    Does anyone have an opinion about the efficacy of active vision
    therapy in conjuction with patching and lense correction in a case of
    amblyopia resulting from a large refractive difference in a 5 3/4 year
    old? My son, whom I have written to this group about not long ago, is
    +4.5/+7.5 with best corrected acuity of 20/40 and 20/100 respectively.
    His current regime is 6 hours of patching daily with full Rx glasses
    (which he has accepted without any troubles whatsover!). I found a
    paper online that refers to improvement in binocularity when patching
    and correction are supplemented by vision therapy. Does anyone have
    experience with this therapy or could you describe it to me, it's
    benefits and limitations? Should I investigate this for my son
    (Brandon)?

    Thanks,
    Jeff
