Management of binocular anomalies: efficacy of vision therapy in the treatment of accommodative deficiencies.
M. Rouse. Am J Optom Physiol Opt64 (6):
This paper is a review of the literature supporting vision therapy as an effective treatment mode for accommodative deficiencies. Vision therapy procedures have been shown to improve accommodative function effectively and eliminate or reduce associated symptoms. In addition, the actual physiological accommodative response variables modified by the therapy have been identified, eliminating the possibility of Hawthorne or placebo effects accounting for treatment success. Finally, the improved accommodative function appears to be fairly durable after treatment.
