A visual enhancement training program utilizing the Eyespan was evaluated for its effect on peripheral directional localization and peripheral visual sensitivity abilities. These two abilities were evaluated on 48 subjects under identical conditions before and after a training program consisting of at least 16 training sessions. Twenty-four experimental subjects participated in the training sessions while the other 24 subjects served as a control group. The results were analyzed, and although the experimental group did show improvement on both peripheral directional localization and peripheral visual sensitivity, these improvements were not statistically significant.
