Its called NeuroVision. It is a new computer software to train the patient's vision. It is extremely new, and should be called Vision Training / Treatment.

It is said that by sitting 5 feet away from the monitor, and interacting with the computer by looking at the monitor, you'll be improving your vision slowly.

By looking at the computer, you are to choose between 2 displays (one is displayed after another) and you have to choose which one contains the image (only one display contains it). This task keeps repeating till it gets pretty difficult to distinguish. Its a force choice technique, and the image can be very small, near the threshold of your vision.

Through a research conducted by Israel, this technology has been proven to cure Amblyopia (Lazy eye). Adult lazy eye has been said to be incurable, and poor vision can no longer improve.

The technology has been brought into Singapore, and is trying to improve the vision of people who has low myopia. The process is not instantaneous, and may not guarantee results.

Neurovision may only be suitable for low amounts of myopia (-1.50 and below) to improve vision, and hopefully get clearer vision and rid spectacles.

For moderate amounts of myopia (-3.00 and below), it can hopefully reduce your reliance on spectacles / contact lenses.

It is highly recommended for Amblyopic (Lazy eye) adults, as this is their only hope for clear vision. But it can be a very delicate balance between clearer vision, and other related vision dysfuntion, which i will not go into.

Hope the above is useful. :)

Sorry for the late reply. But seems you've got it all figured out. The 1000 bucks, is paying for the treatment, the technology, and also the eye checks (i presume).

But its no 100%. You may go through all the 30 sessions in a couple of month, and realise you do not have improvement at all. BUt of course, there are successful cases. Its all about expectations.

Be sure to ask the Optometrist / Provider about what happens if your vision does not improve. I've heard there are refunds if there's no improvement. Though i'm not sure how much % refund and which outlet offers it.

Good Luck!
