1. A computerized operator-controlled optical system for tracking eye exercises of a patient, the system comprising:
a) an optical tracking device adapted to allow an operator to track eye exercises of a patient;
b) a patient-activated apparatus for performing eye exercises of both eyes together, the patient activated apparatus comprising:
i. a near frame;
ii. a far frame;
iii. a rail upon which said near frame and said far frame are vertically disposed; and
iv. patient activated controller buttons for moving at least one of said near frame and said far frame along said rail and
c) a processor adapted to receive data from said optical tracking device and from said patient-activated apparatus thereby providing said operator with at least one indication of said eye exercises of said patient over time,
wherein said patient a patient-activated apparatus further comprises:
a. an ocular apparatus disposed at a front end of said patient-activated apparatus, said ocular apparatus comprising:
i. two viewing apertures, each disposed to be located in front of one of said patient's eye;
ii. each of said viewing apertures adapted to receive at least one of:
a. an optical lens;
b. an optical filter; and
c. a prismatic lens,
wherein said first and said second picture are test images selected from at least one of a picture, a photo, an alphanumeric symbol and at least one colored shape, and
wherein said patient-activated apparatus further comprises an audio feedback element for generating, during said eye exercises, an audio signal whose characteristics are indicative of a distance of one of said test images from said viewing apertures.
