Has your child recently been diagnosed with ADHD/ADD? Many parents feel helpless with this diagnosis, and they think that the only treatment option is medication. It is important that you consider all of the treatment options that are available, in order to identify the best solution for your child. We offer an effective treatment called Vision Therapy, and there are a number of children that have successfully decreased their symptoms of ADHD through Vision Therapy.
This visual therapy is designed to train the entire visual system, which includes the brain, eyes, and the body. In fact, the treatments are considered a form of rehabilitation for neurological training, helping the person to improve their thought patterns and visual control.
With vision therapy, the goal is to teach the brain to use the eyes in the right way, helping to effectively receive information, comprehend the information that is received, and appropriately react to the information. With ADHD, there is often a problem between the information that comes in and the way the person responds, so this therapy can be used to improve the connection in order to reduce the symptoms of ADHD.
Even if a person has 20/20 vision, it is still possible that they are experiencing eye problems which are impacting the symptoms of ADHD. In fact, it is quite common for children with ADHD to have 20/20 vision in at least one eye.
The visual problems in this instance are related to the alignment of the eyes, eye teaming, visual endurance, and focusing. By using Vision Therapy to improve these factors, it is possible to change the symptoms and behaviors related to ADHD.
Vision Therapy is often considered for children with ADHD, and these treatments can also be used for adults as well. The best way to determine if you or a family member can benefit from Vision Therapy is to talk with an experienced optometrist about the treatments.
