Binocular vision simplified tester (WOC)

WOC

This is a guide of WOC(D-5000). Please consult us if you are suffering from eye strain or school myopia.
Medical device approval number: 08B0573

What is WOC?

By looking at a beautiful landscape in the examiner for about 5 minutes, release the eye strain (fogging method). It is effective in reducing eye strain, preventing the progression of myopia in children, and maintaining a parallel gaze that has turned inward. WOC combines the lens exercise method and flashing pupil exercise to relieve tension in the eyes in a short period of time.

The optotype moves back and forth between +3.00D (fogging) and ±0.00D to -1.00D (adjustment resting position). This effect relieves tension in the ciliary body, which has become stiff due to constant tension caused by prolonged computer work, etc.

The light blinks according to the period of mydriasis and miosis of the pupil and can stimulate the ciliary body as well as the movement of the pupil. This stimulus enhances the fogging effect.

When looking at objects up close, the eye uses the ciliary body to expand the lens in the eye to bring them into focus, and this function is called adjustment. WOC relaxes the ciliary body, which has been strained by prolonged computer work, etc., and restores the focus that has shifted to the near side. The effects are immediately visible in the visual acuity, so we check the visual acuity before and after the treatment to confirm the effects. We have patients with pseudomyopia and eyestrain caused by prolonged computer work, as well as children who come to our clinic to prevent the progression of myopia. In addition, depending on the symptoms, eyes that have been tilted inward may be improved to a parallel position. If you are concerned about your symptoms or wish to have treatment with WOC, please consult our staff or doctor.
