Our perception of the world, and ability to navigate it, is largely done through our vision. When our vision is less than perfect it affects us in more ways than we can imagine. The impact can influence our ability to catch a ball, avoid an accident, or read the next big novel. We constantly rely on the information our eyes provide, so we cannot afford to neglect them. The RightEye system is an important part of our initial evaluation because it provides critical information about eye-brain health.
RightEye is a vision screening and training program that provides instant feedback indicating how well the eyes are working. Technological advances incorporated into this program go far beyond the standard 20/20 vision screening. A person can have 20/20 vision and still have improper eye movements or visual perception, both of which we are able to detect. Depending on results of the evaluation, vision training may be appropriate to strengthen eye muscles, and improve visual reaction time, peripheral range, recognition, accuracy, speed, and smoothness. Computer-based training is fun and engaging, as clients use only their eyes to destroy asteroids approaching a spaceship or pop bubbles through a maze.
RightEye is also able to detect concussions and other brain injuries through the advanced screening. When someone sustains a brain injury, or concussion, the injury is usually indicated in the way the eyes track an object moving on the screen. Irregularities during this screening can actually indicate the areas of the brain that were affected by the concussion. This screening can also help determine when an athlete or person is fully recovered. Concussions can have lasting effects especially for young athletes still in school, and it is often difficult to know when the brain has fully healed and it's safe to get back on the field. RightEye can provide the training that makes the eyes and brain work together, allowing performance to picks up where the athlete left off.
Brain Train clients have used RightEye to assess and strengthen their brain, and address the effects of a wide range of issues, including:
- Visual Acuity
- Reading Difficulties
