Does your child experience trouble concentrating on school work or participating in sports? If so, he/she could be suffering from underdeveloped visual skills and experiencing a vision related learning disability. Good vision includes more than a child's ability to see words on the chalkboard at school. Visual skills begin and continue to develop from birth; however, unlike other skills, we often take the development of visual skills for granted. Consequently, problems with visual skill development are often overlooked in children. Through a set of specialized tests, Dr. Baer will evaluate your child's visual skills such as tracking, depth perception, near and distant vision acuity and peripheral vision. Then we will work with you and your child to develop a treatment plan that will improve your child's visual skills and performance. Many studies show that improved visual skills make learning and reading easier. Vision therapy is also effective for adults suffering from underdeveloped visual skills.
Optometric visual training, or visual therapy, is a specialized aspect of eye care designed to improve visual performance. Vision therapy is beneficial for individual's experiencing symptoms such as headaches, double vision, near or farsightedness, poor eye-hand coordination, a reduced ability to concentrate, and fatigue. Specially trained in vision therapy, Dr. Baer will evaluate the several elements that comprise overall visual ability including tracking, depth perception, near and distant vision acuity, peripheral vision, and binocularity. An individualized treatment plan is then developed to strengthen the patient's low visual skills. Vision therapy is effective for patients of all ages. Enhancing visual skills improves the patient's ability to interpret visual information while reducing overall visual stress. Benefits of vision therapy include enhanced eye functioning, reduced eye stress, and improvement of overall vision acuity.
Are you unable to read ordinary print or experiencing a limited or foggy field of vision? If so, you may be suffering from low vision. The term low vision is used to describe a variety of vision problems that can't be corrected with prescription lenses. Affecting people of all ages, low vision could be caused by several factors such as, an inherited eye defect, an eye injury, aging or a disease like glaucoma or diabetes. Fortunately, most patients with low vision can be helped. After a complete low vision evaluation by Dr. Baer, appropriate optical and non-optical vision aids can be prescribed and used in conjunction with your glasses or contacts. There are several optical aids available, from simple magnifying lenses to specialized illumination tools. Low vision aids will not restore sight, but they will help you effectively utilize your eyes' remaining vision. With many causes of low vision, early detection and treatment can limit the severity of vision loss. Thus it is important to see your optometrist for annual eye examinations even if you do not currently need contacts or glasses.
