Virtual Reality​

The most important benefit of this technique of visual training is that kids love it. They enjoy the process and in turn, this improves motivation and compliance. It only requires a minimum of parental supervision and visits to our clinic.

Virtual Reality Vision Therapy

Vision Therapy VR training is used to treat a variety of vision problems, typically those involving reduced binocular vision. These include amblyopia (lazy-eye), strabismus (crossed-eyes), or vision suppression (where the patient only uses one eye at a time). More uses for VR Vision Therapy are constantly in development, including treatment of reading difficulties, depth perception, and balance training.

With Vision Therapy, the VR headset delivers a set of eye exercises designed to work your eyes in specific ways. The benefit of this virtual reality training is that it doesn’t feel like hard work; the exercises are contained within games.

Kids love it (and adults, too). They enjoy the process and in turn, this improves motivation and compliance. It only requires a minimum of parental supervision and visits to our clinic.

The benefit of Virtual Reality training over traditional vision training is the level of individualised manipulation that can be achieved. The training exercises can be customised on a case-by-case basis to help achieve an optimum outcome.

How does VR training work?

Traditionally, treatment for lazy-eye was done with eye patches. This helped to wake up the eye affected but was not so useful for building connections between the eyes that are required for healthy binocular vision.

With Virtual Reality Vision Therapy, a VR headset is used to individually control the input that each eye receives. Objects seen by each eye can be changed independent of the other eye and varied as you progress.

Even more so, the treatment can all be completed in the comfort of your own home. You take the VR headset home with you or use your own. All results are sent directly to us and we adjust the exercise program accordingly. This allows for much more prompt and successful progress in treatment than with any traditional method.
