5.  Can’t we just do this at home?

 

Vision training programs are individualised and sequenced for the patient, and professional guidance and frequent monitoring is required for success. You also need to be able to modify certain procedures when they cannot be done efficiently or effectively. When attempted by patients without guidance, poor visual habits may actually be reinforced. Trying to do vision training exclusively at home is like walking into a classroom and working out from notes and exercise books how to do mathematics. You have no idea of the sequence of the exercises, whether you are getting the right answer, when to increase the difficulty of the tasks and whether you are tackling the tasks the right way. Once a professional guides you, it becomes reasonable to reinforce what you have learned on your own.
