Dyslexia

Experiencing symptoms of dyslexia?  You might actually have functional vision problems.  Even if you have 20/20 eyesight.

Say, what?!

The same symptoms that lead to a diagnosis of dyslexia are also associated with functional vision problems.  Do letters and numbers jump around on the page?  Do they appear jumbled, or in the wrong order?

It might not be dyslexia after all.

Emerging research suggests a link between visual symptoms and these symptoms might be related to the visual system, specifically the following processes:

  • Eye teaming—the way your eyes work together
  • Eye tracking—the way your eyes move, as in across a page of text
  • Perception—the way your brain interprets what your eyes take in

If vision is at the root of these symptoms, traditional methods of addressing dyslexia won’t solve the problem.

Does Vision Therapy Work?

Research has shown over and over again that vision therapy is an effective treatment for ineffective eye teaming, eye tracking, and visual processing.  We want patients (or their parents) to explore all options and make an informed decision, so we’ve compiled links to a wealth of research so you can dive in as deep as you want.
