EyeGym improves your concentration, attention to detail, comprehension and memory. It also improves your response times, coordination, peripheral and spatial awareness, and ultimately improves the speed at which you see, interpret, decide and act.

EyeGym is optimized for laptop, desktop and iPad. We do not recommend using this version of EyeGym on a mobile phone.
Which computer operating systems are supported?
One of the biggest factors that may affect your EyeGym performance is your browser, the program you use to access online content. Examples are Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari. Another factor is your operating system, which runs your computer and stores your files and programs, for example Windows 7.
Because computer technologies are constantly changing, we are not able to guarantee that EyeGym will function flawlessly on all systems. EyeGym is an advanced, data-driven system, therefore newer technologies tend to offer better experiences, so we try to stay up-to-date with the newest versions of browsers and operating systems. Older versions will eventually become unsupported.

How does the initial assessment work?
When you purchase certain programs, when you use them for the first time you will be prompted to do a series of drills which are set at a predetermined and average level.
These assessment drills will measure your level of EyeGym fitness and determine your aptitude in the various visual performance areas.
How do the levels in EyeGym work?
You will only progress to the next level once they have achieved the required pass percentage to do so.
To get to the next level you need to score appropriately in terms of your efficacy, speed, and EyeGym fitness.
This measurement is displayed at the completion of a specific level.
How does the ranking in EyeGym relate to performance?
Drill scores are updated in realtime as you train on the EyeGym.
Your ranking is calculated via aggregated scores, calculated in the following way. It is based on the same algorithm that is used to calculate ranking in EyeGym.
How can I improve my ranking?
By training in all the drills in your daily training session and improving your scores, particularly the scores of the drills you have completed.
