Eye Priority offers free screenings for Convergence Insufficiency
Mayo Clinic researchers, as part of a nine-site study, helped discover the best of three currently-used treatments for convergence insufficiency in children.
Convergence insufficiency is a common condition characterized by a person's inability to maintain proper binocular eye alignment on objects as they approach from distance to near. Symptoms may include double vision, eye strain, transient blurred vision, difficulty sustaining near-visual function, abnormal fatigue and headache, corresponding issues in reading and concentrating, which ultimately impact learning.
The findings of the study show children improve faster with structured therapy sessions in a doctor's office, with reinforcement eye exercises at home. Such vision therapy is provided at Ahwatukee's Eye Priority, located at 4810 E. Ray Road. Dr. Kelly de Simone leads to normalized vision in the shortest interval of time - sometimes just 12 weeks.
For more information, call Eye Priority at (480) 893-2300.
