Biofeedback Training of Visual Acuity and Myopia: A Pilot Study
Biofeedback training of accommodation was performed with nine subjects using the Accommotrac Vision Trainer to attempt to improve visual acuity (VA) and reduce myopia. A single-subject research design was used. Improvements in VA were seen with some subjects, but it is not clear whether the improvements were due to the biofeedback training alone, or to a learning effect observed during repeated measurements of VA. There was no change in refractive error. Implications for future research are discussed.
