What is Convergence Insufficiency

Convergence insufficiency a common eye muscle problem. When reading or doing close work, a person’s eyes misaligned causing their vision to be blurry. This usually happens easily and automatically. A person with CI will have trouble moving their eyes inward to focus on nearby objects. It will require extra focus on their part to clearly see the object. This extra focus can cause headaches and eyestrain. CI can only be detected through an eye exam.

Treatment

Most eye care professionals treat CI using a home-based therapy called “pencil push-ups.” With his eyes, the child follows a small letter on a pencil as the pencil is moved to and from his face. The idea is to try and maintain focus as long as possible. Pencil push-ups are practiced for 15 minutes, five days per week.
