Description

CONTEXT

Binocular motricity re-education consists in exercises by the way of devices such as prism rod, synoptophore…  These re-education techniques are limited. Indeed, they are subjective because they depend on the patient answers to the exercise and progresses performed by the patient are measurable through exchanges between the patient and the practitioner. Moreover these techniques are static and are enable to re-educate eye movement trajectories. As a result, orthoptic re-education results are random, depending on the orthoptist and the patient cooperation state.

The invention allows overcoming said drawbacks.

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION

The invention relates to a binocular motricity re-education device by sensorial stimulation of a patient.  The device allows binocular motricity re-education on horizontal and vertical axes and in depth. This device allows stimulating physiological synergy: binocular disparity, convergence and crystalline adaptation. Thus the device allows eyesight stimulation by combination of the whole physiologic resources The re-education carried out improves vision quality in three-dimensional space and the deployment of attention and cognitive abilities.

BENEFITS

– Objective assessment of the patient re-education progress.
– Cheap and easy to use re-education device.
– Device adapted to many different vision troubles.

INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS

The invention can be used in the field of orthoptic re-education and can be adapted to the following troubles: ocular motricity vergence deficit, dizziness, headache, squint, neuro-ophthalmological troubles, neurodegenerative diseases and aging, hyperactivity, dyslexia as well as post refractive surgery re-education and low vision re-education.
