Visual/perceptual therapy helps adults and children who experience visual deficits, which decrease the ability to effectively use vision during daily activities, due to stroke, brain injury, eye injury or disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes or other medical conditions.
The initial assessment includes several specialized tests, including visual acuity/sharpness, oculomotor skills (ability to quickly and accurately move eyes), visual field, depth perception, color discrimination, visual scanning, visual processing and visual perception.
Our team of occupational therapists helps individuals improve their visual skills, thereby increasing independence and safety at home and in the community, through activities such as worksheets, computer-based tasks, functional activities in the clinic and in the community, and instruction in use of adaptive visual aids.
To participate in visual/perceptual therapy in the outpatient setting, an individual must have a prescription from their physician requesting an evaluation.
