METHODS A total of 175 subjects with normal(More)
PURPOSE To report the effectiveness of various forms of vision therapy/orthoptics in improving accommodative amplitude and facility in children with symptomatic convergence insufficiency (CI) and co-existing accommodative dysfunction. METHODS In a randomized clinical trial, 221 children aged 9 to 17 years with symptomatic CI were assigned to one of four(More)

Our goal was to investigate whether there is a relationship between the severity of the clinical signs of CI and symptom level reported in children with a three-sign symptomatic CI. METHODS The Convergence(More)
PURPOSE To determine the frequency and types of vision disorders associated with concussion, and to determine the success rate of vision therapy for these conditions in two private practice settings. METHODS All records over an 18-month period of patients referred for post-concussion vision problems were reviewed from two private practices. Diagnoses of(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether treatment of symptomatic convergence insufficiency (CI) has an effect on Academic Behavior Survey (ABS) scores. METHODS The ABS is a six-item survey developed by the Convergence Insufficiency Treatment Trial Group that quantifies the frequency of adverse school behaviors and parental concern about school performance on an(More)
PURPOSE To study the effectiveness of pencil pushups treatment (PPT) for the treatment of convergence insufficiency in a clinical situation. METHODS PPT was prescribed for use at home for 6 weeks for 25 subjects with convergence insufficiency. RESULTS Twelve of the subjects returned for follow-up. Seven of 12 (58%) subjects showed a clinically(More)
