Tuebingen visual search / saccade training programme (VISIOcoach)

The University of Tuebingen Low Vision Clinic produces a saccadic training programme for patients with hemianopia, VISIOcoach.  It encourages saccdes into the blind hemifield.  It's based on this 2009 publication in the journal Neurology.  It costs around 300 Euros + tax.  The authors don't have any financial interest (which is reassuring).
