Relevant visual skills required for reading include eye-tracking, eye-teaming, convergence, accommodation, and visual fixation — all skills that are assessed during a functional visual evaluation.
In simpler terms, both eyes need to work together, move at the same pace, and provide a single and clear image for the brain to interpret. Imagine trying to read when the words are blurry or even doubled?
Vision therapy is a customized program that can improve these visual skills by training the brain to improve these visual skills —thereby significantly improving the child’s reading, learning, and performance at school.
