Syntonics, or syntonic phototherapy, is an innovative and non-invasive treatment method using specific light wavelengths to stimulate the visual system.

This therapy can be incredibly beneficial for children facing challenges related to learning difficulties, trauma, stress, or visual processing issues.

How can Syntonic Therapy Can Help Your Child?

Syntonic phototherapy complements vision therapy, specialty lenses, or prisms to enhance various aspects of vision and visual processing.

Here's how it optimizes visual function:

  1. Improves Visual Acuity and Contrast: Syntonic therapy enhances visual acuity, making images sharper, clearer, and more defined. It also helps improve contrast sensitivity, enabling better differentiation between shades and colors.
  2. Increases Visual Attention: By addressing how the eyes process light, syntonics can improve focus, making it easier to maintain concentration for longer periods.
  3. Reduces Eye Strain: Individuals experiencing eye strain due to extended screen time or other factors can benefit from syntonic therapy, which relaxes the eyes and reduces fatigue and discomfort.
  4. Supports Learning Abilities: This therapy has displayed promising results in assisting children facing learning difficulties. By optimizing their visual capabilities, syntonic therapy contributes to a more conducive environment for learning and academic performance improvement.
