Potential Transferable Skills from Eccentric Viewing Training


Fixation stability is frequently targeted and trained in visual rehabilitation practices to improve reading accuracy and speed. However, it has yet to be investigated in terms of improvements beyond reading. Previous researchers have shown that fixation stability is a visual parameter that can contribute towards the control of balance. Therefore, improved fixation as a consequence of eccentric-viewing training may provide additional benefits in improving balance. Here, researchers collaborate with low vision rehabilitation specialists to quantify fixation stability before and after an eccentric viewing training program, and determine if this can lead to increased use of visual information to improve both reading and balance.
