Vision Therapy

If the body’s visual system is not working correctly, poor vision can lead to other life-altering problems, including impaired balance, double vision, limitations in the field of vision, risk of falling and difficulty with reading, learning, driving, navigating the environment, visual memory and visual-spatial awareness.

Good Shepherd’s Vision Therapy Program is for persons throughout their lifespan whose vision-related problems stem from neurological injuries or developmental disorders, such as traumatic brain injury, concussion, stroke, autism, sensory processing difficulties or other vision impairments. Specially trained occupational therapists collaborate with local optometrists to help patients overcome neurological and developmental vision deficiencies and to support visual function.

Note: The program is not intended to correct acuity issues or low vision.
