Does Your Child Struggle With Reading?
Does your child have Convergence Insufficiency?
To read efficiently you need to focus (converge) both eyes on the same word, and then move your eyes smoothly across the page.
A standard eye test does not test for Convergence Insufficiency, yet it is a common problem that affects many children with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and other reading difficulties.
Playing Engaging Eyes may help if your child has one or more of the following symptoms:
- ✔ Words appear to move, or are blurry, or are double
- ✔ Gets eyestrain or headaches when reading
- ✔ Reads slowly
- ✔ Can only read for short periods
- ✔ Coloured overlays help
- ✔ Has difficulty learning to read
- Eye Tracking

How to Help Convergence - Play Engaging Eyes
Playing Engaging Eyes improves convergence, by getting you to shoot targets which appear to be in 3D when you converge your eyes.
Improved convergence will improve reading fluency and reduce other symptoms of Visual Stress - like difficulties reading black print on white paper.
It may also improve attention, as your child will be able to better focus on close work.
Look at this image when wearing 3D games and the targets will appear to be at different depths.
You will need to wear Red and Cyan 3D glasses which can be bought from Amazon and other places.
Tracking Left to Right
Once both eyes can focus on the same letter, you then need to be able to track smoothly left to right.
