Patients with having Visual Acuity (VA) or Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) of 6/6 often come with the complain of headache, eye ache/pain, blurred vision and other asthenopia related symptoms. These patients are often wrongly diagnosed and their binocular vision parameters remain unchecked. Binocular vision anomalies like convergence insufficiency/excess, accommodation insufficiency/excess, fusional vergence dysfunction and ocular motility related problems are the underlying causes for the symptoms related to asthenopia. Previously, orthoptic exercises like pen/pencil push-up exercises were the most common method to treat convergence insufficiency. But now with the home therapy remaining non-compliant to some patients and even failure of pen exercises, are well and successfully treated by vision therapy. After doing some Vision Therapy (VT) exercises (office and home) a patient can get relief from his/her asthenopia related problems and improved depth perception (stereopsis).
