Training for Your Eyes

All skills take practice and time to develop. Visual skills are no different. Children’s visual skills develop in the same way that other skills, like walking and talking, do. Vision therapy is like physiotherapy for the eyes. It helps the brain and eyes to work together as a team. 

But, vision therapy is not just exercises. It’s a tailored treatment plan customized for each patient according to their specific needs. Sessions may take place in-office, but there might be some at-home work as well. Your optometrist will determine the best course of action and show you how to help your child with their treatments.

To see if vision therapy is right for your child, request an appointment with The Bixby Eye Center today.

Does My Child Have a Vision Issue?

There are several indicators of a vision issue in children. Look for:

  • Headaches when doing close-up work
  • Sloped printing
  • Poor reading comprehension
  • Holding books or devices close to the face
  • Tilting their head
  • Closing an eye while reading
  • Skipping or repeating lines when reading

The best way to tell if your child has a vision issue is to bring them to The Bixby Eye Center for a comprehensive eye exam. Our team has plenty of experience with kid’s eyes and can put your little one at ease during the exam process.

Why Vision Therapy?

Children with underdeveloped visual skills might experience difficulty in school, sports, or social situations. There is plenty of evidence that vision therapy can help to re-train visual skil‹ls.

When they see better, they can reach their full potential. Request an appointment with The Bixby Eye Center to explore vision therapy today.
