Vision : Vision training by an eye care specialist in vision therapy can be helpful. Also, there is an at home program that can improve vision, www.Revitalvision.Com the program is $995 and needs to be prescribed and monitored by a physician. You can contact the company to find a doctor near you who prescribes this program. It does take a great deal of commitment. Our patients that have the best results commit to 40 minute sessions every other day for 60-90 days. We have seen patients improve 3-7 lines on the eye chart.

Those who improve with this program almost certainly do not have classical amblyopia. Check with your ophthalmologist, especially a strabismus expert, if you are considering this program.
