Referring Professionals for Vision Therapy, Joplin
What Is Vision Therapy?
Vision Therapy helps patients improve their foundation for reading, learning and playing sports. It’s a series of custom and individualized activities and exercises which function as a form of neuro-optometric rehabilitation.
In other words, Vision Therapy retrains the brain to more effectively interact with the eyes and therefore improve vision functioning. The goal is to enhance eye tracking, focusing and eye teaming abilities as well as eye-hand coordination and visual processing speed.
Our program is not only for children. Vision Therapy is effective for adults, especially if they are motivated to improve their visual abilities. Conveniently located in Joplin, we are able to provide vision therapy for Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas and Oklahoma.
Vision Therapy is all about the neurological understanding of the connection between vision and the brain in order to treat or enhance and/or correct vision difficulties, coordination, and learning. You can think of it as a kind of physical therapy that repairs or improves the way your eyes and brain interact. The process and treatment program is completely customized to the specific conditions and needs of the patient by our eye doctors.
Vision Therapy is highly effective and is non-invasive. Depending on the circumstances, it either rehabilitates from surgery or replaces surgical solutions entirely.’
