Effect of visual restitution training on absolute homonymous scotomas.

Author information

University Eye Hospital, Department of Pathophysiology of Vision and Neuro-Ophthalmology, Tuebingen, Germany.


The authors examined 16 patients with stable homonymous visual field defects (HVFDs) with static automated perimetry (SAP). Training effect E was defined as difference of the proportions of absolutely defective locations in all test locations, before and after visual restitution training (VRT). E was 0.05 +/- 0.05 (mean +/- SD). The authors observed a relevant training effect (E >or= 0.12) in two subjects, but only monocularly. VRT has little effect on absolute HVFDs in SAP.
