FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Vision Training

Vision training is rooted in the techniques used in vision therapy and vision rehabilitation. These techniques are helpful as treatments to improve 20/20 vision, but with Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic’s unique vision training program, the aim is to heighten and develop neural pathways relating to motor control and balance, and proprioception, which is the awareness of your position and movement in space. Vision training can also enhance the perception and processing of incoming visual information.

Approximately 80% of what you perceive and understand about the world is through your sight. Because of this, vision plays a key role in behavior.

Vision is what enables soccer players to assess the position of the ball and the speed at which they are running so they can kick the ball at precisely the right moment in exactly the right space to score a goal.

Vision is also what students use to track words across the page, understand what they’re reading, and write down answers to test questions.

Conditions that respond well to vision training include eye-tracking, eye-teaming, accommodation reflex, and visual processing disorders.

Being able to decode and understand what you’re reading becomes significantly more challenging if your eyes are not tracking letters and lines accurately.

Patients who have tracking difficulties sometimes skip lines, misread words, fail to recognize the same word a few lines later, reread the same sentence, miss word endings, find large text easier to read, and hold what they’re reading close to their face.

To properly focus and attend to information on the page or board, or even in the world around you, it’s important that your eyes work as a team. Eye teaming problems occur when your eyes aren’t working together, and you get double or blurred vision.

This can cause reading difficulties, headaches, problems working with computers and other screens, squinting, tired eyes, poor depth perception, and trouble concentrating.

Your accommodation reflex is the ability to shift focus between near and far objects. In a school setting, this is important when copying information from the board to your page. In sports, it’s vital to be able to see other players and the ball.

Weaknesses in eye accommodation can result in headaches, difficulties with concentration, and visual fatigue. They’re often caused by concussion or other brain injuries.

Once information comes through your visual sense, your brain needs to process it. Having problems with visual processing can result in poor letter discrimination, letter/symbol reversal, poor visual memory for spelling or reading comprehension, visual-spatial difficulties, visual-motor weaknesses such as struggling to keep writing within margins, and sequencing issues such as skipping lines when reading or problems identifying word or picture order.

The visual system is something that develops, and as such, it is also a neurological function that training can improve. Find out more about vision training by calling Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic today.

Dr. Abbey saved our family. This might sound like hyperbole, but it is true.
