1. People need help.
As many as 80 million Americans have a binocular vision problem that can only be resolved through vision therapy. Not just children, but many adults avoid reading, learning, or have serious limitations. Fewer than 5,000 O.D.s offer those services—an enormous unserved body of children and adult patients you could be serving
2. It's good for your practice.
Once established, well-run vision therapy practices produce net profits between 45 and 55 percent margins. Most costs are related to training and salaries for the therapists who deliver the therapy under the doctor’s supervision. Many training programs now exist for doctors and therapists, including the Ideal Vision Institute’s Quick Start Vision Therapy course
3. You'll change lives.
Vision Therapy changes lives. Every patient who completes therapy will have an entirely new future available to them. Children will excel at school after years of frustration and failure. Adults will suddenly be able to expand their career opportunities, return to college or take training to improve their financial and personal future. The issue is getting started. What most optometry schools offer in vision therapy training is pretty hit and miss, often students never get to follow a case through completion, so they never see what a difference VT actually makes.
