Convergence insufficiency is a very common condition among children. It is a problem where the eyes have a strong tendency to drift outwards when they are reading. When this happens, your child will begin to experience double vision. We are proud to provide treatment for children that suffer from convergence insufficiency.
Many children are able to avoid the effects of convergence insufficiency by using extra effort to make their eyes turn back in. The extra effort, however, can lead to symptoms such as eye strain, blurred vision, double vision, loss of concentration, and frequent loss of place when reading.
There are many different treatment methods for convergence insufficiency. One method is vision therapy, and we have activities that will help their eyes focusing correctly and teach their eyes the proper way focus. We can also provide children with glasses that are designed to improve convergence insufficiency.
Our goal is to help your child so that they have minimal symptoms of convergence insufficiency. We understand how important vision is to everyone, and that is why we are committed to helping your child see clearly. Once we accurately assess and diagnose your child, we will develop a strategy to help their vision.
