More than half of patients that are enrolled in a Vision Therapy program with me have a vergence (which means eye coordination) problem. The most common type of vergence problem is called convergence insufficiency. Convergence insufficiency can lead to reading difficulties including seeing double, getting fatigued quickly, feeling like your eyes are not working together, and headaches.
The SVI is a large touch-screen monitor that improves visual abilities for learning problems, sports, amblyopia, and traumatic brain injury. Targets on the screen can be made large or small, dark or faint. We encourage everyone to hit the target in the center – the smaller the target, the more accurate you have to be. If you miss a target, a dot appears on the screen. This gives you instant feedback on where you are actually touching and you are (hopefully) able re-adjust your next target – perhaps reaching further, closer, higher or lower.
