What Is Vision Therapy?

Vision Therapy is a customized treatment program that trains our eyes and brain to work together. It develops and enhances fundamental visual skills and abilities, such as eye tracking, eye teaming, convergence, focusing, and visual processing skills.

It is performed under optometrist supervision and is individualized to fit the specific needs of each unique patient.

Vision therapy consists of in-office appointments and at-home exercises.

Benefits of Vision Therapy

  • Non-Invasive

    Vision therapy doesn’t involve medication, surgery, or invasive procedures. Instead, it corrects eye problems naturally.

  • Great for children and adults

    Your brain is capable of forming new neural pathways throughout your entire life, so vision therapy can be effective at any age.

  • Easy to do

    Instructions are easy to follow. You or your child will learn them during in-office sessions and practice the exercises at home.

  • Customized treatment

    Following the consultation and eye exam, our eye care professionals will custom design a vision therapy program to suit your specific needs.


Should Your Child Have Vision Therapy?

Below is a list of behaviors that may indicate a vision problem:

  • Squints, tilts head or covers one eye to see better. 
  • Reports blurry or double vision
  • Has difficulty in school even if they understand the subject matter
  • Has trouble focusing or paying attention
  • Avoids activities that require visual skills, such as reading, drawing, or puzzles

It is not uncommon for academic or behavioral problems to be caused by vision difficulties. Vision therapy not only helps your child see better, but can also improve learning, behavior and self-confidence. 

Contact Carillon Vision Care in Glenview to find out whether your child's lagging visual skills may be getting in the way of their learning.

I had an exceptional experience with Dr. Neukirch. He is a true professional and treated us with war... mth and friendliness. Dr. Neukirch is a very skilled practitioner, he is very concise and methodical. Also, the office staff is very affable, and they always greet me with a smile. His office is very clean and very well maintained. Therefore, it is a very buoyant environment, and I am very satisfied with the result for my Ortho-K lenses! I had a very positive experience there, so I highly recommend Dr. Neukirch's practice. I would like to give him more than 5 stars, thank you very much!!

This has been my place for eye exams and glasses for more than 10 years. Dr. Neukirch is thorough in... his examinations, has a wonderful and kind disposition, and uses the latest technology. The staff is always courteous. They have a pretty nice selection of frames. Make sure you say hi to Leo, the cutest member of the team!

I've been going here for a couple of years and I love it! The optometrist did a thorough job and ans... wered all my questions. The service people in front were pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional, even when dealing with a nightmare customer (rude, verbally abusive, and threatened to leave nasty reviews).

Dr. DalPorto is terrific! I am a pathological myope who had exclusively seen a pediatric ophthalmolo... gist for all of his corrective lens needs since childhood, but it was long past time to stop seeing him. I selected Carillon after critically examining Google Reviews for eye clinics near me and was not disappointed. An informative display in the lobby about myopia instantly made me feel welcome. Dr. DalPorto is the model doctor: superbly affable, extremely thorough, and caring toward the patient's holistic well-being, not only optical health. I was delighted to receive my new prescription here and the great news that my eyesight - if corrected - is strong enough to pass vision screening tests to drive. She was also the first to tell me that my vision would be even better were I to switch to rigid contact lenses. If you're in the Chicagoland area and in need of such services, I wouldn't go anywhere but here.

Vision Therapy FAQs

How long does it take for vision therapy to work?

Since every patient's condition and program is unique, some may see improvement in just a couple of weeks, while others may notice progress after several months.

Can vision therapy improve my child’s academic performance?

Often, poor performance in school can mask an undiagnosed vision or eye problem. In these cases, vision therapy can transform your child’s academic performance and attitude toward school. Since 80% of learning is visual, any improvement in visual skills is likely to positively impact school performance.

Does vision therapy work?

Yes. Scientific studies confirm the effectiveness of vision therapy in treating convergence insufficiency, amblyopia, and other eye conditions. A study published in the Archives of Ophthalmology and funded by the National Eye Institute (NEI) showed that 75% of patients who attended weekly in-office sessions and performed daily exercises at home noticed marked improvement in convergence symptoms.
