Comprehensive Vision Exams
All patients receive a comprehensive vision exam, which includes a complete examination and review of the patient's health and ocular history. It is recommended that patients schedule a comprehensive eye exam annually for early diagnosis of eye conditions and to update corrective lens prescriptions.
Vision therapy uses various procedures and exercises to improve eye conditions and eye function. Not to be confused with exercises aimed at strengthening the eye muscles, vision therapy improves binocular function and the ability to process visual information. Depending on patient diagnosis, Dr. Ikeda will treat any existing eye conditions using various vision therapy techniques including orthopic, behavioral, visual processing, perception therapy, sensory learning, syntonic phototherapy, and others. Vision therapy sessions usually last anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour scheduled once or twice per week.
Patients who have suffered any ailment, disease, or injury which has resulted in a vision impairment require visual rehabilitation. During rehabilitation, patients will undergo various treatments and vision therapies to restore their visual abilities to an optimal level of function.
Computer Vision Treatment
Computer vision treatment uses a specialized computer system and software program to improve binocular vision and treat eye conditions such as amblyopia. This software tracks eye movement, visual cognition, and binocular vision, while both assessing and treating conditions. Though software is available for at home purchase and use, it is recommended that patients complete computer vision treatment sessions under the supervision of an eye care professional.
Sports vision therapy aims to reduce the risk of injury and to improve the eye function of athletes by enhancing both visual perceptual skills and visual motor skills. Using visual acuity tests and corrective eyewear to modify vision, Dr. Ikeda also enhances the function of athletes' eyes using vision therapy treatments to better develop motor skills and cognitive perception of visual information.
