Magic eyes vision training for children

Magic eyes vision training for children

The Magic eyes program was developed in response to the immense need for an easy and effective methodology to address the growing prevalence of vision problems in children all over the world. Research shows that virtually all children (98.8%) at age 6 have normal eyesight. However from age 7 or 8 to the mid teen years children with near sight (myopia) skyrocket to about 25% at age 16.

More about atropine eye drops

First of all, Atropine is a non-specific muscarinic antagonist. It is unknown at this time how it acts to inhibit myopic progression.

However, studies usually cover only the effects as long as the drops are applied and important information is left out, such as the Louis Tong, (2008) report that myopia actually rebounds up to two times faster when the Atropine drops are discontinued.

More about ortho-k lenses

Orthokeratology (OK) lenses are a mechanical process that seeks to mould the cornea into a flatter shape and alter the focusing ability of the eye. Special custom-made hard lenses are worn at night to achieve this.

Virtually all studies agree that myopia reduction with Ortho-K lenses is only temporary. In fact, Ortho-K lenses are described as “Corneal Reshaping Treatment for Temporary Reduction of Myopia.” In other words, the effect lasts as long as you wear the lenses but when you stop wearing them the cornea slowly reverts back to what is was before.

Vision and learning

Most of learning comes via the visual system. Research shows that
as much as 75% of what children learn comes to them in the form
of visual information. In the early years, children learn more by doing
and moving but the longer they stay within the school system, more
and more their of learning habits become more auditory and visual.
In particular, reading becomes one of the main inputs for learning, so
how many books would you need to read before you get a doctorate
degree?

Convergence insufficiency - the forgotten test.


Convergence insufficiency is a condition that occurs when the eyes
converge in front of or behind what you are looking at. This makes
reading very difficult since the words are doubled and may move
around. It was first documented by ophthalmology pioneer von
Graefe in 185

A "lazy eyes" can be trained

The “Lazy Eye” problem develops so slowly that you don’t notice that you are using only one eye. Parents are usually the first to notice that their child keeps turning his head in favour of only one eye. The brain has simply decided that it is easier to use one eye and the other eye becomes neglected due to
disuse and becomes “Lazy.”

Squint can be trained away

The Magic Eyes Vision Training approach assumes that the child’s brain is
perfectly capable of controlling the eyes. So the focus is on re-educating the
brain to change the way it coordinates the child’s eyes. Strabismus is best
solved with a mind/body approach. In fact Vision Training research shows
that 80% of Strabismus cases can be treated successfully with Vision
Training exercises and, in fact, this has been known since the 1940s.
