Background To evaluate the efficacy of transient vision restoration training (tVRT) with an augmented virtual reality platform in glaucoma patients. Design: A self-control, prospective study. Methods This study recruited subjects with glaucoma. All participants were treated with tVRT which based on an augmented virtual reality platform for 20 minutes. The intraocular pressure (IOP), the best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), global mean defect (MD) values, global indices mean sensitivity (MS)

However, the global MD significantly reduced, consistently the global MS changed better in the treated patients. Conclusions The glaucomatous optic neuropathy remains potentially neuroplasticity. And the training based on an augmented virtual reality platform may have a positive impact on vision restoration.
