Does vision therapy work, and is it worth it?

Does anyone have experience with vision therapy? I have difficulty focusing both eyes at the same time, and I have been told by optometrists that I basically just have to live with this. But I recently read about vision therapy, which seems promising. If you have gone through it, did it work, and was it worth the time and expense?

It's a little hard to find information relevant to my situation because most of what I've read is about vision therapy for children. However, the optometrist near me who offers the service has told me they treat adults too and that it's never too late.
I have read this question
, where the poster's symptoms match mine pretty well. Vision therapy is suggested in the comments, but no results are described.
Also, some people, apparently, consider vision therapy to be along the lines of chiropractic and acupuncture in terms of not being based on traditional medicine and perhaps not offering proven results. Am I better off going to a traditional ophthalmologist?
