Gamified Exercises for Reading Fluency, Athletic Aim, & Visual Processing Disorders

There’s no need to be diagnosed with a visual processing disorder to benefit from The Crystal Key!

Eyes In Sync was founded in 2015 by 3 moms: a neuroscientist, an optometrist, and an education specialist. Understanding the high rate of undiagnosed vision disorders and their negative impact on a student’s self-confidence, academic success, and athletic performance, we joined together to develop a meaningful solution. Our mission is to provide gamified visual skills training and exercises that are fun, engaging, affordable, and accessible.


Our VR games combine current research and cutting-edge technology to optimize academic and athletic performance. Benefit from increased reading speed, attention, and fluency, to improved athletic performance. Our patent-pending technology was funded by the National Science Foundation. All you need to play are Meta Quest VR goggles.

Our games don’t diagnose vision disorders or replace the need for regular eye exams. Students love to play our games and parents, educators, and coaches love the results!
