The National Eye Institute CITT study helped “validate” vision therapy among the MD community despite of its flaws. Completed in 2008 with the implication that a more effective method was just found to alleviate symptoms of convergence insufficiency, developmental optometrists had known about the efficacy of in-office vision therapy for decades. Another drawback of this study is its length. Since 12 weeks was the magic number found to have positive results, many insurance companies adopted this mode of thinking as well, ignoring the many other variables involved that may influence the potential course of vision therapy.
The American Optometric Association has fact sheets and a policy statement on vision therapy.
