Strabismus Treatment (Cross or Turned Eye)

About Strabismus

Strabismus is a failure of binocular vision, in which a child or adult is unable to properly team and align their eyes together. As a result, an eye will appear to wander out of alignment. What’s worse is the impact an eye turn has on vision.

Treatment

At Wow Vision Therapy, we treat binocular vision deficiencies with a personalized approach. With this approach, each session is one-on-one (therapist-to-patient), conducted under doctor supervision. During treatment, our doctors and therapists apply state-of-the-art technology and procedures, making treatment fun and productive. Our advanced approach incorporates coordinated movement, balance, auditory processing and cognitive abilities. After treatment, our patients obtain significantly improved vision, academic abilities, and coordination skills. These improvements empower our patients’, instill a greater sense of confidence, and produce lives that are more productive.

One approach to correct the problem is eye muscle surgery, which results in the cosmetic realignment of the eyes after one or multiple operations. However, even though the eyes appear to be straight after surgery, the brain still doesn’t know how to properly team the eyes together, binocularly. As a result, the brain will continue to suppress vision out of one eye, which leads to poor depth perception and stereo blindness.

Our advanced strabismus treatment protocols allow most patients with strabismus to attain binocular vision, including depth perception. When surgery is indicated, we work with ophthalmologists who specialize in strabismus surgery and co-manage the patient’s care before and after surgery.

Our Strabismus Treatment includes:

  • Binocular Vision Therapy and 3-D gaming
  • Visual Processing Therapy
  • Eye-Hand Coordination Therapy
  • Oculomotor Therapy
  • Accommodation “focusing” therapy
  • Visual Motor Therapy
