Results: Initial symptoms scores on the scaled questionnaire were 32.8 (SD = 8.1); after therapy they were 20.6 (SD = 11.5). These changes were both clinically and statistically significant. Forty percent were "normalized" and 55% improved. Convergence amplitude improved from 22Delta to 53Delta after treatment, and divergence amplitudes improved from 15Delta to 25Delta. These findings were clinically significant. Lastly, more than 75% of the patients finished the program by 40 sessions (equivalent to 8 weeks).
Conclusion: Automated vision therapy delivered by the HTS system improved convergence and divergence amplitudes with a concomitant reduction in symptoms. The HTS system should be used on those patients with symptoms associated with an accommodative/vergence anomaly when in-office vision therapy supplemented with home therapy is not practical.
