Sanet Vision Integrator at Bright Eyes Vision Clinic
At Bright Eyes Vision Clinic we treat many patients with vision impairments. One of the services we provide is that of vision therapy through the use of the Sanet Vision Integrator. This program helps children with amblyopia or strabismus, or those who have suffered visual acuity due to a brain injury. We find that the Sanet Vision Integrator can have impressive results with both children and adults, allowing them to improve their visual abilities in a surprisingly short amount of time.
What is the Sanet Vision Integrator?
This is a program that combines a large touchscreen with a computer-based program, all linked together to give patients a progressive set of exercises. The patient sits or stands in front of the screen, and the program gives a series of verbal commands. Patients then touch certain parts of the screen after each prompt, which help them to coordinate hand-eye coordination, audio processing, and memory.
The Sanet Vision Integrator has been found to be useful for a number of vision problems, including:
- Strabismus, or crossed eyes
- Amblyopia, or lazy eye
- Visual attention deficit
- Acquired brain injury
- Athletes with visual problems
What Improvements Are Possible?
This vision therapy method has been found to improve many visual abilities, including:
- Hand-eye coordination
- Contrast sensitivity
- Visual reaction time
- Auditory recognition
- Visual recognition
- Span and speed of recognition
In short, this type of vision therapy exercises the pathways between the images the patient sees and the brain, where the information is processed. It then helps the brain to understand and act on this information. The instrument is programmable, allowing our optometrists to change the level of lessons to a progressively more challenging one as the patient’s reactions improve.
Using Vision Therapy
At Bright Eyes Vision Clinic we always prefer to find the root cause of vision problems to treat them, rather than resort to surgery to treat symptoms. Our goal is to allow you vision treatments without resorting to invasive procedures. All of our vision therapy programs are designed to help the eyes and brain to communicate better, helping them to work together to improve vision. Vision therapy sessions last almost an hour, and you’ll see us weekly to help train your eyes and brain.
