Vivid Vision is designed to let your optometrist monitor & control many aspects of your experience live while manipulating your visual experience to correct visual disfunctions & improve visual skills.

What is involved?
The patient wears an Oculus Rift VR headset to immerse them into a computer generated virtual environment. A variety of fun games in which the patient interacts within the virtual environment are played. These games sound just like play but they have in fact been expertly designed to provide stimulation to improve how the patients eyes see and work together.
Each game is designed to target different visual issues, so the optometrist with prescribe the games best suited to a patient's individual needs. The optometrist can directly monitor the patient's performance & manipulate various aspects of the games to select the visual information that each eye receives according to the patient's progress.
