What is the treatment strategy when it is determined that a defect in visual function is present? Our developmental eye examinations are in-depth and evaluate not only how a person sees, but how their visual system functions. When indicated, a personalized and interactive Vision Therapy program can be administered under supervision. Each program is individualized to meet a child's specific visual needs. This type of therapy is short-term and goal-oriented. For more information, click on "What is Vision Therapy" on our Vision Therapy tab.
