Vision therapy is a doctor-supervised, non-surgical and customized program of visual activities designed to correct certain vision problems and/or improve visual skills that can't be corrected with glasses.
Vision therapy is often considered as "physiotherapy for the visual system" and is commonly used to help improve eye teaming and co-ordination or other visual dysfunctions. Vision therapy is a customized program of exercises designed by an optometrist or vision therapist that is performed in office and at home to help create the proper visual channels for optimum visual performance and efficiency.
