Convergence Insufficiency | Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania, Reading PA

Convergence Insufficiency

Convergence insufficiency (CI) is a common eye muscle coordination problem. When reading or doing close work, a person’s eyes must turn in (converge) for the words to be clear and single. In CI, the eyes do not turn in easily and, as a result, extra convergence effort must be used to force the eyes to turn in. This additional effort can cause a number of symptoms such as eyestrain, headaches, blurred vision and double vision. The Pediatric Eye Center offers specialized treatment both in the office and on the home computer for convergence insufficiency.
