These far-near focus charts are for the development of greater accommodative facility and to train sequential memory, visualization and fixations.
Two eyes...four controls...one brain. Vision is a two-way street for recording in the brain the ingredients of knowledge and intelligence - and back again as the control by the brain to make seeing possible. This fanciful drawing of a “cross-section” of the head illustrates these two processes. One the reverse is the “Story of Vision” This classic illustration artwork was done by artists from the Disney Studio. 8 1/2” x 11”. Pad of 50.
These winter-themed, whimsical images are a fun alternative to the standard convergence chart, and the full color images. The chart has the following suppression checks and 3D elements incorporated into the graphics: Reindeer...Suppression checks - Left ear and tail...3D effects - Nose and the bells on collar should pop out, the legs on the reindeer’s right side should drop back. Snowman...Suppression checks - Left hand holding the top hat and right hand holding the broom...3D effects - Carrot nose, scarf hanging down, and buttons on the snowman’s body should pop out. Penguin...Suppression checks - Left scarf, right wing/flipper and left foot...3D effects - Pom pom on hat should drop back, beak and cheeks on the penguin’s face and the scarf hanging in front of his body should pop out. Gift...Suppression checks - Left bow loop and ribbon on left and right sides of the box...3D effects - The corner of the box (in the center) should appear closer, the bow should be 3 dimensional with the left end of the bow’s ribbon appearing to come towards you. Pad of 50 charts in full color.

Math - Double sided distance chart of numbers and letters with two corresponding nearpoint cards for far-near-far and scanning therapy procedures. Several procedures and combinations of procedures are possible, allowing the patient to perform tasks incorporating visual scanning and mathematical sequencing and problem-solving.

These far-near focus charts were designed with the reading-disabled therapy patient in mind. When an initial letter group from the near chart is read with an accompanying letter group from the distance chart, a word is formed. Multiple word combinations are possible. The charts aid in the treatment of accommodation, convergence and suppression. Set includes 1 laminated distance chart and 2 laminated near charts with instructions.
