Many vision problems do not require surgery for correction. In these situations, vision therapy is often an option. Vision therapy is a series of vision exercises and activities that improve eye movements and the way the eyes work together as a team. It is designed to resolve vision problems that can contribute to eyestrain, blur, shifting images, and double vision. Inaccurate eye movements can cause trouble with keeping place while reading and difficulty reading long enough to complete homework or computer work for school or a career. This therapy can also be used as an effective treatment for problems like lazy eye, crossed eyes, or double vision.
Dr. Ceonzo and the Visionary Optometry of Long Island team take routine eye exams very seriously. During a yearly or bi-yearly examination, our Melville patients will receive a patient history review, a series of vision and eye tests, assessments of eye focusing, eye teaming, and movement, and an eye health evaluation. Our optometrist will discuss any additional testing that may be required to diagnose an eye disease or condition. Call us a today at (631) 791-5155 to schedule an appointment.
Many patients with vision problems heartily embrace the idea of enjoying vision correction without having to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses. Not all of these patients, however, are good candidates for PRK or Lasik surgery, the two standard surgeries used to alter the way the cornea of the eye refracts light. If that describes you, don't fret -- because here at Visionary Optometry of Long Island, we offer an advanced corneal reshaping technique known as orthokeratology, or Ortho-K. This non-surgical technique can produce changes to the way your cornea refracts light.
