Has your child been diagnosed with Lazy Eye? Is there a family history of a Lazy Eye?

Amblyopia, also known as a lazy eye, is decreased vision in one or both eyes although the eye otherwise appears normal. This is due to a problem with how the brain interprets visual information, not with the eye itself. Because of this, Vision Therapy is preferred over traditional methods of treatment such as patching or atropine drops. Often patching or the use of drops has a negative impact on binocular vision and visual processing. Both of these options also can be uncomfortable or impact the child socially.

Because Amblyopia gets progressively worse without treatment, early detection is important. When caught early, Vision Therapy produces excellent results.

Treatment

At Pediatric & Adult Vision Care vision therapy is conducted one-on-one with a therapist, under close doctor supervision. State-of-the-art technology is incorporated into therapy sessions making the sessions fun and interactive. Unlike patching or atropine drops Vision therapy has no negative side effects! Vision Therapy works to develop binocular skills using interactive games and activities. Patching is used for certain activities in therapy, but time spent patched in minimal.
