It depends on which therapy they have you do, as there are a few different ones. Sometimes they work on your balance and other times they work on reading or watching stuff to see how your eyes move, then try to correct it.

I won't say it's easy, because it's not. It can be frustrating at times, but overall I've been told it's awkward because they have you do some weird stuff. I definitely would suggest going. Hopefully it helps!

Unfortunately I can't find much information on what happens as it depends greatly on what they will be focusing on. But, I think it will be fine. Just eye exercises and sometimes seeing how well your hand-eye coordination is.

Best of luck and feel free to update once you have gone.
