Vision therapy for children with special educational needs
Vision therapy involves the rehabilitation of vision impairments, that cannot be corrected through standard solutions, e.g., with appropriately selected spectacles, contact lenses and surgical procedures. The task of vision therapists is to prepare a set of pleoptic and orthoptic exercises, as part of the therapeutic process, that is tailored to the specific impairment and needs of the patient.
