Vision Training - what is it and what does it do?

Optometric Vision Training is a treatment plan used to correct or improve specific dysfunctions of the vision system. It includes, but is not limited to, the treatment of strabismus, amblyopia, accommodation, ocular motor function, and visual-perceptual-motor abilities.

Optometric Vision Training works on the development of visual skills, such as:


What is the relationship between Vision and Learning?

When a child reads, they do five keys things:

How does Vision Training help with learning?

Children who have difficulties learning often get frustrated and develop coping mechanisms such as becoming distracted, inattentive, lose concentration, and have poor attention spans. If visual problems are contributing to learning difficulties, these behaviors may improve throughout Vision Training as the visual systems become more efficient and learning becomes less challenging.

Vision Training uses the principles of perceptual learning. The higher level visual processing areas in the brain maintain plasticity throughout our lives even into adulthood. Another good example of neural plasticity is the ability to re-learn motor skills after a debilitating stroke if an appropriate program of physiotherapy training is completed.

Please Note: Vision Training does NOT treat reading or learning difficulties but treats the visual deficiencies that are related to learning.
