Vision Problems and Correction
There are many different types of vision problems that could be affecting your eyesight. Vision correction is a general term used to describe a variety of optometric techniques for correcting less-than-perfect vision. The doctors at Birmingham Vision Care provide consultation, treatment and referrals for vision problems and most vision correction surgeries and procedures.
These are just a few of the vision problems that we treat:
- Hyperopia (farsightedness)
- Myopia (nearsightedness)
- Presbyopia (aging eyes)
- Accommodative Dysfunction
- Binocular Vision Dysfunction
- Prescribing prism
- Irregular cornea
- Traumatic brain injury/concussion
Here are some of the vision correction areas that we specialize in:
- Corneal reshaping (Orthokeratology)
- LASIK (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis)
- Low Vision Therapy
- Corrective glasses
- Corrective contact lenses
- Specialty contacts
- Genetic testing
Vision Therapy is a specialized program which helps correct visual, developmental and perceptual problems that are not helped through glasses or contacts. Think of it as physical therapy for the eyes and brain. People of all ages can benefit from Vision Therapy but early detection of a problem can often mean a higher likelihood that the condition can be corrected. At Birmingham Vision Care we can evaluate your vision and offer solutions through the Vision Development Center, housed in the second floor of our Bloomfield Township facility.
Some vision issues don’t manifest in a way that people recognize as vision related. For example, your child may have 20/20 vision but has trouble in school, can’t learn to read, gets sleepy when reading, tilts their head when doing close work or even has behavioral problems that you can’t explain. These can all be symptoms of an underlying vision problem that could be improved through Vision Therapy.
