Can You Train Your Brain So That You Can See Better?
A new scientific approach to training your brain so that you can see better has been developed by Revital Vision™.
What is Revital Vision?
Revital vision is a non-invasive, patient specific and perceptual learning system based on visual stimulation. It improves neuronal efficiency in the brain and improved contrast sensitivity by reducing the noise to signal ratio of brain activity in the occipital lobes of the brain (occipital lobes of the brain are where the vision centers are located).
The Revital vision program facilitates neural connections at the cortical level (cortex portion of the brain) using a computerized visual training regime using Gabor patches.
Contrast sensitivity is a higher level of vision testing compared to normal black letters on a white on a white background. Contrast sensitivity is testing the ability to see a grey line or image from another shade of grey. The difference in the amount of grey color from one line or image to the next is calculated and described as the level of contrast sensitivity. It can be measured with various methods.
Gabor patches have been shown to activate and match the shapes of the receptive fields in the cortex of the vision centers in the occipital lobes. Studies have shown that by using Gabor patches with lateral masking techniques improves contrast sensitivity at low levels of contrast.
Brain Plasticity or Neural Adaptation
Brain plasticity relates to the ability of the central nervous system to adapt to changed conditions such as after brain injuries or strokes and in acquiring new skills. These skills are achieved by changes in the brain cortex from repetitive actions. Contrast sensitivity is one of the most important factors in triggering activity in the visual cortex.
Revital Vision Training System
Performed at home on a computer
The program is done two to three times a week
Customized to your pace and visual abilities
Professionally monitored by your Revital Vision Specialist
Each of twenty sessions takes an average of twenty to thirty minutes
Brain plasticity and the ability to improve vision is continually being explored and tested. The Revital vision system is a new method that can help improve a person’s vision.
