Default Behavioural Optometry

How many of us have benefitted from Behavioural Optometry?

Lenses that helped with light sensitivity made such a difference but perhaps the benefit which returned my world to me was Reading. I read each word separately, ever so slowly and with prescribed glasses the words ran with another, seemlessly as they did pre accident. It has been such a joy to be able to read effortlessly again even if it not back to pre accident entirely. My balance also improved along wiTh my sense of being, and the fog lifted comparatively speaking. Not having to concentrate so much certainly made a dent in fatigue levels also.

I accept that we are all individuals and have varying results but am keen to hear of other people's experiences for not all optometrists and ophthalmologists are on side with it.

I benefit from light therapy that I got from a neuro optometrist as well as a computer app called Iris, which reduces the flicker rate on computers as well as allows me to customize the screen color (a filter if you will). I cannot use computer monitors for longer than a few minutes without it unless I want to have nasty symptoms.

The brain-eye connection is interesting no doubt and something I intend to study.

My Mood: Behavioural Optometry


Are you using CRTs?

Flat screens do not flicker. The LED pixel remains charged until it is changed.

Fast motion can change frames at 60 hz or faster but the brain see that as motion, not flicker.

Older flat screens can have fluorescent back lights that flicker.

Iris is a blue light filter.
