays so that you enjoy a cost-effective, convenient and stress-free experience when accessing our services.

If you’re considering vision therapy to enhance your performance at work or in sports, schedule a functional vision exam in Victoria or Nanaimo with one of our neuro-optometrists, Dr. Cam or Dr. Scott.
