The role of Vision Therapy in Symptomatic ADHD children.
Based on our results, binocular dysfunction should always be considered in conjunction with the questionnaire survey for diagnosis of ADHD symptoms, especially, insufficient convergence, because several questions in the survey of ADHD symptoms could also be used in the diagnosis of symptomatic CI. Though a VT program for successful improvement of CI, including both long-term and maintenance therapy is needed24), improvements in NPC, PFV, and horizontal phoria were coincident with improvements in symptomatic ADHD of children. Consequently, the results of this study demonstrate the beneficial impact of treating children with CI on symptomatic ADHD based on parental report.

Binocular Vision Pandemic
In 2010 there will be up to 9.3 million amblyopes and 18 million individuals with strabismus. For children under 18 years of age that means there will be more than 2 million amblyopes and millions of children with strabismus. A clinical trial to determine the prevalence of binocular vision dysfunction within the general population suggested the possibility of up to 56% or 60 million men, women and young adults with symptoms associated with a binocular vision (BV) dysfunction, 45 million (61%) with accommodative problems and 28 million (38%) demonstrating various vergence anomalies.1
