Vision Therapy helping anyone?
Has anyone received visual therapy for their eye issues? I have recently developed diplopia and also am (successfully) dealing with CRVO. After searching hard in my community of Jacksonville, FL, I finally ended up with a low vision specialist OD. How wonderful to know these professionals exist! Part of her practice is a vision therapist on staff. I've only had two appts – 16 planned – but am amazed at the work we are doing. In addition to the weekly hour long sessions, I do a lot of eye exercises at home. It is reprogramming the brain and eye to work together, or to work together differently. The therapist said that she has had a lot of success working with diplopia pts. VT is not accredited like PT and OT, so it is therefore not reimbursed; however, if I can restore some or more of my vision, it is well worth the out-of-pocket cost. I'll keep you posted on my progress, but let me know if you've had any experiences with vision therapy. Light to you! Sue
