Custom Exercises

Custom exercises are a great way to add to your library of exercises, and personalize NVT for your clinic's approach to vision therapy.  Custom exercises can be text-only, or can also include embedded videos, and can be viewed by staff or assigned to patients just like any other exercise.

Custom exercises are only available to your clinic, and are not visible to any other clinics unless you choose to share them to NVT's Community Content.  

  1. From your clinic dashboard, select "EXERCISES", then the blue "ADD EXERCISE" button at the top right of your screen.
  2. Fill out the information on your exercise - the title, description, instructions, and a link to the video if desired. We allow Youtube, Vimeo, Google-Drive hosted videos in most formats.  See "Generating Video Links" below for instructions specific to your platform.
  3. Once created, your custom exercises will be visible and editable in the EXERCISES tab in your NVT dashboard. 

  1. To assign these exercises to clients, they can be selected from the "Video Exercises" dropdown in the "Assign Exercises" window:

Generating Video Links

We support videos hosted on YouTube, Vimeo, Google Drive, Dropbox, or any other service that provides raw url-access.


We recommend uploading videos to YouTube in Unlisted mode, which lets you embed your videos in NeuroVisual Trainer without the video be searchable on YouTube, or otherwise appearing on YouTube without the specific link. 

After your video has been uploaded to youtube, simply copy the share link and paste it into NeuroVisual Trainer.

The link can be found under the "SHARE" button on the video page.


To use Vimeo videos in NeuroVisual Trainer, simply copy the video URL either from the browser URL or the Share button.

Google Drive

We support videos hosted on Google Drive, but the file needs to be made accessible to anyone with a link.

  1. Login into your Google Drive
  2. Select the video that you want to use for your custom exercise.
  3. Right click on the document and select the "Get Link" option

4. Click "Restricted" to change the file permissions. Change the permissions to "Anyone with the link"

5. Click "Copy link" and use the link as your custom exercise video URL in NeuroVisual Trainer.

Raw URL / Website

We also support raw mp4 URLs from any website. Ask your web developer to upload and host your videos on your own website. Caveats:

  1. Videos must be in mp4 format
  2. The webserver must return a "Content-Type: video/mp4" header.  Most webservers will do this automatically.
  3. The webserver must NOT return a "Content-Disposition: attachment" header. Most webservers won't do this and will behave correctly.
