Patients who have trouble reading efficiently, and patients who can, who cannot concentrate on different tasks, take longer to be able to achieve different projects and reading comprehension. So with vision therapy, we try to enhance the visual individual visual skills that will ultimately help to have a more robust and efficient visual system. Anybody can benefit from, vision therapy, a child, an adult, or a senior, the brain never stops developing and is very flexible.
