Simply Visio offers a proven e-training to increase your reading ability!
E-training improves your vision
Simply Visio has developed a training you can do yourself at home. Simple, proven successful and 100% safe. Even if you are already under treatment of an eye doctor, an optometrist or an orthoptist. All you need is a PC or tablet.
As you age, your vision changes. You can develop eye conditions that can affect your eyesight. The risk of eye diseases increases and may obstruct your active lifestyle and diminish your independence. For example reading and recognising faces become difficult or even impossible. These are some of the eye diseases that may occur when getting older:
Macular Degeneration is a disease that gradually destroys sharp, central vision. Central vision is needed for seeing objects clearly and for common daily tasks such as reading and driving.
Glaucoma is a group of diseases that can damage the eye’s optic nerve and result in vision loss and blindness. It is usually associated with high pressure in the eye and affects side or peripheral vision.
The e-training consists of two phases. These have been designed by experts with a long history in clinical research and hands-on experience in low vision. The training programme is customised to your needs and you will be able to adjust the font size and colour.
The programme starts with a self-assessment test measuring your reading ability. Based on the assessment, we design a customised training plan according to the user’s responses. Systematic, easy-to-hard exercises for 6 weeks, 5 days per week, 30 minutes per day. With simple exercises you will train the remaining healthy retina and the Preferred Retinal Locus (PRL).
Once you have completed the PRL training (phase 1), we propose you to continue to phase 2: reading exercises that are specially designed for each user.
In this section, you’ll read sentences and paragraphs. The aim is to further develop your reading ability and speed.
First scientific results of vision rehabilitation have been presented by Simply Visio founder Dr. Murat Erbezci at ‘the 5th International Congress on Low Vision and the Brain’ in Berlin in 2018. He revealed significant improvement in the patients reading abilities, as well as overall vision.
When having eye conditions or eye diseases it’s important to consult a specialist. Has your eye doctor, optometrist or optician never mentioned this training? This may be because Simply Visio has just innovated this software that can be used at home, although the method itself has been used in hospitals and clinics for a long time. It is safe and proven. You can consult your specialist by downloading the method in PDF here and showing it to him/her.
