SALT LAKE CITY - Aug. 6, 2008 - Following more than 20 years of scientific and clinical research, a revolutionary new program is now available to the general public: The Vision Improvement Program is a software-based method that can "train" a person to see better without surgery or reading glasses.
The Vision Improvement Program uses the novel NeuroVision Vision Correction technology to improve vision. The program has been clinically proven in the United States and abroad. NeuroVision's Vision Correction technology has received approval from the European Union CE Mark, as well as reputable eye care institutions in the United States and other countries, after extensively testing the program.
The Vision Improvement Program by NeuroVision has been written about by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, MedicalTribune News, the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, Primary Care Optometry News, Refractive EyeCare and a number of other trade, health care or eyecare publications.
"Our program does not require surgery or drugs, and its safety is assured," said Dr. Todd Kimball of the Sugar House Vision Clinic, a local Vision Restoration Program-certified doctor. "All you need to do is to perform a series of computerized visual tasks over approximately 20 program sessions."
Dr. Kimball said the 20 sessions train the visual cortex (the part of the brain responsible for vision) to "better process" vision. "The result is clearer, sharper vision," he said.
In most cases, Vision Improvement Program enrollees undergo successive 20-minute sessions, administered 2-3 times a week. During this time, a patient's visual acuity will be tested periodically to monitor progress. In clinical tests, the average improvement in a patient's eyes is 2-3 lines on a visual acuity chart. The average improvement in contrast sensitivity is more than 100 percent.
Prospective Vision Improvement Program patients can enroll on-line and www.improvemyvision.com, where they will receive instructions on how to install the program's software on their personal computer. Then, a patient will have a comprehensive eye exam by a Vision Improvement Program-certified doctor.
Once enrolled, a patient will be exposed to visual images displayed on the computer monitor during each treatment session. The patient interactively communicates with the computer using a mouse. During each session, data reflecting a patient's performance is recorded and automatically sent to the NeuroVision Web Server.
A Vision Improvement Program Personal Vision Specialist will guide and support the patient via e-main and phone along the training program sequence. Their progress is monitored both via the central database and during regular visits to a certified Vision Improvement Program doctor.
"Unlike expensive surgery, this program trains the brain to interpret what it is seeing more clearly," Dr. Kimball said. "It's that simple."
The Vision Improvement Program is backed by a 100 percent money-back guarantee. For more information on the Vision Restoration Program, visit www.improvemyvision.com or call 1-877-898-9933.
