Exercise For Your Eyes

Vision therapy helps strengthen the communication between your eyes and your brain through a combination of various activities and exercises. Both children and adults can benefit from vision therapy as long as there is proper guidance from their doctor and genuine dedication from the patient.

At Perspective Eye Center, we want to make sure we do our part to help you feel healthy and comfortable. That’s why Dr. Enfinger designs each vision therapy curriculum unique to each individual. Vision is more than just the eyes, it is how the brain perceives the surrounding world & interacts with it. Vision therapy can undo inefficient neurological adaptations and create more efficient, more comfortable binocular vision. Treatment length varies, depending on the extent of the conditions requiring treatment. Consistent attendance and home therapy have a direct impact on how quickly a patient finds success in vision therapy.

Common Vision Problems

Amblyopia

Amblyopia, or “lazy eye,” is a condition that causes one eye to drift, appearing to not focus in tandem with the other. It’s caused by a lack of development in the “lazy” eye, which often occurs due to an uncorrected refractive error or eye misalignment.

Because amblyopia is often a developmental condition, it typically occurs in infancy or early childhood. Early diagnosis and treatment are imperative to correct the problem and give the brain’s neural and visual pathways a chance to develop properly.

When a child has amblyopia, they seldom realize one of their eyes is not functioning correctly as the stronger eye does all the work. Having your child’s eyes examined before they are 6 months old can aid in detecting any signs that their eyes are not functioning normally or seeing equally. Annual eye exams are recommended for children starting at age 3.

Strabismus, or “crossed eyes,” is a condition that causes the eyes to appear crossed or misaligned. Strabismus may be intermittent or constant and can worsen when the eye muscles are tired. Strabismus is caused by weak eye muscles, problems with the nerves that control the eyes, or issues with the brain, where visual signals are processed.

Strabismus is often hereditary and generally affects around 4% of children. Although strabismus can’t be prevented, proper treatment during the early stages can correct the problem or reduce its severity.

If you notice your child’s eyes turning inward or outward intermittently, bring them in for a thorough eye exam to pinpoint the cause and prevent it from worsening.
