    The Practical Vision Therapy program has been developed to meet the needs of Optometrists and Therapists as they look to diversify and meet the needs of more patients by providing gold-standard office-based vision therapy. The Fast Track program for Optometrists delivers relevant theory, provides an understanding of the development of vision problems, addresses programming options for management along with structuring for success in a primary care practice.

    effects o spatial processing, accommodation, vergence and the visual
    11-12.30pm Visual Dysfunctions/Refractive Conditions
    1.Understand the use of lenses in optometric practice: Compensatory,
    Therapeutic, Training
    2.Understand prisms and their use in optometric practice:
    Compensatory, Therapeutic & Yoke, Disruptive, Training
    3.Experience and understand the relevance of SILO optical propertie
    1.30–3pm Accommodation & Convergence
    1.Understand accommodation control in terms of accuracy, stamina &
    2.Understand binocularity or vergence ability in terms of accuracy,
    stamina and flexibility
    3.Identify & understand the salient features of a vision examination
    which are relevant in the therapy room including: Tropia versus phoria,
    Accommodation measurements
    3.30–5pm Models for Understanding Visual Dysfunction
    1.Understand the role of stress on visual function & schema breakdown
    2.Identify aspects of visual function which change as a result of stress or
    excessive demand
    3.Understand factors that determine efficient visual function
    4.Review examination data for results which are not expected
    5.Understand the role of vision therapy in treating visual dysfunction
    DAY 2

    Stress, Schema, Embeddedness / Impact and Incidence
    1.Understand the importance of diagnosing & treating functional vision
    problems based on their incidence and impact
    2.Identify symptoms & signs that may be related to functional vision
    3.Broadly define dyslexia and understand how vision therapy may be
    able to assist a patient with dyslexia 

    4.Understand the relevance of attention, fixation & visualisation vision
    therapy when treating disorders of accommodation and convergence.
    5. Acknowledge the significant supporting evidence for the use of office
    based vision therapy when treating disorders of accommodation and

    11-12.30pm Stress, Schema, Embeddedness / Impact and Incidence
    1.Understand the importance of including spatial awareness and
    proximal localisation during vision therapy for accommodation and
    vergence disorders.
    2. Understand the role of the autonomic nervous system in
    accommodation and vergence dysfunction, and the associated role of
    stress and sympathetic nervous system arousal.
    3.Identify how to appropriately load or alter each activity appropriate to
    the patient’s needs and goals/outcomes
    4. Acknowledge the supporting evidence for the myopia epidemic.
    Discuss the role of accommodation and vergence dysfunction and the role of the hyperopic buffer.
    1.30–3pm Management Considerations
    1.Demonstrate vision therapy procedural and tool knowledge including
    techniques using: Tranaglyphs, Disruptive (disassociated) prisms, SILO
    2.Understand the relevance of vision therapy activities used to treat
    visual dysfunction including: Vertical Alignment, Eccentric circles,
    3.Overlapping Pictures, Red/Green Circles , Bug on a String
    4.Identify how to appropriately load or alter each activity appropriate to
    the patient’s needs and goals/outcomes
    3.30–5pm VT for Visual Dysfunction
    1.Manage a patient in vision therapy by considering required outcomes
    based on clinical findings and prognosis, whilst also considering the age, development or special requirements of the patient
    2.Manipulate the levels of demand of various activities by increasing or
    decreasing the load
    3.Understand factors influencing the hierarchy of the design and
    implementation of Vision training program
    4.Review relevant cases and identify clinical findings and suggest
    relevant vision therapy activities
