Research on Vision Therapy

Research on Vision Therapy
I am tired of various patients, MDs and others telling me their is no research supporting vision therapy. COVD has published this on their website. You can also go to PubMed and Google Scholar to find more research on the topic. Most are just to lazy too look, too lazy to read and too lazy to understand. Their biases get in the way of the research. This is sad. 

I figure if this is available here AND on the CO'VD website perhaps even the laziest of of folks can find this information. DM

COVD has compiled summaries of research and clinical studies on optometric vision therapy.  These summaries provide an overview of the literature on the use of vision therapy for several visual conditions.

Summary 1
Completed in July, 2009, this paper presents over 350 abstracts from 77 journals.

Summary 2
Completed in October, 2010, this paper presents 35 additional abstracts.

Summary 3
Completed in October, 2011, this paper presents 65 additional abstracts.
