Functional Vision Program

The Functional Vision Program is provided by occupational therapy for the eyes and brain. The Functional Vision Program can develop or improve basic visual skills and abilities, as well as the comfort, ease, and efficiency of eyesight, enjoyment of reading, and visual thinking (how the brain interprets visual information).

Some common ways vision therapy can help is by:

  • Improving vision related reading and learning problems
  • Improving vision in “lazy eye”, decreasing cross-eyes or turned eyes
  • Preventing or reducing nearsightedness
  • Enhancing sports performance
  • Alleviating visual stress headaches

One of the most common reasons for a patient to begin vision therapy is due to reading and learning problems associated with convergence insufficiency. 

What does the Functional Vision Program cost?

Based on an occupational therapy evaluation and plan of care, insurance or Medicaid is billed directly for this program. Families are responsible for deductibles, copayments and any portion of the program not covered by their policy.
