Initial VT Evaluations
A typical eye examination evaluates visual acuity (20/20), the need for glasses, and eye health. While these are important aspects of vision, these tests will not detect many other types of visual disorders that affect reading, learning, sports, concentration, and everyday life.
Up to 75% of vision problems including most eye teaming (binocular vision), focusing (accommodation), tracking (oculomotor) and visual processing problems will be missed by a basic eye exam or screening.
A vision therapy evaluation gathers data about the visual, motory, sensory and behavior status of the patient. It is a much more extensive battery of tests than a routine eye exam.
Our comprehensive evaluation includes two in-office appointments and a consultation with the doctor.
Neuro-visual Examination with doctor (30 – 45 mins)
- Visual Acuity
- Oculomotor (ability to track a moving target)
- Vergence (ability to cross and relax you eyes)
- Binocularity (are the two eyes working together)
- Stereo (ability to see 3D)
- Accommodation (magnitude of focusing at near and distant)
- Pupillary reflexes
Visual Perceptual & Cognitive Evaluation (second appointment – 90-120 mins)
- Visual perceptual skills
- Reading level w/eye movement analysis
- Visual Motor Integration
- Visual Field
- Retained Primitive Reflexes
Consultation with doctor (third appointment 30-45 mins)
Once the second evaluation is complete, an evaluation report will be generated for you within 2-3 business days and uploaded into your patient portal. We will then call you to schedule the consultation.
