Do You Need Vision Therapy in Burlington?
Vision therapy is similar to physical therapy for the visual system, including the eyes and the parts of the brain that control vision. In many cases the visual system has a problem with development, and the brain creates adaptations to account for the lack of normal development. These adaptations include a turned eye, lazy eye, and sometimes more subtle symptoms like covering or closing an eye while reading. The objective of therapy is to jump start the development of the visual process so these adaptations are no longer needed. Our goal at Dr. Tracy Brodie and Associates is to get the patient seeing clearly while using both eyes as a team.
