Vision Therapy for Adults

Published on
June 27, 2022

Adults generally accept changes in themselves as part of aging, and think that there's nothing they can do about it. When it comes to visual symptoms in adults, help is often available.

What are the possible visual symptoms in adults?

The following are possible visual symptoms adults may experience:

  • Having headaches or having trouble seeing after you've been working on your computer or looking at lots of paperwork all day long.
  • It is also possible to experience tension in the neck due to frequent head turns or tilting in the workplace.
  • You read better when you close one eye, and you lose your place frequently when you're reading.

All of these symptoms indicate a vision problem. And the good news is these types of vision problems are highly treatable through a course of vision therapy. 

Find out if your symptoms indicate an underlying vision deficit, take the vision symptom assessment 

What eye conditions can vision therapy treat?

Some of the common conditions treated by vision therapy are:

  • Eye strain
  • Strabismus
  • Amblyopia
  • Convergence insufficiency
  • Saccadic dysfunction
  • Traumatic brain injury

Can vision therapy help with the visual symptoms in adults?

A clinical trial concluded that vision therapy was effective for 61.9% of adult patients who received in-office and home therapy.

Adults can benefit from vision therapy just as much as children. Adults can also benefit from vision therapy because of neuro-plasticity. Neuroplasticity enables your brain to remain dynamic and flexible throughout your life. One of the best things about doing vision therapy for the above described vision problems is that you will not only improve your vision but you will also have a better quality of life.

Vision therapy is well worth the response, time and effort. Our Son had a hard time focusing and writing neatly. After vision therapy Seth could complete a task in half the time if previously took. His abilities to focus improved greatly and so did his handwriting.

Also, he was better at listening. As a parent, we wanted learning to be fun for our Son, and vision therapy made this possible.

Vision Therapy has given or son the tools he needs to be able to scan and read the written word more effectively and efficiently.

He love working with John and these working sessions give him the motivation to gladly work on his homework assignments.

It amazed us to see the difference in the tracking of his eyes and along a line of it's from the beginning to the end of the treatment.

Dr. McBryar , Kristen and John  are all marvelous and we would recommend them to anyone I only wish that we would have found them sooner!

Prior to coming to the institute for vision development my son complained of daily headaches. Therapy has eliminated his headaches completely. I love knowing my son is able to learn pain-free for the rest of his life because of the work that has been done over just a few weeks in this office. He he absolutely loved coming that didn't even feel like going to a doctor or therapy. We are grateful for the relief he was able to find by coming here.

Thank you!

When we first came to the practice, my son did not have huge issues, but lots of small ones- trouble with reading, sports (hitting the baseball consistently), coordination, etc- that were not easily detectable,but when put together presented issues. The staff here were all very professional and loving towards him. While I was concerned in the reading, my son was concerned with the athletic side. Seeing improvement night off the bat gave him confidence that i have nor seen in him and made him want to not only Come to therapy, but also made him want to work hard. He has surpassed his grade level and above in reading and hit his first home run this year! Thank you!!!
