Experimental: Oculo-Motor Exercises (OME)
10 repetitive four different oculomotor exercise protocols with eye stabilization were organized as home programs for 6 weeks, twice a day in the morning and evening each day of the week.
Behavioral: Oculo-Motor Exercises (OME)
Oculomotor Exercises (OME); The saccadic eye movement exercise included moving the eyes horizontally between two stationary targets while keeping the head still.
The smooth pursuit exercise included moving the target horizontally and tracking it with the eyes while keeping the head still.
The adaptation X1 exercise included moving the head horizontally while keeping the stationary target in focus.
The adaptation X2 exercise included moving the head and target in opposite directions horizontally while tracking the target with the eyes.
