Syntonic Phototherapy Evaluation


After a comprehensive eye exam, the doctor may recommend syntonic therapy for individuals with specific symptoms. The doctor will evaluate if the patient is experiencing:

Visual Stress, Discomfort, or Strain

Headaches or Migraines

Convergence Insufficiency: when the eyes have difficulty working together to focus on a nearby object

Photosensitivity: Sensitivity to light. 

Binocular Vision Disorders: when the eyes struggle to work together effectively.

Focusing Issues or Reading Difficulties: especially those associated with eye tracking or visual processing issues.

Visual Processing Disorders: difficulties with visual processing and the ability to interpret and understand visual information. 

Brain Injury: or other neurological conditions affecting their visual function.

Strabismus (Crossed Eyes) or Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)

The Doctor will Prescribe Syntonics Phototherapy to Help:

• Improve convergence abilities

• Reduce sensitivity and improve tolerance to light

• Enhance coordination and alignment

• Rehabilitate individuals who have experienced traumatic brain injuries 

• Address specific visual challenges related to reading

• Treat lazy or crossed eyes

Syntonics Phototherapy Usually Goes Along with Other Types of Vision Therapy Interventions:

Syntonics Phototherapy is often used alongside other vision therapy techniques to help patients with various eye conditions. 

Vision Therapy can benefit those of all ages who have a variety of conditions related to learning, concussion, and/or brain injury. Whether you or your child's annual appointment is held at NYC Pupil or another provider, the Doctor will see you or your child to determine prevalent issues and select necessary testing for your evaluation. The goal of this examination is to assess whether your visual information is being received and processed comfortably, clearly, accurately, and efficiently. The doctors will see if both of your eyes must be able to focus properly, align correctly, and track efficiently, so that you do not experience double vision. 

Based on the assessment, the doctor will recommend the appropriate length and frequency of Vision Therapy. To learn more, you can check out our Vision Therapy/Rehabilitation for Children & Adults page.
