In thepast, convergence insufficiency may have been overlooked because it is notincluded in pediatricians' tests and school screenings. It is possible to pass a20/20 (Snellen chart) test and still have convergence insufficiency. Diagnosiscan be made by an optometrist after measuring convergence with somesimple tests. Professional treatment consisting of office-based eye exercisesand at-home techniques for reinforcement is effective.Convergence insufficiency generally cannot be improved with eye glassesor surgery.
