What is Vivid Vision?
Vivid vision is a new powerful virtual reality technology used to apply this vision therapy. It is designed to motivate children and adults to improve vision and perceptual skills through 3D tests and challenges. The behavioural optometrist and vision therapist tailor and monitor your progress through these interactive challenges and exercises to improve and correct visual problems such as amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (eye turn) and eye coordination disorders.
This virtual technology is very motivating and improves vision therapy outcomes.
Eyecare Plus Altona and Vision Advantage is proud to be one of only 370 practices world wide to have the Vivid Vision virtual reality vision training program.
How is Vivid Vision different than other Vision Therapy?
Vivid Vision is the first device to combine vision therapy training with virtual reality exercises and challenges. They are delivered through a virtual reality headset are expertly constructed to improve visual skills for people with amblyopia and strabismus, improve depth perception (3D) skills and improve many other visual problems such as visual memory. The technology stimulates the brain to use both eyes together as a team and strengthen binocular vision and depth perception.
