VISION THERAPY CHANGES PEOPLES LIVES
Dr. Fabian Tai & Associates offers Vision Therapy.
Vision Therapy is a combination of skills, some of which include, but is not limited to tracking, fixation, focus change, depth perception, peripheral vision, binocularity and visualization. When one or more of these skills are lacking, it can cause difficulty with hand eye coordination, reading and other near work. Vision Therapy is an office based, doctor supervised treatment program that uses a series of eye exercises to improve one’s vision and many related areas of one’s life as well.
The first step in any Vision Therapy program is a comprehensive vision examination. Following a thorough evaluation, an Optometrist who specializes in vision development will advise the candidate as to whether Vision Therapy would be appropriate treatment.
