What is the average cost of vision therapy?

Filed in Category Pediatric Specialists

I’m an adult considering vision therapy for a mild inward deviation in my eyes when alternating dominance, thus causing binocular vision or diplopia (double vision).

It is unlikely that it will be covered by my vision insurance, so I’m wondering what and how much does the cost of this vision therapy can range from, or has cost those of you that have had it in the past.

My goal is to have greater visual acuity in intense focus and aiming sports, i.e., bow hunting, pistol shooting, and billiard games. Currently when focusing with my dominant eye, my left eye turns inward across and past my aiming point. Especially if I am using the tops of my eyes.

Thank you everyone!!

    I would have thought that would be covered. I can understand why Lasik wouldn’t be, but you have a medical issue, try your regular health insurance as double vision can be a little dangerous and your doctor should say it’s necessary.

    Vision therapy can cost up to $4,000 at your optometrists office. For kids. But there is a better place where it only cost $232.00 for both adults and kids >>>>>>>> http://www.naturaleyecare.com/vis-ther-adult.asp

    This is actually a medical problem and would be covered by your medical insurance. I work for a group of pediatric ophthalmologists and see patients with your condition all day long. All you should have to pay is your specialist copay.

    The cost of vision therapy will vary depending upon what needs to be done and how long therapy is required. The cost is similar to what you would pay a psychologist for psychological therapy, occupational therapist or any other therapist. Insurance tends to make up its own rules here….and may be dependent upon what your employer has signed up for within the companies insurance plan. I would figure appropximately $100-150/session with additional fees for equipment and supplemental testing. Most non-strabismic (no eye turn), non-lazy eye therapy should take approximately 12-24 visits (more if there is a vision information processing component). Different parts of the county will differ on cost with the East and West coast usually costing a bit more.
