Visual Assessments

At Orthovision, visual assessment covers functional vision, perceptual skills, and the sensory system. INPP screening assesses Neuro-Motor development. Results inform therapy recommendations, and most insurances cover the assessment costs, with referrals to specialists made as needed.

The visual evaluation at Orthovision consists of the Developmental Visual Cognitive Assessment and Comprehensive Functional Visual Assessment that include 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 tests’ children would have INPP screening for Neuro-Motor immaturity. This is very important component of the assessment as it helps us to have an insight 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 for children or Comprehensive Functional Visual Assessment for adults. 


Most insurances cover the costs of the assessment. If necessary, patients will be referred to an Ophthalmologist or another medical specialist.

Visual Assessment

This examines key factors like vision's impact on learning and work, accommodation, strabismus, lazy eye, sports vision, blurred vision, moving words, double vision, headaches, and age-related long-sightedness. This evaluation provides a holistic view of visual health, helping identify and manage potential eyesight issues.

Acuity /Eye Sight

Accommodation, managed by the ciliary muscle, lets the eye shift focus. Many children with learning difficulties (up to 96%) face issues like difficulty copying and sloppy handwriting related to accommodation. In adults, accommodation declines by the 5th decade due to modern lifestyles and screen use.

Accommodation(Focus Ability)

Convergence Insufficiency (CI) is a common childhood issue causing eye strain and headaches. It can be unnoticed and lead to mislabeling. Studies show a link between CI and attention. It can also emerge in adulthood, noticeable in the late 30s or early 40s due to factors like screen use. Recognizing and addressing CI is crucial for better eye health.


Ocular accommodation and vergence are essential for effective eye-teaming, ensuring the eyes send similar images to the brain for a clear and single perception. Dysfunction in these systems can lead to difficulties in accurate and swift eye movements, affecting activities such as reading and sports, impacting a child's self-esteem and confidence.


The two-hour INPP assessment identifies personalized movement and therapy programs for individuals dealing with Neuro-Developmental Immaturity. Clients receive a detailed report and discuss a tailored training schedule in a follow-up meeting.
