Eccentric viewing training for age-related macular disease: Results of a randomised controlled trial

Ophthalmology Science has published an interesting article by Gary S. Rubin, Michael D. Crossland and Hannah MP. Dunbar among other authors. They conducted a randomised controlled trial of two types of eccentric viewing training.

In it, they conclude that Eccentric viewing training did not systematically improve task ability, reading performance or fixation stability in this study. Our results do not support the routine use of eccentric viewing training for people with progressing age-related macular disease, although this training may help people with end-stage disease. Rehabilitation of an inherently progressive condition is challenging.
