The eye is the conduit for visual information that helps connect the brain to the nervous system. Vision Therapy is a neurological embedding process of retraining the eye-brain connection through lenses, prisms, filters, instruments, and patching. This therapy stimulates the parts of the brain that are not functioning to their highest potential and helps teach the brain to control the eyes to improve function and health. At Functional Medicine Center Of MN, we utilize customized treatment programs to enhance and strengthen visual skills, retrain the brain to interpret visual input, and increase accuracy and ease of processing.
The oculomotor nerve helps to adjust and coordinate eye position during movement. Vision therapy can assist our patients with learning, processing, motion sickness, and other oculomotor issues. It can also be a powerful part of rehabilitation after concussions. Brain injuries can often lead to lingering physical and emotional effects like headaches and migraines, insomnia, dizziness, motion sickness, blurred vision, balance issues, reading and comprehension problems, depression, irritability, inability to cope, and even post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Failure to address many issues associated with brain injury and concussions can prolong recovery.
The vision therapy methods at Functional Medicine Center Of MN have proved very successful in helping people who have suffered head injuries or other discomforts.
