Therapeutic lenses may be prescribed as as a standalone treatment or as part of your vision therapy program.
Benefits of Therapeutic Lenses and Prisms
Lenses and prisms enhance the ability to concentrate, feel grounded, navigate through space, and think more clearly by taking away visual-auditory/ balance-body mismatches.
Who are Therapeutic Lenses For?
Both adults and children can benefit from therapeutic lenses. People who struggle with visual problems such as double vision, low vision, strabismus or visual issues caused by head injury can see their visual perception greatly improved with lenses or prisms.
Types of Lenses
The therapeutic lenses include:
- yoked prisms
- non-yoked prisms
- specialized powers
- Chromagen lenses, which help to calm the visual system when the scotopic sensitivity occurs (problems with words moving while reading) and also when there is a color deficiency.
Dr. Amy Thomas is certified to prescribe therapeutic lenses and prisms through the Mind-Eye Connection in Chicago.
“Amy Thomas is a treat! She is not only a good listener with great people skills, she has tests I’ve never experienced for diagnosing vision problems. After visiting many medical people, I think I’m on the way to understanding and solving my double vision.”
