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.

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.
