Vision Training is offered to children with visual functional problems, including amblyopia (lazy eye); strabismus (squint); binocular vision, accommodation and visual tracking dysfunction; visual perception and vision related learning difficulties. The time required for the training is depended on the severity of the problem. Good compliance to the training and communication between trainer and parents are crucial for archiving optimal results.
Children with strabismus (squint) have poor binocular coordination (i.e. the two eyes do not work efficiently as a team) and inadequate depth perception. Our visual systems allow us to perceive 3-dimensional visual images. However, for children with strabismus, their visual world would only be 2-dimensional. Vision training would normalize the coordination of the eyes and facilitate the development of stereopsis/ depth perception.
Children with squint cannot align both eyes accurately on the same fixation point. With the use of game oriented training equipment, children’s eyes can be taught to fixate precisely on the object so that the brain can perceive a fusion image.
Eye-hand coordination exercises can facilitate the development of visual tracking skills and depth perception concepts. Good visual tracking skills enable the eyes to move and locate objects accurately and efficiently.
Through accommodation exercises, children can develop better focusing stability and focus transfer flexibility.
