Treatment

Convergence insufficiency may be treated with convergence exercises prescribed by an eyecare specialist trained in vision therapy, orthoptics, and binocular vision anomalies. Some cases of convergence insufficiency are successfully managed by prescription of eyeglasses with therapeutic Prism (optics) and/or lenses in addition to the therapy regime.
In 2005, the Convergence Insufficiency Treatment Trial (CITT) published two randomized clinical studies. The first, published in Archives of Ophthalmology demonstrated that in-office based vision therapy was more effective than home based treatment for convergency insufficiency in 9 to 18 year old children. The second found similar results for adults 19 to 30 years of age.
