Vision therapy is a form of optometry that differs from traditional methods of eye care. One of the distinguishing features of vision therapy is the fact that it consists of an all natural approach to solving vision problems. This all natural approach does not involve the use of surgery or traditional methods of vision improvement. Such an all natural approach to vision care consists of a patient directed program of activities that are designed to heal the visual system. These visual activities can involve eye exercises and other natural techniques that are used to correct vision problems and improve vision conditions. If you are interested in this subject here is some information concerning the areas of natural eye care that this field of vision care addresses:In order to qualify as a good candidate for vision therapy it is recommended that the patient should receive a comprehensive eye exam. From this point of view, the results of such an eye examination determine the patient’s eligibility to receive vision therapy treatment. The visual activities and exercises are usually performed under the care and supervision of a qualified optometrist. Eye exercises and other natural techniques are performed. Some of these visual activities designed to heal the visual system, involve the use of prisms, lenses, filters, specialized instruments and also computer programs that are designed to improve and upgrade the natural function of the visual system.Some vision health issues that vision therapy can correct includes the following: eye conditions such as Amblyopia better known as lazy eye, strabismus(cross eyes), problems involving eye muscle problems that are associated with eye movement and also eye problems related to focusing problems. Vision therapy is also known as vision training, and is also commonly called therapy for the eyes. These natural techniques help to improve other eye conditions such as double vision problems associated with convergence insufficiency,( the inability of both eyes to turn inwardly while looking at nearby objects), and also improves problems focusing while reading.This type of therapy is very effective in treating vision problems. This is especially the case with vision alignment issues that cannot be treated with glasses such as lazy eye and double vision. Even in spite of the fact that this form of eye care is considered controversial among practitioners in the traditional eye care industry many research studies have shown its effectiveness in correcting learning problems that students face in schools that are associated with focusing problems. This is due to the fact that the techniques do improve the ability of the eyes to work together as a team. These techniques also help to straighten misaligned eyes as well. Overall, these natural activities and vision exercises teach the visual system to heal itself by correcting abnormalities related to eye movements. These techniques also strengthen the connection between the brain and the eyes in order to solve vision problems.Vision therapy is a natural form of vision improvement which is also commonly called therapy for the eyes or vision training. These visual activities are performed under the proper supervision of a trained eye care professional such as an optometrist. These eye exercise techniques and other treatments that are performed are done in conjunction with the use of prisms, lenses, instruments and computerized programs that are designed to improve and upgrade the health of the visual system. These techniques improve a variety of vision problems and vision conditions such as double vision, lazy eye, strabismus and convergence insufficiency to name a few. Research studies have proven the effectiveness of these techniques. With the practice of this alternative method of vision correction you can do the things that you need to do to improve and upgrade the health of the visual system for years to come.
Some common vision conditions include glaucoma, macular degeneration, dry eyes, cataracts and vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. One particular vision condition called Diplopia better known as double vision affects about 4% of the American population. This is a vision condition whereby an individual sees one image as a double image.Some traditional medical treatments for this vision condition depend entirely on the type of double vision you possess and the factors that have contributed to this vision problem. For example, if you have monocular double vision, which is defined as double vision in one eye that is caused by astigmatism, your eye doctor may prescribe you eye glasses. If your double vision is the result of monocular double vision caused by cataracts then your eye doctor may recommend surgery to remove them. Traditional treatment for double vision in both eyes includes eye muscle surgery, wearing an opaque (not see through contact lens in one eye), fixing prisms on your glasses and having Botox injections inserted into your eye muscles. Surgical procedures are often painful and cause unwanted side effects that may in some cases make this vision condition worse. Wearing lenses only masks the symptoms. So you may be wondering is there an effective natural remedy that is safe and effective in correcting this vision problem and can double vision be corrected with eye exercises?Vision exercises can help to correct this vision problem. These techniques are an effective natural remedy for this vision condition. These techniques involve the use of an eye patch on one eye as well as the practice of eye exercise techniques that help to improve the teamwork of both eyes. One of the causes of this vision condition relates to an imbalance in the positioning of the eyes. The vision exercises help to correct this visual imbalance in the positioning of the eyes. This is accomplished through the practice of eye exercise techniques such as the fusion string eye exercise technique and a technique called the swinging eye exercise. Here are some of the vision benefits of both eye exercises:The benefits of The Fusion String Vision Exercise: The purpose of this particular vision exercise technique is to correct vision problems associated with double vision caused by convergence insufficiency( the inability of both eyes to converge(turn inward together properly when you look at a close up object that causes the eyes to see double images. This eye exercise corrects convergence insufficiency. It also helps to improve eye alignment and improves the teamwork between both eyes.The Vision Health Benefits of Swinging: Another cause of vision condition, which is the case with most vision conditions, is the buildup of stress and tension in the eyes and other parts of the body. This eye exercise activates the movement of the upper body and the eyes to relieve stress, strain and tension in the body. It also relaxes the eyes, improves eyesight and loosens up tension in the neck, shoulders and spine as well.
