Clinical application of prismatic lenses in the rehabilitation of neglect patients. A randomized controlled trial
European Journal of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, 06/12/2012
Mancuso M et al. – The results showed that the prismatic lenses of only five degrees, used for the study, did not contribute to the variation in performance. Thus, this deviation of the fixation point of the visual field to the right is not sufficient to create a therapeutic effect. The improvement observed within the two groups, seems likely to be correlated with the pointing exercises, which force the subject to perform a visuomotor task with the healthy arm also in the neglected side.
