    What is eye teaming?

    In order to have good functional vision, your eyes need to work as a team. Sometimes, however, they’re more like warring siblings.

    EYE TEAMING is the brain’s ability to coordinate your eyes—first to determine where an object is, and then to accurately point at that object.

    People with poor eye teaming often face symptoms including:

    • Headaches
    • Fatigue
    • Clumsiness
    • Lack of coordination

    What can Vision Therapy at Home do for me?

    VTAH can increase your eyes’ “stamina” for handling up-close tasks, such as homework and reading. This can improve concentration and comprehension.

    Feel like you’re in a blur? We get it. But life’s too short to live in a fuzzy world.
