Abstract

Home Vision Therapy for Children is intended to provide a course of activities for the child with the parent as the "therapist" or monitor. Brief explanations of certain conditions affecting youngsters are provided to hopefully give the parent a better understanding of their child's visual problems. Pacific University College of Optometry's Vision Therapy Service has hundreds of activities for many different visual impairments. My goal is to provide a condensed section of activities more specific to children who are below kindergarten age or ability. This will provide Pacific interns an opportunity to more efficiently choose and organize appropriate activities for their patients. Home Vision Therapy for Children is at this point oriented towards amblyopia and anti-suppression. There is a need for additional areas to be addressed such as ocular motility and convergence activities.
