Let Us Help with Your Amblyopia Symptoms

Our amblyopia therapy program is worth the trip to our 2 Rising Star Optometry locations. No matter where you’re coming from, you and your child will receive a personalized treatment plan to help improve your vision.

And if you’re coming from far away, we’re happy to provide you and your family with Telehealth services after your first appointment. Our focus is your eye health, and distance shouldn’t be a barrier.

Various visual abnormalities can cause amblyopia, and its symptoms can make it difficult for you to use your vision comfortably and to excel in work, school, and sport. However, even if you’ve lived with amblyopia all your life, you can still perform exercises that help you improve your vision!

No matter how severe your amblyopia is, we can help! All you need to do is book an appointment with us, and we can develop a curated program designed for your needs.

The questionnaire below is specifically designed for us to get a better idea of your child’s functional vision. Vision problems can present daily challenges and impact self-confidence. Please answer the questions as best you can and consult with your child’s teacher where relevant. At the end of the questionnaire, you may be provided with a recommendation for vision therapy if it seems like your child will benefit from this service.

What Is Amblyopia?

Amblyopia, also known as lazy eye, is an eye condition that causes reduced vision in one of your eyes. Because of this,  you may suffer from:

  • Poor visual acuity
  • Poor depth perception
  • Squinting
  • Eyestrain
  • Vision loss

Amblyopia commonly occurs early in life, between birth and 7 years of age. It can occur for three main reasons:

  • Unbalanced refractive and visual errors, like hyperopia and astigmatism when not caught early and corrected with glasses or contact lenses
  • When there is a muscle imbalance between the two eyes, causing one to drift
  • Congenital cataracts or other eye health problems which prevented the proper amount of light from getting to the retina at a young age

How We Can Help

If caught early enough, amblyopia caused by refractive errors could be managed with glasses and contact lenses. However, vision therapy exercises can also strengthen your eyes’ skills to work together.

We use state-of-the-art vision therapy techniques to correct amblyopia symptoms caused by visual inefficiencies. Every program is tailored to your needs, and sessions can feature a variety of tools, including:

  • Therapeutic lenses, prisms and filters
  • Computerized vision games and exercises
  • Free space tracking, focusing, and convergence/divergence exercises
  • Exercises that promote improved eye-hand coordination, balance, gaze stability, depth perception, and visual motor integration
