Struggling Students: A Global Problem with a Universal Solution , According to the College of Optometrists in Vision Development

Tim Lim had low self-esteem and even thought he was stupid.  The Dyslexia Association Malaysia referred Tim Lim to Mr.Stanley (Developmental & Behavioral Optometrist) SunTime Vision Specialist  who was able to solve the problem.  Tim Lim had convergence insufficiency (a very treatable eye coordination disorder that can make reading very difficult).  Once the vision problem was corrected his mother, Ang Si Ying, saw a huge difference, “Now Tim Lin is starting to use his brain and he is very intelligent!  He no longer throws tantrums when asked to do schoolwork and homework gets done much faster.” For more of Ours Success stories click here & Here

With time and consistency, vision therapy patients may experience significant improvements in visual comfort, skills and efficiency. The American Optometric Association, National Eye Institute and many eye health professionals approve and recommend vision therapy for the treatment of both physiological and perceptual vision conditions.

Even though visual therapy treatment results vary from patient to patient, treatments are often effective for providing results that corrective lenses and surgical procedures are unable to offer. Many patients who have undergone vision therapy report improved peripheral vision, better eye-hand coordination, better focusing and faster visual reaction time.

As an added benefit, patients also report fewer environmentally induced headaches, blurred vision, eye strain and nausea. Furthermore, although it is often used to treat visual dysfunctions, visual behavioral therapy is also helpful for the prevention of the future visual problems, as well as for enhancing existing visual capacity.

Vision Therapy for Children

Vision therapy is appropriate and helpful for patients of all ages – including children. In fact, Mayo Clinic researchers suggest that visual therapy is the best way to treat convergence insufficiency in children, and it may also be effective for addressing learning-related visual problems like ADHD and dyslexia. Other conditions that may be improved with therapy include lazy eyes (amblyopia) and eye turns (strabismus). Vision therapy has also been shown to be useful in training both eyes to work together with better coordination and more efficient binocular vision.
