Who Can Benefit?
There are no upper age limits for who can benefit from vision therapy.
Both children and adults can benefit from vision therapy, depending on the type of problem.
Vision therapy can start with children as young as three years of age, although five is generally a more appropriate age when children have the attentional and language skills necessary for more advanced therapy. There are no upper age limits for vision therapy as our brains have the flexibility to learn new skills, including visual skills, throughout life. Sue Barry’s landmark book Fixing My Gaze is a wonderful story of an adult gaining depth perception through vision therapy.
Vision therapy can also be very helpful in recovery from the visual challenges of concussion and acquired brain injury.
