WHAT WE TEST - VISION & INPP
The visual evaluation at Orthovision consists of the Developmental Visual Cognitive Assessment that includes static and dynamic elements of functional vision. The assessment often goes beyond visual functions into the field of visual perceptual skills and its relationship to the entire sensory system.
In addition to the visual testes children would have INPP screening for Neuro-Motor immaturity. This is very important component of the assessment as it helps us to have an insights into state of child's Neuro-Motor development and the relationship to development of the visual and over all sensory system.
The results of all these individual tests are then looked at in its entirety and in relationship to the lifestyle and visual habits of the client.
Any therapy can only be advised after the Developmental Visual Cognitive Assessment.
Most insurances cover the costs of the assessment. If necessary, patients will be referred to an Ophthalmologist or another medical specialist.

THE CLASSICAL VISION ASSESSMENT Checking for visual acuity (20/20 vision)
FOCUSING ABILITY Changing focus from near to far (for example, copying from the black-board at school)
ASPECTS OF DYNAMIC VISION Do the eyes move together? Does one eye lag behind? How do they behave when reading a text?
CONJUGATE EYE-MOVEMENTS TOWARDS THE NOSE Can the eyes focus on an item close by without one eye wandering off? Checking for Double Vision
Assessment of visual information processing Visual information processing refers to the visual cognitive skills that allow us to process and interpret meaning from the visual information that we gain through our eye-sight. Visual perception plays an important role in spelling, mathematics, and reading.
