What we treat


Many times after a stroke, patients have numerous vision and vestibular deficits which can include visual field loss, poor eye movements, difficulty with balance, reduced reading, and poor ability to understand visual concepts. At our facility we evaluate and treat all of these disorders with a very high success rate.

Have You Suffered From A Stroke Or Other Neurological Brain Damage That Might Have Resulted In A Vision Disorder?

If you are affected by this type of vision disorder you may run into objects, trip or fall, knock things over, lose your place when reading, or be surprised by people or objects that seem to appear suddenly out of nowhere. You may even become afraid of venturing out in public, often because you may easily get lost in crowded areas.

VRT Is Based On Several Decades Of Scientific Research And Has Specifically Been Developed To Help You.

  • VRT is the only commercially available FDA-cleared therapy designed to restore vision loss due to neurological brain damage.
  • VRT is a prescription therapy that is clinically supported through decades of research and 20 clinical studies, including a 302 patient study in which notable improvements were seen in over 70% of the patients.
  • Therapy is personalized for the individual vision deficit and updated monthly.
  • VRT does not require surgery or medication of any kind.
  • Therapy is done at home on the patient’s own computer and on their own schedule.
  • Improvement does not depend on how long ago their vision loss occurred (Efficacy is independent of lesion age).
  • VRT is designed to strengthen the visual information processing of residual neuronal structures that have survived following acute lesions of the nervous system resulting from trauma, stroke, inflammation, or elective surgery for removal of brain tumors. By repeated activation through the course of the therapy, patients use the program to train and improve their impaired visual functions, and thus regain useful vision in the area of the visual field deficit. VRT is performed on a computer at home twice daily, six days a week for six months. During each session, patients focus on a central point displayed on the screen and respond every time they see light stimuli appear elsewhere on the screen. The light stimuli are typically presented along the border of the intact and damaged visual field. The therapy is monitored and updated monthly by NovaVision Clinical Staff as therapy progresses and vision is improved. VRT is provided by NovaVision in a therapy suite with its NeuroEyeCoach compensation therapy. VRT addresses the restoration of lost vision and NeuroEyeCoach addresses patients’ difficulties with eye movements and their ability to integrate visual information. While VRT helps to recover visual functions and enlarge the visual field, NeuroEyeCoach enables the patient to make the most of their remaining vision; the two therapies therefore complement each other and are provided in one therapy suite to maximize patient benefit.
