Vision Restoration Therapy (VRT) – Research Articles
VRT is supported by 15 years of research with clinical studies published in more than 20 leading journals, of which some of the key findings can be summarized as:
- Approximately 70% of patients experience positive outcome reflected by an increase in their visual field and studies have indicated an average increase of 4.9 degrees (Mueller I, et al., 2007; Romano JG, et al., 2008).
- Elapsed time since injury does not seem to impact VRT therapies success. Therefore, a large historical backlog of patients can potentially be treated (Romano JG, et al., 2008).
- Improvements are permanent and do not appear to be age or gender dependent.
The average approximate five degree improvement in central vision from VRT can make a significant difference in patients’ daily lives ((Gall C, et al,. 2008) and patients experienced a functional improvement such as improvements in their vision that impact their ability to read, walk, watch TV, and socialize comfortably.
