Adults and Binocular Vision Dysfunction – Five Points Vision Therapy Center in Athens

Binocular Vision Dysfunction (BVD) causes a variety of symptoms in adults. Up to 70% of affected men and women with BVD suffer from persistent headaches, 30% suffer from anxiety, and 30% to 50% have persistent symptoms related to a concussion or traumatic brain injury. However, a typical visit to an eye doctor only determines how well each eye can see (known as visual acuity) and not how well the eyes work together as a team (known as binocular vision).

Furthermore, standard binocular vision eye tests only identify major eye misalignments and double vision, rather than subtle misalignments. Only a functional vision exam can diagnose the problems that can detrimentally affect quality-of-life by ensuring that all essential visual skills are working correctly. These include conditions such as double vision, and other problems that affect an individual’s neuro-visual processing.

Contact Five Points Vision Therapy Center today for a functional eye exam, or visit us with your concerns, and we’ll determine the best course of action to treat your visual problems.

Five Points Vision Therapy Center serves patients from Athens, Augusta, Lawrenceville, and Gainesville all throughout Georgia.
