What VT activities can be performed with your charts?

We have many activities and resources available. These resources are available to download as activity suggestions for our alphanumeric/shape/BDPQ and arrow charts. We also have a VT training suggestion video for our Flipped E chart, which is available for anyone interested in our practice.

Do I have to use red/clear or red/green glass with your products?

Using red/clear or red/green glasses depends on our vision therapy products. For instance, our vision charts work as standard Hart charts, so they can be used without any of these glasses. Stereoscope cards, like Eccentric Circles, also do not require red/green glasses and can be used outside a stereoscope as free space fusion cards. On the other hand, the Stereo Stories Book and Stereo Photos need the red/green glasses to appreciate the 3D float.

For further details about this topic, watch our VT training suggestion videos regarding the Stereo Story Book and Stereoscope Cards.

How can I introduce lenses and/or prisms with your charts or Stereo Stories book?

Check out our iheartvt.org course, The Tools of VT: Filters, Lenses, and Prisms, for details about this topic. During this lesson, we discussed many ways of using red/clear and red/green filters combined with accommodative and prism flippers.


Why should I combine lenses or prisms with anti-suppression or stereo-vision products?

Vision therapy aims to help patients gain automaticity with their visual skills. When lenses are introduced, accommodative demand is altered and put under stress. Similarly, the prisms’ (BO and BI) vergence demand is also altered and adds stress. Our binocular stimulus products are a huge advantage for patients as they receive feedback about their binocularity. This feedback helps them maintain proper binocularity while responding to accommodative and vergence demands created with lenses and prisms.

I am new to the field of vision therapy. What do you suggest helps to learn more about VT?

Consider obtaining a copy of The Vision Therapist’s Toolkit. We wrote this guide in a conversational style to make the information accessible to people who may not have any optical or vision background. This book covers the basic concepts of vision therapy, introduces many staple procedures, and discusses ways of modifying its challenges.

Our COVT specialist, Tom Headline, has had the pleasure of teaching several courses for the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD), including:

Another beneficial resource is COVD online study groups. If you are a member of this college, join these groups to learn more about VT-related topics and develop new skills.

Is The Vision Therapist's Toolkit only for Vision Therapists?

The Vision Therapist's Toolkit is helpful for anyone. Many primary-care optometrists have found our book useful, especially when adding vision therapy products to their clinics. Also, developmental optometrists and FCOVD candidates have found our guide helpful in their preparation.

Do you teach about VT?

Yes, we are passionate about teaching anyone about vision therapy. Over the years, we have had the opportunity to meet optometrists and VTs from around the world, which has enriched our experience in the field.
