Signs of a Vision Problem
Vision is much more than 20/20. It includes visual skills, such as eye teaming, eye focusing, and coordinated eye movements. It also includes visual perception, which can be thought of as what the brain does with visual information that is taken in through the eyes. This blog discusses some of the vision conditions that affect people even if they are seeing 20/20

Vision therapy can be a bit unfamiliar to some people. We are going to begin this blog by discussing briefly when vision therapy is used. Many visual conditions can be effectively treated and managed with prescription glasses or contact lenses. However, for other visual conditions (convergence insufficiency, binocular vision dysfunction, etc) prescription glasses or contact lenses cannot correct the vision problem. It is in these cases that vision therapy may be prescribed.

And if you, or someone you know, has a vision problem that cannot be corrected with glasses or contact lenses this blog is for you.

Everyday in our schools students are presented with information that they are required to look at, interpret, and process that information. For years it was believed that the eyes had nothing to do with learning. That is definitely not the case. Did you know it is estimated that 80% of what we learn is through visual information?

Convergence Insufficiency (CI) is a common eye-teaming problem which occurs when the eyes are unable to maintain the ocular posture necessary for reading or near tasks. Convergence Insufficiency results from misalignment of the eyes when focusing on up close, such as when reading. The eyes have a strong tendency to drift outward when reading or doing close up work. The exact cause is unknown.
