Colorful Lights

Syntonic Phototherapy

Syntonic phototherapy, the practice of using certain wavelengths (colors) of light to balance the brain and body, has been around since before the ancient Greeks.

The doctors at Arizona Vision Therapy Center are trained and experienced in harnessing these wavelengths to provide the best possible success rates in their treatment protocols. 


A typical syntonics treatment consists of discussing the needs of their patients.  Some examples that the syntonics can help include problems with reading endurance, concentrating, relaxing, motivation, eye strain and fatigue, and sleeping more soundly.

Once the goals are found, the doctor reviews the functional color field to show the patient where the vision, brain and body are stressed.  The doctor then measures 5-10 visual skills to determine the best possible wavelengths for that patient at that visit. 

The patient takes the wavelengths home in the form of goggles or light kits and performs the home support activities for 10-20 minutes per day for about 20 days.  The patient then returns to clinic to measure the next wavelengths. 

These treatments are often done to boost the effects of our other programs and to help the patients learn how to control their brain to lessen the effects of fight-or-flight.

Functional Color Fields

These fields show an abundant amount of information.  For instance, certain colors in this test signify different functions:

  1. Black on white (or white on black) signifies how well someone can attend to high contrast visual targets like words on a page signs while driving

  2. Green signifies the toxic load in the brain and body or acute infections and how they are stressing the person’s vision and ability to handle life

  3. Red signifies the amount of inflammation or chronic health problems and how they are blocking resilience

  4. Blue signifies vitality and vascular health and how much the person has in energy reserves to handle daily stressors

The other tests use the visual pathways to determine which areas of the brain need support.  Each brain area responds to different wavelengths better than others so the doctor knows which to choose for the best effect.
