Elements of the Vision Therapy Program

In our office we do Vision Therapy (VT) in a unit of eighteen, twenty-five minute sessions with our vision therapist, followed by a progress evaluation by the doctor at the end of each unit.  We request that VT patients do half an hour of home therapy activities at least five days a week. Materials will be provided for home therapy activities. All materials must be returned in good condition to avoid additional charges.  The rental fee is for normal wear and tear of equipment.  Sometimes it is necessary to do more than one unit of therapy, depending on the diagnosis, the quality and quantity of home therapy done and the aptitude and cooperation of the patient.

 

Scheduling

We will schedule 18 therapy sessions with the vision therapist followed by a progress evaluation office visit by the doctor per unit of therapy.  If it is indicated by diagnosis, we would be happy to schedule more than one unit at a time.  If you would like to finish vision therapy at a faster rate, it is sometimes possible to do more than one session in a week or even on the same day.  If you need to re-schedule an appointment, please give 24 hours notice. There will be a charge for missed appointments  for which we are not notified 24 hours in advance. If your child is sick, please do not bring them in.  We will allow a one-time grace period for a sick child.
