How it Works

eyeQ™ exercises the brain, which improves mental processing much like physical exercise helps athletes improve their performance on the court or field. With consistent exercise and weight lifting, an athlete becomes physically stronger. Similarly, eyeQ™ helps people exercise their brain, enhancing all mental activities. As with an athlete, these skills diminish without practice, but never totally go away. Periodically doing a simple eyeQ™ session will keep you mentally fit and help you retain your enhanced processing skills.

The seven-minute imaging exercises in the eyeQ™ program strengthen the eyes and increase peripheral vision, allowing us to take in more material at once. The imaging training engages more of the right side of the brain, which is the side associated with creativity. The high-speed imaging stimulates the neural pathways, strengthening the eye-brain connection and improving our thinking and reaction time.

Scientifically Proven Results

According to functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) tests conducted at the University of Utah and Cal-Tech at Pasadena, eyeQ™ increases brain activity while users read by as much as 1500%. In short, this means that the program retrains your brain and allows it to utilize multiple areas for common, everyday tasks. Whereas the brain typically utilizes only one small section known as Broca’s Area for processing language and auditory stimuli, the FMRI tests found that language and auditory activity spread through all areas of the brain, including areas responsible for reason, conceptual learning, memory, vision, and more.

What This Means for You

Right now as you read this paragraph, your eyes and your brain must work as a team to help you understand and retain the information on the page. Normally this happens in the Broca’s area, also known as the language center of the brain. In the images below, you’ll notice that the “normal brain scan” image shows activity in one centralized location. This is Broca’s area. Reading this way limits the amount of information you can absorb at one time. When you can learn how to utilize more of your brain for the simple task of reading, you can read faster and retain more of what you read for long periods. It is possible to retrain your brain completely in just seven minutes a day.

Millions of people around the world, including school-aged children, CEOs, and even entire families use the eyeQ program to boost their mental capacity and acuity. Whether you want to score better on tests, boost productivity in the workplace, or simply improve your ability to learn, eyeQ is a simple, quick, and effective solution.

The Benefits of the eyeQ™ Reading Therapy Program Are Clear

Individuals who take a mere seven minutes out of their day to participate in the quick, interesting, and effective exercises can boost their overall mental capacity. Read faster. Live better. Experience the proven methodology that is eyeQ reading therapy software. The below section explains all the areas of our focus.

eyeQ’s reading therapy techniques focus on several different issues that inhibit reading skills. When you can overcome these issues, you can also overcome many other problems you might face. With regular training, you can improve your decision-making skills, your ability to recall information, and even certain visual conditions like dyslexia. Some of the areas of focus include:

  • Paced Reading
    This conditions your eyes and your brain to work together to read at a rapid pace. When you participate in paced reading exercises with high, varying speeds, your brain realizes that it needs to read and process information more quickly.
  • Comprehension
    By focusing on comprehension in your therapy, you will better understand what you read. The eyeQ software requires you to display a minimum level of comprehension in order to move forward. Comprehension is also a key factor in measuring your overall progress.
  • Subvocalization
    This is the process of mentally sounding out words in your head as you read. Although this is an effective tool for children who are learning to read, as we become older, it actually slows down our reading and takes away from our ability to comprehend what we read.
  • Fixation Span
    This refers to the small, incremental jumps your eyes make as they read the words on a page or screen. During these small jumps, known as saccades, your brain essentially photographs the words you see. Your fixation span is the number of words you take in during a single saccade.
  • Fixation Time
    This is the opposite of your fixation span, and it describes the amount of time your eyes pause as they move along a line of text. The lower your fixation time, the faster you can read.
  • Regression
    Finally, regression is the act of going back to reread information. Some people need to reread between 50% and 60% of everything they take in for proper comprehension. eyeQ helps your brain and your reading speed work together, reducing the need to regress.
Over the last several decades, scientists and researchers have discovered that your brain is like a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger it becomes. They refer to this phenomenon as “neuroplasticity,” which is the brain’s ability to improve continually without limit. Several eyeQ™ techniques focus on brain strengthening, including:

  • Alternating Speeds
    eyeQ™  alternates reading speeds in an effort to teach your brain how to process information more quickly. These alternating speeds help remove subvocalization and essentially retrain your brain.
  • Mental Processing
    With daily doses of activities, eyeQ™ gives your brain a quick but powerful workout to help improve your mental capacity day after day, year after year.
  • Problem Solving
    Clinical studies performed on students of all ages proved a massive increase in frontal lobe activity; this is the area of the brain responsible for problem-solving skills. These students performed better on tests because they could better utilize and process the information filed away in their brains.
  • Memory
    The frontal lobe is also responsible for creating and storing memories, so with increased activity in this area, you can remember more details.
  • Decision Making
    With a stronger memory and increased problem-solving abilities, you will demonstrate improved decision-making skills when you participate in the eyeQ™ reading therapy program.
  • Recall
    eyeQ™ participants can recall memories and information that is already stored in their brains more quickly and accurately over time.
eyeQ™ also incorporates vision therapy into its exercises, and these teach your eyes how to move as you read. With continued therapy, your eyes will adapt to the needs of your brain, allowing you to read faster and comprehend more. Some of the exercises include:

  • Left Right Movement
    Some of the eyeQ™ exercises focus on moving your eyes from left to right as well as from right to left. These help your brain and eyes learn to work together for improved reading speed.
  • Eye Strengthening
    Eye strengthening techniques help you learn how to use your peripheral vision when reading. These exercises also teach you how to move your eyes more quickly with less eyestrain.
  • Eye Teaming
    Eye teaming refers to your eyes’ ability to work together as a team. When your eyes work together more efficiently, this improves not only reading skills, but also vision as a whole.
  • Tracking
    Tracking refers to your ability to move his or her eyes along a string of words. When you learn how to track your eyes together, you can enjoy reading and visual acuity.
Multi-area engagement refers to your brain’s ability to utilize several areas at once when you perform everyday tasks. For instance, a specific region of the brain known as Broca’s Area typically provides the power for activities such as reading, speaking, and listening. FMRI studies at the University of Utah and Cal-Tech Pasadena show that eyeQ increases right-side brain activity by as much as 1500%, expanding well beyond Broca’s Area and giving users more mental capacity for their everyday tasks.
