Binocular vision, also referred to as eye-teaming, is a common issue affecting children with dyslexia. Binocular vision dysfunction can lead to several symptoms, including eyestrain, headaches, double vision, difficulties with computer use, reading problems, and issues with mobility and balance. If you or your child is experiencing binocular dysfunction, schedule an appointment at Eyes For Wellness in Indianapolis, IN.  Dr. Mary VanHoy will evaluate your child’s or your vision to determine whether or not they are experiencing eye-teaming issues and provide treatment accordingly.

Binocular Vision Dysfunction in Children and Adults 

Binocular vision deficiency, such as convergence insufficiency or convergence excess, can affect children at a young age, negatively affecting their capability to read and write. Kids with lazy eyes (amblyopia) or eye turn (strabismus) have binocular vision deficiency and cannot utilize both eyes simultaneously. This condition is best diagnosed by a functional/developmental optometrist like Dr. VanHoy.

Adults can also suffer from binocular vision deficiency resulting from a concussion, stroke, or traumatic brain injury. During this assessment, several aspects of your vision will be examined, allowing Dr. VanHoy to recommend the most effective treatment tailored to your unique set of symptoms and visual history.
