Welcome to Calgary Vision Therapy
There’s more to sight than 20/20 vision.
Vision therapy is among our core focuses at Eye Live, as it can help address numerous vision concerns that traditional strategies, like lenses and medications, might not be able to help with.
In partnership with our sister practice, Calgary Vision Therapy, we can help address potential issues like amblyopia, strabismus, learning-related vision problems, eye tracking dysfunctions, convergence insufficiency, attention deficit disorders, visual perceptual delays, and traumatic brain injury-related vision problems for patients of all ages.
My child had their eyes tested already, and they were told they had 20/20 sight. Why would more testing be needed? Find answers to this question here and learn about the 20/20 Myth (what 20/20 really means).
To start, please contact our team at Calgary Vision Therapy to book an appointment. Let us help you and your family unlock your vision’s potential today.
What Is Vision Therapy?
Once we establish that vision therapy is a suitable strategy, we’ll work with you or your loved one to build a treatment plan combining both office visits and in-home activities to help support numerous visual skills.
Is Vision Therapy for Adults & Kids?
Vision therapy can be a suitable treatment for patients of all ages. For children, we typically address learning-related vision problems associated with performance concerns at school or while playing sports.Vision therapy can also help address vision concerns in adults caused by traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). We personalize the program based on the issue and what may have caused it.
How Does Vision Therapy Work?
Success in vision therapy can come down to the quality of care you receive and the level of commitment you or your loved one has in the program.
At Eye Live, we aren’t just recommending a few types of eye exercises to perform at home—we’re guiding you with weekly in-office sessions with your vision therapist at Calgary Vision Therapy—specifically, time progress evaluations with Dr. Neufeld and benchmarks to help you develop or rehabilitate your visual skills.
However, because every program is unique, we recommend contacting Calgary Vision Therapy to begin scheduling the evaluation process so we can determine what may be causing your visual issues and what we can do to help.
The Neuro-Optometry Eye Exam
A neuro-optometry eye exam is where we dive into the relationship between your eyes and brain—it involves a complete assessment of the ability to see and how the brain might affect it.
It can be especially helpful for kids who are having difficulty with reading or learning and for folks who have visual difficulties but don’t have an existing eye disease. Neuro-optometry exams go beyond the standard comprehensive eye exam by really focusing on visual skills and how to support them.
Developing Your Program
After your exam, we can develop a personalized vision therapy program with a combination of techniques and guided exercises to help you or your loved ones reach their goals. Depending on the extent of the issue, eye exercises can be performed in our office or at home.
Some of the eye exercises and strategies we recommend include:
- Therapeutic lenses
- Structured developmental activities
We may adjust our approach during the program, and we’ll always be here to help if you have any questions or concerns.
What Issues Can Vision Therapy Address?
Vision therapy can help with a range of vision-related concerns, depending on what is causing the issue, including but not limited to:
- Learning-related vision problems
- Eye tracking dysfunctions
- Visual problems masquerading as ADHD
- Binocular dysfunction
- Double vision
