Austin Vision Therapy Examinations for the Proper Diagnosis
Our Austin vision therapy is administered strictly to those who’ve been properly examined to ensure appropriate treatment for the relevant condition. Our therapy programs address problems relating to vision and learning disabilities similar to dyslexia in Austin thus enhancing visual dominance and ultimately assisting learning ability.
The Right Type of Examination is Key
There are individuals who choose treatments without adequate knowledge of what the problem actually is. This is because there are symptoms that overlap across multiple conditions. All too often, someone may engage in treatment for dyslexia or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD), when they actually have a vision problem.
Proper examination in this case helps the doctor know exactly what to prescribe. The wrong treatment may only deal with the symptoms and fail to address the root cause of the problem resulting in little to no success. At the same time, giving the wrong treatment may lead to further complications and wasted time and expense.
Seeing the Whole Picture
It’s not farfetched to hear that a patient’s condition has worsened after initiating a particular treatment. This may be especially true with pharmaceutical intervention. There are cases in which vision disorders have been addressed but there are still problems related to dyslexia or ADHD. It is possible to have dyslexia and vision problems concurrently. The best thing to do is get the right treatment for both conditions to maximize success.
It’s important to note that vision and concentration are interrelated. If eye movements aren’t properly coordinated and the eyes cannot focus adequately, it will affect one’s ability to concentrate, something that can be easily mistaken for ADHD.
In children, ADHD and visual focusing deficits adversely affect learning ability. This can span from concentration issues to restlessness. These children often have problems with reading, spelling, listening, and math. Since these areas are part and parcel of the learning experience, the child won’t be able to cope with the learning demands like other children and often act out. The best option is to work with a doctor who will properly diagnosis the root cause of the problem before offering any treatment.
