Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9824394A2] A device for the optical correction and exercise of vision comprises a frame (1) securely fastened with respect to the human eyes, and optical elements (2 and 3). Said optical elements have transparent zones with different optical characteristics which are interconnected by transition lines and mounted to ensure transition of the visual axis of a corresponding eye at any level from one zone to another on the horizontal. The difference in values of corresponding optical characteristics of the zones lies within the limits between objective sensitivity of the eye and the human's subjective sensitivity to the change in a given optical characteristic. A number of embodiments of the device is proposed in accordance with the invention. A preferred embodiment of the device provides its accomplishment in the form of spectacles. In all cases, image sharpness and fusion are achieved at the expense of a "trimming" of the eye muscles, which in a multiple repetition has an exercising effect on ocular muscles and the eyes as a whole. As a result of using this device with optical elements of a proposed structure, a continuous process of exercising the accommodation-convergent apparatus is carried out, which favors an efficient prophylaxis and treatment of functional visual disorders and makes it possible to use the proposed device as a highly effective means in everyday life of humans having both disturbed and normal vision, irrespective of the type of their activities.
