While it was once believed that neurological changes could only occur in a set critical period, more recent research has proved this to be false. If the brain was only capable of learning and changing when we were children, why would we continue education through high school or college? How would we learn the skills a a new job? Why would we remain curious throughout life?
The concept of neuroplasticity explains why people of all ages are capable of improving and learning. As we emerge from the dated thinking that improvement has an expiration date, we begin to realize that new neural pathways can be formed at any age. This means that whether you are 7 or 70, your visual system can improve. Neuroplasticity is the basis for vision therapy and its use following acquired brain injury.
We have worked with patients of all ages and know from their experiences that, regardless of your age, you are not “too old” to improve.
