Dyslexia language-based processing disorder can hinder reading, writing, spelling, and sometimes even speaking. Dyslexia is not a sign of poor intelligence or laziness or the result of impaired hearing or vision. In fact, most children and adults with dyslexia typically have healthy eyes and sharp vision, yet a large number of individuals with dyslexia have other undetected vision problems.
Although not a cure, Optometric vision therapy treats vision problems that can interfere with learning to read, reading to learn, and the learning process in general. Some of these visual deficiencies can include but are not limited to: oculomotor, vergence, accommodation, binocularity and visual perception skills. By developing these skills, individuals can better cope with the challenges that are often related to dyslexia.
