Abstract

Millions of Americans suffer from low vision, which inhibits their abilities to complete everyday activities. In vision therapy, patients complete exercises to improve vision-cognition skills. Patient progress in the clinic must be supplemented by at-home vision exercises, but compliance with conventional assigned homework is low because the exercises are not engaging and do not allow the therapist to track patient progress. In response to this problem, we developed the fun and interactive mobile application ION, which engages patients in vision exercises and provides therapists with progress reports of patient performance. Testing on ION showed that it is easy to use by people of all ages; furthermore, users find that ION exercises are more fun than traditional at-home vision exercises.
