The Theory and Practice of Syntonic Phototherapy: A Review

  title={The Theory and Practice of Syntonic Phototherapy: A Review},
  author={Larry B. Wallace},
The article provides an introduction and basic overview on the theory and practice of Syntonic Optometry. Syntonics is derived from “syntony,” which means to “bring into balance”. It is believed that specific light frequencies entering the eye can balance the autonomic and endocrine systems. These systems serve as the neuro-physiological foundation to visual motor function. The pathways of ocular light stimulation will be reviewed, as well as current scientific models of how light effects…

Photometric and Colorimetric Evaluation of Phototherapy Instruments for Syntonic Treatment of Visual Anomalies

This study analyzes four devices often used in clinical practice in terms of spectral power distribution, illuminance levels at the corneal plane, and both theoretical photopic and melanopic contributions to the visual system and finds substantial difference in color appearance among the same configurations.

The need for an evidence‐based approach to the acceptance and use of active amblyopia treatments is discussed and the techniques and evidence base for a range of these methods are looked at.

Changes in the Brain Activity and Visual Performance of Patients with Strabismus and Amblyopia after a Compete Cycle of Light Therapy

Only a suffering brain and a visual pathway which needs to be enabled can benefit from LTH, and enhancement in the visual performance of SA patients was found, whereas deterioration of the phoria state and a decrease in the amount of stereopsis was seen in HCs.

Cortical Activity at Baseline and During Light Stimulation in Patients With Strabismus and Amblyopia

LS provokes a state of malleability in the brain of SA patients, by increasing the cortical connectivity, enhancing neural activation and bringing to balance the interhemispheric communication, which converts it into a potential brain stimulator that should be considered as a complementary therapy in the treatment of these patients.

A Multi-Modality Treatment Approach in Vision Therapy for a Patient with Form Deprivation Adult Strabismic Amblyopia and Nystagmus: A Case Report

A multi-modality treatment approach in vision therapy is presented, which resulted in improvement of visual acuity, stereopsis and other components of vision for an adult with form deprivation strabismic amblyopia and nystagmus.

Using Artificial Intelligence to Simulate Brain Function, Enhance the Etiology of Diabetes and Cancer, and more Precisely, Effectively and Remotely Screen and Treat the Patient

The author discusses in this paper how this cognitive technology known by the brand name ‘Strannik’ can, in principle, be used to advance the etiology of a wide range of pathologies including diabetes, diabetic comorbidities and cancers; and how it may offer a means of remotely (online) screening and treating patients in the post-CoVid-19 world.
