Anytime you are suffering from a medical condition; it is essential for the doctor to diagnose the problem before a treatment plan is created. As with other medical conditions, it is important to get the right diagnosis for vision problems to put together the best treatment plan. There are a variety of treatments that can be used for vision problems, and your doctor will help you identify the right plan for your needs.

Types of Vision Treatments

The most common type of vision treatment involves the use of corrective lenses in glasses and contacts. Since this treatment is used so frequently, it is easy to assume that the corrective lenses will fix all types of vision problems. But, there are certain situations when corrective lenses aren’t quite enough to overcome poor vision.

Here is an overview of the three main categories of vision treatments:

  • Corrective Lenses: Eyeglasses and contacts can be used to compensate for the vision problems. These lenses don’t fix the eyes, so the poor vision will still be present when the lenses are not in use.
  • Eye Surgery: Certain types of eye conditions can be fixed with eye surgery. By changing the anatomy of the eye, the visual functions can operate in a better way.
  • Vision Therapy: This non-invasive treatment works to train the visual system to overcome the problems. Certain exercises in a series of therapy sessions can help a person overcome certain visual issues.

Long-Term Results and a Minimally Invasive Treatment

Depending on your diagnosis, you should talk with your doctor about the benefits of vision therapy. These treatments might help you to correct the problems that you are experiencing, providing long-term relief from the symptoms. It is usually best to try minimally invasive treatments before surgery and other types of treatments.

The benefit of vision therapy is that the treatment plan can be catered to match your individual needs. The eye doctor will assess your progress and vision throughout the therapy program and the treatments will be adjusted if needed.
