Vision Therapy Unlocks Your Visual Potential

Vision therapy for children – getting the eyes, brain and body working together

At Eyes by Design, our specialised Vision Therapy program is tailored to enhance visual function and performance. We address various visual issues not just for children but for adults as well. Vision therapy goes beyond standard eye care; it’s a progressive program designed to correct visual-motor and/or perceptual-cognitive deficiencies.
These vision problems, such as poor tracking, focusing, teaming, fixation, eye-hand coordination and visual information processing skills can be corrected with vision therapy.


Introduction to Vision Therapy

Vision therapy is an integrated program designed to improve the way the brain, eyes and body work together.  

Vision therapy is prescribed to remedy several common visual problems, such as:

  • Convergence insufficiency
  • Lazy eye (amblyopia)
  • Crossed eyes (strabismus)
  • Challenges in visual-perceptual processing
  • Difficulties in visual motor integration

Your child will be assessed, and tested by our Behavioural Optometrist, Dr Nicholas Altuneg (Dr Nick).  We will discuss your child’s vision problems, the areas that need improving and design a course of activities and exercises to work on.
Vision therapy ultimately leads to improved learning ability, concentration and academic achievement.  The earlier therapy begins, the greater the results achieved.

Benefits of vision therapy for your child

Participants in our program often experience a significant improvement in school performance, sports, and daily activities.
Benefits of vision therapy include:

  • visual information processing skills
  • focusing and eye movement control
  • tracking accuracy
  • awareness of visual space
  • attention and concentration
  • clarity of vision
  • depth perception
  • reading comprehension and speed
  • reading interest

What’s involved in my child’s vision therapy?

Dr Nick, Behavioural Optometrist, will conduct a thorough assessment of your child’s needs to check all aspects of the visual system including the structure of their eyes, the way their eyes work, and how well your child processes visual information. If your child is found to have difficulties with visual processing, vision therapy may be recommended.

Dr Nick will put together an individualised vision therapy program to improve the functioning of their eyes.

Our Approach to Vision Therapy

Our dedicated team at Eyes by Design uses a combination of techniques, tools, and cutting-edge equipment to ensure the best outcomes for our patients. The therapy sessions include:

  • Personalised exercises tailored to meet individual needs
  • Use of lenses, prisms, filters, and computer-assisted devices
  • Regular assessments to monitor progress and adjust treatments accordingly

Your child’s vision therapy includes 12 weekly visits to the practice for one-on-one sessions with Dr Nick. He will assess your child’s progress weekly, and together with your child take part in a program of exercises and activities, individually designed to meet their specific needs.

Dr Nick will prescribe, from a selection of at-home and/or entertaining computer vision training programs, the program that best meets the needs of your child. These activities are recommended to be completed daily for optimum improvements.

After three months of vision training a comprehensive vision assessment is performed to measure improvements and identify if there are any areas of further need.
