Vision Therapy or Vision Training
Helping a person to understand how to use your visual system more efficiently by a process of arranging conditions to help trigger further development in the visual system.
Activities are employed to help a person be more aware of the visual and body feedback that the brain uses to build good visual skills. This allows a person to judge, monitor, understand and develop the quality of their own visual performance.
The activities used in a vision therapy program vary depending upon several factors, including a person’s age, developmental level and visual need. Most activities used in a vision therapy program are fun and are carried out in a game-like fashion.
Everybody’s visual goals are different depending upon what is important to them, and what is important will change throughout a person’s life. It is possible to get by in life with even mediocre visual skills, but you will never reach your full potential.
Vision therapy Vs vision training
Vision therapy is generally the term used when developing visual skills that are immature or have never fully developed or when rebuilding skills that have been damaged or regressed through injury or illness.
Vision training refers more to enhancing visual skills that are already reasonably adequate or that may even be superior to most. An example is Sports Vision Training.
