The Vision Therapy Center has released its 2016 list of 105 optometrist-approved toys. The list includes toys that promote visual skills, and does not include video devices and home gaming systems.

By spending excessive amounts of time on hand-held video devices and home gaming systems, there is a potential for worsening vision problems such as focusing issues, poor eye teaming and even nearsightedness.

The Vision Therapy Center of Brookfield and Madison, Wisconsin, has released its 2016 Optometrist-Approved Gift List featuring 105 children’s toys. The list includes toys and games that promote visual skills such as hand-eye coordination, visualization, and space perception.

The list does not include hand-held video devices and home gaming systems, which can increase the risk of computer eyestrain.

“By spending excessive amounts of time on hand-held video devices and home gaming systems, there is a potential for worsening vision problems such as focusing issues, poor eye teaming and even nearsightedness,” said Dr. Kellye Knueppel, developmental optometrist and owner of The Vision Therapy Center.

The 2016 Optometrist-Approved Gift List is arranged by visual skill and includes ideas for preschoolers through adults. It was developed by Dr. Knueppel and her team of vision therapists.
