7 reasons why Virtual Reality is great for Vision Therapy

Virtual reality affords us lots of advantages that don't seem very obvious at first. Here is a list of 7 reasons why VR makes sense for us:

 Versatility 

Patients can be sitting, standing and/or moving around freely within a designated space. 

 Control

Full control of elements seen in the amblyopic/strabismic eye. We have total control over everything the patient's eyes see. 

Accesibility/Flexibility

Start activities at the patient's angle of deviation and decrease the angle as they improve.

Targeting a wide range of binocular vision disorders

VR technology is useful for more than just lazy eye! We are working on vergence ranges and jump duction to increase fusion ranges. We'll be sharing more details on this, including research, soon! 

 Cost saving solution

Requires no filters, batteries, or large TV monitors

 Convenience

Distance and near activities all in one device

 Analytics

Vivid Vision premium gives you the ability to track a wide variety of metrics on the patients progress. We're currently working on incorporating real time charts and graphs to allow for a data visualization experience.
