Adults are the last ones to think that they have a vision issue that needs vision therapy. After all, most adults probably have finished their education, and have a career in anything from a profession to an at-home parent.
Statistically, the visual system tends to remain stable between the ages of 18 and 35. However, individual visual issues can occur; periodic visual evaluations are recommended.
Although it is true that once an adult reaches the ages of 40 - 60, Presbyopia develops (inability to see at close distances) which usually shows up as difficulty to read a book, the numbers on a cell phone, or the computer screen within an arm’s distance. This happens to adults, because as the lens of the eye ages, it becomes inflexible and/or changes shape. Most middle-aged or older adults will need glasses/contacts to compensate for Presbyopia. In addition to wearing glasses, adults may need vision therapy.
