Childhood vision conditions that are not adequately addressed at the time can lead to long term visual difficulties that you experience well into adulthood. At Stanhope Eye Associates, our vision therapy services are the solution. These same methods can be used to overcome certain reading and learning disabilities.
What exactly is our vision therapy in Stanhope? It includes eye exercises that are done under the care and supervision of our eye doctor; and possibly corrective or therapeutic lenses in the form of eyeglasses or contacts. Additional tools can also be utilized in the service of achieving the desired outcome. The eye exercises involved are not designed to make your eye muscles stronger. Rather they will train your eyes so that you can see more clearly. In a way, it’s like physical therapy for your eyes. The ocular conditions that will typically lead to needing our vision therapy in Stanhope are amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (crossed eyes), and double vision. A set of exercises will be developed especially for you. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach. As a general rule, you should expect to come in once or twice per week, for about one half hour to a full hour. You may also be given exercises for you to do on your own. The goal is simply to give you improved vision, free of he obstacles that you have been dealing with. If you were worried that the effects of your childhood eye condition were permanent, you should know that is not necessarily true. There are solutions. And we are pleased to offer them to you.
