Why an visual training?

Have you had a stroke (CVI)? Or a brain haemorrhage? Maybe a tumour? Then you may also suffer from hemianopsia (half-sided blindness),which means that you only see half of what healthy people see. Often it is "only" the left or right side that is completely missing, but sometimes there is also quadrant anopsia, in which case only one corner of the visual field is affected. This half-sided blindness can be very limiting, so you may be unsteady, unable to walk or ride a bike well. The effects are many and varied, but they are often severe for those affected.

How can eye training help?

The exercises of the saccadic training can help to awaken the potential of the eyes by solving various tasks on the computer. Here is an example of such a search task:

Why an visual training

The principle of compensatory eye training is well researched. It is assumed that it is no longer possible to "repair" an affected area of the brain. Unfortunately, it does not yet seem possible for other areas of the brain to take over the visual function. This leaves compensation through the eyes. Here, the eye muscles are trained so that in future they will search the affected visual field automatically, faster and more efficiently. The exercises of the saccadic trainer help to train efficiently through targeted exercises. In addition, training successes can be easily tracked through the statistics. Enclosed you can see the data of a real patient who suffered a right-sided hemianospia after a stroke and who, thanks to the training, had great success and was finally able to ride a bicycle again:

What do customers say?

Here you will find examples of people who, despite hemianospy (half-sided blindness) or a visual neglect, have become more independent and confident in their everyday lives..

What are saccades?

A saccade is one of the three eye movements. It is a fast and sudden eye movement in which the eye spontaneously targets an object, but no information acquisition takes place. When a text is read, the forward jumps of the eye are called saccades (Latin: jerky). It is also referred to as a "jump in the eye". Depending on the reading competency, you have different lengths, with eight to nine letters from one fixation to the next being classified as normal in reading research. In addition to the saccades there are two further eye movement patterns, the regressions and fixation.
