Vision Therapy for Convergence Insufficiency

Posted by Dr Michael Forrest on 26 October 2019 | 0 Comments

Tags: , , , , ,

When looking at a near target, such as text on a page (or a phone), the eyes converge so that both are fixating on the object of regard. Convergence Insufficiency, in which the two eyes struggle to maintain fixation together on a near target, is a reasonably common condition in childhood and a cause of double vision, blur at near, and reading difficulty. It has often been treated using vision therapy.
