Specific Disclaimers

1. Vision Therapy Scope:

Vision therapy is a highly effective and non-invasive treatment option for many vision problems. However, it’s important to understand its scope:

  • Vision Therapy Replaces Vision Correction: Vision therapy often leads to reduced reliance on corrective lenses (glasses or contacts). However, we do not guarantee full elimination of the need for eyeglasses or contact lenses for all patients.
  • Vision Therapy’s Focus: Vision therapy primarily addresses binocular vision problems, visual processing difficulties, and vision rehabilitation. It does not treat eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, or macular degeneration. These conditions require specialized care from an ophthalmologist.

2. Visual-Related Learning Disabilities:

  • Importance of Assessment: Vision therapy can significantly improve visual skills essential for learning, often helping students overcome vision-related challenges. However, it’s crucial to have a multidisciplinary assessment to rule out or identify any co-existing learning disabilities, such as dyslexia or ADHD, which may require additional specialized intervention.
  • No Guarantees of Academic Success: While vision therapy may address underlying issues hampering academic performance, it does not guarantee any specific improvement in grades or overall school achievement. Academic success depends on a multitude of factors beyond visual function.

3. Concussion Recovery:

  • Individual Timelines: Vision therapy is a valuable tool in concussion rehabilitation, but recovery timeframes vary person-to-person. We cannot guarantee any specific duration of treatment or a timeframe for complete symptom resolution.
  • Multidisciplinary Approach: In many cases, concussion recovery requires a team-based approach, which may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, or other interventions in addition to vision therapy.

4. Sports Performance:

  • Enhancement, Not Guarantee: Vision therapy can enhance visual skills vital for athletic success. However, it does not guarantee any specific level of performance improvement and should be seen as a component of a well-rounded training program.
