Signs and symptoms that warn of vision problems
Development of the stereoscopic vision
Developing 3D vision is possible at any age Stereoscopy (stereopsis or 3D vision) is the ability to judge how far away objects are, by using and combining the images seen by each eye separately. Thus, the objects gain a three-dimensional shape and we can see the space between the objects. Stereoscopy is not a light switch, that is either in off or on position, but is a constantly occurring process.
Eyes and Spine
Extraocular muscle tension Aack of eye alignment causes uneven muscle tension in the eyes. Imagine focusing on one object, but one eye is unable to maintain the same fixation as the other eye. This is very important, because we move and position our body according to what we see, and the symmetrical movements of the eyes and the symmetrical muscular tension in our eyes allow us to have an optimal perception of the world and to calculate distances suitable.
Questions for ophthalmologists
Questions for ophthalmologists who say vision therapy isn't working: Have they ever tried, in the long run, to see the world with one eye? Ever wondered what it's like to not see 3D and not be able to appreciate distances? Have they wondered what it would be like to always miss the target in the ball game? How would they feel if they didn't have the courage to look people in the eye?

Basic eye movements
Oculomotor skills Technically, the control of eye movements is called oculomotor ability.This skill is essential for any activity, from sports to reading. Oculomotor skills allow us to hit a baseball or follow a text line without losing our place. At school, if a child cannot follow the text without problems
The Worth test is a clinical test to check the brain's suppression of an eye's image. Suppression (suppression) can occur in binocular vision disorders, when the brain ignores or fails to process information received from one eye. Suppression is actually an adaptation of the brain to the existence of strabismus, amblyopia or anisometropia and represents a
Thoughts on vision therapy
I recently read some people's opinions about vision therapy. Someone claimed to have tried vision therapy but it has not been successful. Someone else said he remained with double vision and regretted ever starting vision therapy. Another person strongly stated that vision therapy is not effective at all. I felt sorry to hear all these stories. I realized that they had not been able to get
What happens when strabismus surgery does not work?
Ophthalmologists often recommend surgery as the best option for the treatment of strabismus. However, surgery is only a cosmetic solution and will not improve long-term vision, as a personalized vision therapy program can do. When someone has strabismus, the eyes can "wander" or be deviated to
