Following vision testing, we may recommend that a person undertake vision training to improve visually-based learning difficulties, such as:
- weakness in mechanical eye skills like converging eyes,
- diverging eyes,
- tracking objects,
- maintaining near focus,
- changing focus; and
- focusing delays such as span of focus, focus flexibility or focus ranges.
We can also use vision training to treat Strabismus (eye turn), Amblyopia (lazy eye), visual perceptual delays, depth perception problems, and general sight problems.
When we prescribe a vision training programme, we set activities designed to improve visual skills according to the specific issue. It can be designed as a home or in-office programme (or combination) depending on the underlying problem and the level of knowledge and monitoring needed to get the changes required.
