By relaxing the contracted focus-adjustment muscles around the eyeball, such as the ciliary and extraocular muscles, improvement of the pseudo-myopia is expected. This understanding has led to the accommodation training in which the visual target is given by stereoscopic video clips. In this study, we verify short-term effects of the apparatus on eyesight of visual inspection workers (22 females) suffering from eye fatigue and 12 middle-aged persons. In the Measurement 1, the workers were trained in 3 days. Moreover, the middle-aged were investigated on several trials of the eyesight recovering apparatus in the Measurement 2. As a result, the visual acuity was statistically improved by continuous accommodation training which will promote a ciliary muscle-stretching effect.
