Title: 
Computerized Vision Therapy for Home and Office Treatment of Accommodative & Vergence Disorders, & Amblyopia
Abstract: 

Vision therapy or orthoptics is the standard treatment for symptomatic accommodative-vergence anomalies and amblyopia. Computerization of vision therapy has improved treatment results by: standardizing protocols; providing positive or negative reinforcement based upon responses; eliminating experimental (therapist) bias in research and/or therapy; and standardizing stimuli and methodology for diagnosis/treatment. This paper reviews the literature regarding the efficacy of the automated treatment of accommodative vergence anomalies, and amblyopia. The use of the Computer Orthopter, its home based program, HTS and amblyopia programs are discussed in detail.
