This two hour evaluation goes above and beyond ’20/20′
vision. Dr. Clark will evaluate how the eyes function and perform. She will
administer a multitude of different tests to assess how the patient performs
and their potential to perform. The information she will glean from these tests
relates directly to performance in professional life, academics, sports,
behavior, and all visually guided tasks. Dr. Clark recommends a comprehensive
eye examination prior to this appointment to assess eye health and baseline
glasses prescription; it should include dilation and refraction. For patients
with brain injury or post-concussion problems, a visual field is recommended.
One week after the Binocular Sensory Evaluation, a
consultation will be scheduled to review the results of the testing. Reports
are provided which explain the results in detail. Reports are also provided for
the referring doctor, pediatrician, primary care doctor, teacher, and any other
professional per patient request.
Some patients will benefit from further testing involving
visual information processing (also called visual perception) to assess how the
brain analyzes the data that it collects visually. How does the patient
interpret what they see? How do they connect it to other things that they know?
How does it fit into their representation of the world? These analysis skills
are critical for everything we do, from driving a car to learning new concepts
in school. Most of all, visual information processing skills are used in
reading. Poor readers may be having difficulty processing the information they
Vision rehabilitation therapy consists of once a week in
office sessions administering a series of activities programmed by Dr. Clark to
remediate visual problems and improve visual skills. These essential skills
include eye tracking, teaming, focusing, eye-hand coordination, depth perception,
visualization, and visual perception. Efficient visual skills enable a person
to learn and are especially important in reading.
