Binocular Vision

'Binocular Vision'

Binocular Vision Software

Binocular Vision is the ability to focus on one object with both eyes. Binocular Vision is achieved by the coordinated use of both eyes to ‘see’ a single three-dimensional image with respective surroundings.
One often wonders how two eyes in a person can coordinate and focus at one point- It includes a complex binocular theory. Actually, it is teamwork performed with the synergy of eyes and the brain! A clear view, possible with one eye is equivalent to vision by both eyes because the individual views overlap significantly with the view from the other eye. These images fuse to appear as a single image through a complex process retina and neurosensory images interpretation by the brain through the visual pathway.
Binocular Vision gives a precise perception of depth for 3-D vision, focuses on a mere object, and processes proportionate images in the brain.

How Does Binocular Vision Develop?

This ability for precise Binocular Vision begins to develop after birth. Significant focus is achieved by 6 months in infants. However, the accuracy and sharpness of images acquired along with depth perception ​continues to predominantly develop by 4 years, and gradually improve to its final stage by 9 years of age.

What happens when Binocular Vision is impaired?

Abnormalities of Binocular Vision are common visual disorders. They are generally associated with symptoms such as headaches, eye strain, eye pain, blurred vision, poor depth perception, and occasionally double vision. Some common Binocular Vision impairment conditions include:
  • Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) or Digital Eye Strain (DES)
  • Lazy Eye or Amblyopia

Reasons for Binocular Vision impairment

The brain converges overlapping images into one clear picture, but both the eyes must be in perfect alignment, working synchronously. When the two images do not colligate, the brain confuse to process the non-aligned images or inputs. In response, the brain forces the eye muscles to produce the alignment and fix the problem. When this happens often, it puts a lot of strain on the eye muscles. The eyes then become tired and sore, leading to a variety of painful symptoms such as headaches.

Three common reasons why Binocular Vision might appear are:

  • Reduced vision in one eye.
  • Problems with the brain comparing images from both eyes.
  • Loss of coordination of movement between the two eyes.
  • Weak focusing abilities of the eye muscles

Symptoms of Binocular Vision impairment

Some binocular vision impairment symptoms include:

  • Reading fatigue
  • Reading over and over for comprehension
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Using a ruler or finger to guide through lines
  • Vibration of letters
  • Headache
  • Eye pain and soreness
  • Poor perception of depth
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Difficulty with glare
  • Difficulty while driving due to inability to judge distances and glare of headlights at night
  • Difficulty while stepping down the staircase

Why Would You Need Binocular Vision Therapy?

Reading small texts is likely difficult to read! A child may have to read over and over again, thus slowing them down. To some extent, it is normal, but not after a certain point. The tendency to read text, again and again, may reduce comprehension; thus, children may find themselves dull at studies and go into depression. The children often confuse underlying Binocular Vision disorder with learning disabilities that may go undetected for years. Detecting Binocular Vision disorder early can prevent a lot of struggle for a child and their family.

New research has shown that even adults can now be treated for undiagnosed/uncorrected Binocular Vision disorders with binocular assessment software in form of games programmed to address specific brain regions involves in the eye-to-brain synchronization called neuro adaption. These software-based eye treatments intend to stimulate those specific brain regions to activate or improve their skills, eventually manifesting signs of improved vision.

If you can relate to any of the above symptoms, you need to consult your eye specialist to seek the best binocular vision therapy to improve the follwing binocular vision eye disorders.

 Amblyopia / Lazy Eye

Amblyopia, commonly known as ‘Lazy eyes’ is a condition in which the vision of one eye or both eyes is reduced. It is caused when the brain cannot recognize sight from one eye.

 

Computer Vision Syndrome/ Digital Eye Strain

The use of digital media is rising across all age groups and more and more people spend tedious working hours on screen. This builds intense eye pressure, resulting in various eye disorders comprising binocular vision problems.

 

Treatments

Binocular vision problems may occur before or after cataract surgery or laser surgery to remove glasses.  Fortunately, most binocular vision problems can be easily treated through binocular vision glasses, Binocular vision therapy, or surgery.
