Vision Training

 

“Orthoptics” and “Vision Training” are not the same thing

Orthoptics, which literally means “straightening of the eyes,” dates back to the 1850s and generally limits its scope to eye-muscle training and the cosmetic straightening of eyes. Vision training includes orthoptics, but has advanced to include training and rehabilitation of the eye-brain connections involved in vision. Clinical and research developments in vision training have been closely allied with developments in neuroscience throughout the 20th century.
