We used it for my other child who had severe amblyopia/refractive errors, but Aaron's only vision issue is poor eye muscle control.  We're not really surprised by this new vision diagnosis, as it is a risk with hypotonia, just curious if anyone has feedback about how effective vision therapy is for this.  It's being incorporated into his OT program, which is also different from our other child, who had it done by a pediatric optometrist.

I don't have any feedback, but very curious to see how it works for him.  I have a friend who's son did vision therapy for something that might be similar to muscle control.  I know that he had good results with it.  Please keep us posted on it.

yes, with good result; we've corrected strabismus with occluding the "good" eye for periods of time during the day and with tracking excercises
