Bristol Eye Gym is the brain child of our Senior Optometrist Peter Turner. He found that he was needing to be ever more creative in his vision training methods to ensure that his patients remained engaged and committed to their vision therapy plan (behavioural optometry).
When describing the vision training process to a patient as physiotherapy for your eyes & vision, the idea Eye Gym was formed.
Eye Gym describes the process of vision training that helps patients learn to overcome their visual difficulties, ensuring that we help each of them achieve their individual target, including clear comfortable and sustainable vision - for life.
Eye Gym assessment & training process:
1. A full vision assessment with our Senior Vision Coach, Peter. This is a component by component assessment of the patient’s visual system - which includes computerised assessment of eye movements, eye tracking and eye co-ordination. 2. A written report is produced by Peter, which includes information explaining the why of the patient’s difficulties. 3. A personalised training plan is designed for each patient based on the findings of their vision assessment. 4. Vision training sessions are started with our Vision Coach 5. Interim reviews occur regularly with our Senior Coach, Peter. 6. Aim to achieve the target of clear, comfortable, and sustainable vision for life.
When you begin your first training session with your Vision Coach, we will set your achievable goals and targets and a plan on how to get you there. You will be shown how to do each of the vision training exercises with an explanation of what this will help you achieve. Each exercise has been specially designed by Peter to efficiently get you to your target. We follow a HIT process to ensure that you can achieve your goal without being overburdened with complexities you don't need.
If you've got a few minutes, six days a week, and would like improved vision then Eye Gym is the Vision Training for you!
