RevitalVision is clinically proven to improve vision in patients suffering from Congenital Nystagmus. For more details press here: Improving Low Vision
In a clinical study, presented at the annual meeting of the ESA (European Strabismus Association) it was found, that 80% of congenital nystagmus patients, who were treated with RevitalVision program have improved their vision in 2 VA lines on average. This significant improvement enabled some of the patients to be qualified for driving licenses.
The research collected data on 28 patients treated in 16 different clinics in 5 countries (Italy, Belgium, Greece, Turkey, and Israel). The complete study is available here.
Nystagmus is a vision condition in which the eyes make repetitive, uncontrolled movements. The condition can be found in roughly 1 out of every 2000 individuals. The uncontrolled movements often result in reduced vision and depth perception and can affect balance and coordination. The Involuntary eye movements occur from side to side, up and down, or in a circular pattern. As a result, both eyes have difficulty in being able to view objects.
When acquired, the Nystagmus is defined by abnormalities of vestibular input that result in periodic rhythmic ocular oscillation of the eyes. Acquired Nystagmus is caused by disease such as multiple sclerosis or by the neurologic function being compromised by a brain tumor or head injury.
Pediatric nystagmus is caused due to the problem in the eyes of infants that that lead to a disruption in the virtual pathways from the brain to the eyes. Nystagmus that develops in infancy is usually from one of three causes. The most common is simple “congenital nystagmus”, meaning completely normal eyes that jiggle.
RevitalVision can improve vision in patients suffering from congenital nystagmus after the age of 9.
