Therapy after hemianopsiaA scientifically studied and successful method of therapy is the exploratory saccadic training, in which the patient trains his eyes in the direction of the blind side and thus uses his dormant eye muscle potential. How often do you move your eyes in your everyday life? Mostly the head takes care of things that are not directly in the field of view and turns. The eyes are rarely moved to the extreme.
«Significant behavioral improvements»[...] we would like to argue that compensatory approaches have come further towards the aim of establishing their clinical efficacy than either the VRT approaches or the use of optical aids. In the case of compensatory approaches several studies found significant behavioral improvements following the training.
