The aim of this study was to evaluate if reading performance could be improved by a period of compensatory vergence training in dyslexic children with otherwise normal binocular vision. The study included 13 children with dyslexia – mean age of 13.08 ±0.49 years at time of treatment. Twelve control dyslexics were also recruited with a mean age of 13.08 ±0.51 years. Over a five week period training was provided averaging 11.75 times ±2.53SD. The mean number of words read pre-treatment was 87.83 ±16.80 and after treatment was 95.58 ±18.08 which was significant, p=0.0066. The mean number of words read by control subjects at baseline was 85 ±19.68 and at the second visit, 89.37 ±19.71 which showed no significant difference. An increase in positive fusional reserves at near fixation was recorded for the treatment group. The authors conclude there is a beneficial improvement in reading ability following vergence training for dyslexics.
