Tuebingen visual search / saccade training programme (VISIOcoach)
The University of Tuebingen Low Vision Clinic produces a saccadic training programme for patients with hemianopia, VISIOcoach. It encourages saccdes into the blind hemifield. It's based on this 2009 publication in the journal Neurology. It costs around 300 Euros + tax. The authors don't have any financial interest (which is reassuring).
