Vision Therapy Scranton and Wilkes-Barre

Rehabilitation Program for Patients with Low Vision and Vision Dysfunction

Allied Services offers a comprehensive approach to rehabilitating individuals with low vision and vision disorders. Vision therapy is a fully customized and personalized treatment program designed to improve and strengthen visual skills - eye-tracking, focusing, convergence, eye-hand coordination, visual processing speed and more.

Vision impairment, low vision, and vision dysfunction can affect your ability to perform daily living activities such as making a meal, walking, driving, or reading a book. Common symptoms of vision impairment include balance issues, blurred or double vision, difficulty focusing and concentrating, difficulty reading, dizziness or motion sensitivity, eye strain or fatigue, headaches, increased fall risk, poor balance, and loss of central, peripheral or side vision.

Vision Therapy for Improved Quality of Life

The goal of vision therapy is to provide individualized, quality care to adults with low vision deficits and vision dysfunction. Following concussion, patients may experience impairments related to vision. If these visual impairments are left untreated, they can prolong concussion recovery.

Our Occupational Therapists provide vision therapy and visual-vestibular rehabilitation to treat concussion-related vision issues. The goal is to improve visual comfort, ease, and efficiency for daily life activities. We also focus on improving visual processing and interpretation of visual information. If necessary they may partner with an Optometrist for more specialized care.
