Binocular Vision Examinations And Vision Therapy

A binocular vision examination involves tests of eye alignment, eye muscle strenth, focusing ability and speed, depth perception, eye tracking and others. Many of these tests are not part of a standard vision examination and may not be performed unless there is a sign or symptom of a binocular vision problem.

Symptoms and signs of binocular vision problems include:

  • the appearance of a turned eye
  • persistent headaches with concentrated visual tasks
  • double vision
  • difficulty seeing clearly after reading or computer work
  • tendency to close or cover one eye when looking at something
  • consistent tendency to turn or tilt the head when looking at something
  • excessive blinking during concentrated visual tasks
  • short attention span for reading or writing tasks
  • losing place, rereading or skipping words while reading

Vision therapy is effective in treating and improving many binocular vision problems. It involves a series of eye exercises that are done at home for 20-40 minutes per day. The exercises are modified or changed at follow-up visits in the clinic every 4-6 weeks. The use of eyeglasses or contact lenses may be necessary, along with vision therapy exercises.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "We use Anderson Optometry for all of our family’s vision needs. Recently, we had to have our youngest fitted for new glasses and he made the experience fun for her and informative for us. We know Dr. Anderson will always take good care of our family’s eye care and that’s why we wouldn’t go to anywhere else."
    The Harrison Family
  • "Dr. Anderson and his staff are so patient and friendly. Dr. Anderson prescribed me glasses and I had the toughest time picking out frames. They didn’t rush, but instead made helpful suggestions and now I have an awesome pair of frames, not to mention the fact that I can see ten times better than before. You guys are the best!"
