Good news! I am thrilled to announce that Bright Eyes Family Vision Care is now offering Vivid Vision Virtual Reality-based vision therapy system for home use. For a year we have offered Vivid Vision in our Bright Eyes Kids clinic in new Tampa and I have been extremely impressed with the benefits of the system. Vivid Vision uses computer-generated virtual reality to deliver the well-established vision therapy treatments for conditions such as strabismus and amblyopia. We have already seen several impressive upgrades to the system. If fact, you may have seen the multiple news segments showcasing the benefits for both children and adults.
Well, after much waiting, I am very excited that Bright Eyes is among the first in the world to offer this ground-breaking treatment at use at home in addition to the office. This will allow for patients to receive virtual reality vision therapy treatment more frequently and more conveniently than before.
Currently, the Vivid Vision Home therapy runs on either the Samsung Gear VR (shown left) or the more expensive Oculus Rift. It will be coming to Google Daydeam and HTC Vive as well.
It should be pointed out that for the patient’s safety, Vivid Vision Home therapy must be performed under the supervision of an eye doctor specially trained in vision therapy. An initial visual evaluation is necessary to determine the correct diagnosis and treatment options. Vivid Vision Home should only be used within the context of a vision therapy program. As with all medical devices, it should be used as instructed. It is possible to over do it!
