Convergence insufficiency is an inability or decreased ability to converge the eyes when focusing on a near object. Individuals with convergence insufficiency have problems maintaining binocular vision when looking at near objects, which affects their everyday activities, such as writing and reading. While the number of people with convergence problems is far from low (up to 15 %!), we still don’t completely understand why convergence insufficiency ensues. Luckily, convergence insufficiency can be treated even later in life, and adults who perform eye exercises are able to achieve very high levels of improvements.
The history of convergence insufficiency treatment is more than 150 years old, but nowadays the most prevalent and important treatment option is orthoptic exercises. These exercises, such as pencil push-up, can all be performed at home, yet they might not engage the patient enough. For this reason, several computer or tablet-based software therapy solutions have been developed, through which a person can conduct vision therapy in a guided virtual environment.
