  • Depth perception
  • Peripheral vision
  • Binocularity
  • Attention maintenance
  • Visual acuity at various distances
  • Visualization and memory

How to Get Started With Vision Therapy

Determining a treatment or management plan involves an evaluation and assessment that typically takes one to three hours, with the possibility of multiple visits. A separate visit may also be scheduled to discuss evaluation results and management options with patients and their families.

Vision therapy (VT) is a vital component of the plan, consisting of a progressive program of customized vision exercises performed under the supervision of a doctor. In-office sessions, usually held once a week for 30 minutes to an hour, are complemented by recommended home practice.

With our expertise in vision therapy, we’re here to help you overcome these challenges and achieve optimal visual performance.

Will the insurance cover my vision therapy?

Please note that every insurance policy is unique, and we cannot determine your specific coverage. We advise you to contact your insurance provider directly to inquire about coverage for “Vision Training” and assessments. We cannot submit claims directly to insurance companies for visual assessments and training. Once payment is received, we can provide you with the necessary invoice statements to seek reimbursement from your insurance company. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident and have an open file, please fill out the “Acquired Brain Injury/Concussion Intake form,” as we can submit an OCF-18 through HCAI for funding.
