Eye Movement Training

Brain Region and Function-Specific Exercises

The eyes are an extension of the brain stem and are directly correlated with brain health. Correcting aberrant eye movements is vital to producing a more complete integration within the brain. Eye movements are controlled by three different cranial nerves, which control six muscles responsible for all of the movements of each eye. These muscles make an orchestra, and in order for the music to be beautiful, all of the musicians have to be getting the same information from the composer, which in this case is the respective brain regions.

Something important to note is that individuals don't often feel anything wrong with their eye movements until they are shown. This is due to the brain's ability to compensate and make the changes irrelevant, but after enough time or diagnostic visualization of the problem the individual will become perceptive of the poor function. This isn't to say that the compensation is all bad because at the moment it is the right move for survival, it's just a bad long-term strategy because it is an extra metabolic demand to continually fill in the visual gaps. 

After examination with the RightEye, exercises to correct any abnormal findings will be prescribed. In addition, these exercises will be coupled with other modalities such as balance training, vibration, laser, and so on in order to maximally recruit implicated brain areas with the goal of getting the maximum consequence of training.
