Vision problems, my behavioural optometrist said that i will need vision therapy. What kind of therapy would this include?

Not usually helpful: Optometrists, a subset, engage in an activity termed "vision therapy" which is lengthy and expensive. They advocate it for a variety of visual fatigue and sometimes optical problems. These exercises have never been subjected to standard clinical tests and there is no proof that they do anything but provide a substantial income to the optometrist. Check first with an ophthalmologist. ...Read more

I think I might have vision problems? I get headaches in class.

Possibly: There are many causes for headaches and vision is generally a minor one. If you notice that things that others can see at a given distance, are blurry to you, then you might need eyeglasses. But a need for glasses rarely by itself leads to headaches. See your ophthalmologist for analysis of this. ...Read more
