We design, administer, and monitor vision training programs for visual efficiency dysfunctions such as disorders of eye coordination (teaming), fusion skills, near focusing, and visual tracking. These programs usually take only two to three months to complete if the patient does the assigned exercises on a daily basis for about 20 to 30 minutes at home. Therapy programs for amblyopia, nystagmus, and certain types of strabismus are also available.
Perceptual skills training programs are tailored to the specific needs of the child and often can be administered or coordinated with schools, tutor services, or other remedial programs and training activities. Forty-five minute office visits are scheduled weekly or at periodic intervals to supervise the training program. Most of the training is done at home under the guidance of parents or a tutor or even at school in some cases. We supply the necessary training materials and some software training products. In-office training programs are also available that require two office visits per week, but no home training is needed in these cases.
