What is Vision Therapy?
Vision therapy is a rehabilitative program, prescribed to treat developmental and/or neurologically induced dysfunctions of the visual system. The American Optometric Association defines vision therapy as a sequence of neurosensory and neuromuscular activities individually prescribed and monitored by a doctor to develop, rehabilitate, and enhance visual skills and processing.
Our Vision Therapy
At Wow Vision Therapy, we are a world-class developmental and rehabilitative vision therapy practice. Our doctors and board-certified vision therapists treat binocular vision deficiencies with a personalized approach. With this approach, each session is one-on-one (therapist-to-patient), conducted under doctor supervision. Each session typically lasts for one hour, usually once or twice weekly. During treatment, our doctors and board-certified vision therapists apply state-of-the-art technology and procedures, making treatment enjoyable and productive. Our advanced approach incorporates coordinated movement, balance, auditory processing and cognitive abilities. This methodology allows our patients to develop their vision abilities and improve daily living in the classroom, workplace, and sports.
Vision therapy is prescribed to treat many different visual problems, such as:
- Accommodative Dysfunction
- Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)
- Binocular Vision Problems
- Convergence Insufficiency
- Motion Sickness
- Oculomotor Dysfunctions
- Post-Concussion Vision Syndrome
- Strabismus (Crossed or Turned Eye)

We also provide Neuro-Optometric Vision Rehabilitation to treat vision problems that occur after a:

In addition, we offer Sports Vision Training to provide athletes with advanced visual skills to gain a competitive advantage in their respective sports.
According to modern research, the most effective model of care for optometric vision therapy is office-based vision therapy, conducted under doctor supervision. While there have been attempts to simplify and provide a “self-help” home-based model of care with periodic office visits, as a basic level of care for patients, the research has proven these home-based models of care ineffective.
