Reminds me of syntonic optometry. A lot of people practicing optometry that utilize syntonics have largely reversed neuro-psychiatric conditions in some people with the use of light, vision training, psycho-spiritual stimulation by impacting brain regions, etc.

 

Check out some of these resources:

Aaaaahhhh ... was waiting for someone to pickup on this.  Think he was talking about diagnosis more than treatment ... not sure

 

Anyone read about this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flicker_fusion_threshold  Something to think about by those affected by floursent lighting, especially older ballasts.

I've done this work with an Optometrist.  The colored light were helpful ... particularly with DR and hypersensitive peripheral vision.  It widend the area of focal visual processing which was surprizing - thought these areas were strickly static, not dynamic.

 

I strongly recommend visual therapy and training.  Anyone near Albany should try this guy http://www.optometrists.org/fox/

Jacob Liberman has a book on light and vision training, too. There are downloads for it online. His research on light, eyes, and the brain led him to look into meditation and neurofeedback and he has become rather spiritual, so there is a lot of talk of spirituality in his book, but it has sound information. He also recommends a product in his book that is affordable and can be hooked up to your PC (I believe) that trains vision, particularly the skill of vision, not only visual acuity.

 

Z-health has a vision training product, too, that is grounded in research. Same with the Feldenkrais method if I'm correct. Anyhow, what I've learned from z-health is that many visual or vestibular problems are BOTH visual AND vestibular problems - so you'll get optimal results if you train vision+the vestibular apparatus at the same time. 

 

It's perfectly fine to train your vision and vestibular apparatus at home, and I've begun doing so, but I'm not sure this should be highly recommended without prior research and guidance by a clinician, especially in someone with severe neurological/psychiatric issues. Many times different brain regions "wake up" and can cause temporarily negative reactions - even from simple eye movements. I've experienced this myself, and have often seen it discussed in interactive metronome and z-health groups.
