What Even is Vision Anyway?
Vision is an active, learned process that enables an individual to gather, analyze, process, store, and respond to light information. 80% of an individual's information is obtained through vision. Nearly everyone is born with the potential for sight; however, we must learn to see, just like we must learn everything.
The process of vision can be broken down into three areas: 1) eyesight (refraction corrected), 2) efficiency of gathering information, and 3) visual processing. A vision problem exists when there is a deficiency in any component of the process.
The way you use and care for your visual system directly effects your enjoyment of play, school, or work. School children and college students now read three times the number of textbooks their grandparents did and the shift to computers has engaged millions of workers in prolonged, near-vision tasks. These changes in our visual habits magnify visual deficiencies and can result in eye strain, discomfort, headaches, blurred vision, and overall decreased performance.
Vision therapy is a specialty that involves the remediation of poorly developed visual skills. Since vision is learned, retraining poorly developed ocular skills aids in gaining maximal efficiency and gives an individual the chance to fulfill their ultimate potential.
Areas of treatment include ocular motor aiming and tracking (often deficient in the learning disabled population), binocular vision anomalies (strabismus or eye turn), amblyopia or lazy eye (inefficient visual processing) and accommodation or focusing (often a component in developing nearsightedness).
Symptoms of headaches, eye strain, and fluctuation or blurring of distance and near vision can thus be treated using visual exercises, with or without the need for full-time spectacle wear. Myopia (nearsightedness) can sometimes be slowed in its progression by means of vision therapy as well.
