Vision therapy helps those whose eyes do not work together as a team. Their eyes do not aim simultaneously at the same visual target, causing poor performance in reading, sports, depth perception, etc. Binocular vision specifically focuses on the functionality of both eyes at once. Skills like tracking, fusion, stereopis, convergence, and visual motor integration will be tested in the initial examination.
Depth perception is an important skill to have for everyday actions like reaching out to shake someone’s hand, pouring into a container, stepping off a curb or step, and throwing or catching a ball. Want to test your depth perception? Check out this quick game to test if both of your eyes are functioning in sync!
