What is Visual Processing?
Our visual system functions through interconnected pieces. What occurs in the eye is considered to be the hardware component of vision and what occurs in the brain is considered to be the software component. This is a bit simplistic because in humans at least 10 to 15% of the information regarding what we see is passed on to the visual centers of the brain from sources other than the eyes. We refer to this as subcortical vision, and it includes pivotal centers for balance and movement.

Our role at PressVision at Family Eyecare Associates is not to provide alternative teaching methods. Rather, it’s to help develop the readiness skills necessary to be more fully responsive to educational interventions.
We have a strong tradition of collaborating with occupational therapists, particularly those therapists who have a solid background and experience in sensory integration. OT (occupational therapy) and VT (vision therapy) are not a substitute for one another, but rather complement each other.
