20/20 Eyesight Doesn’t Mean Perfect Vision

A standard eye exam checks your eyes’ physical health and ability to focus. It also looks for disease and measures your ability to see 20/20. It doesn’t, however, evaluate how well your eyes move or work together (or function). In about 5 minutes, our clinic is able to perform a functional vision test that could transform your life forever.

DID YOU KNOW?

DID YOU KNOW?

  • 50% of vision disorders go undiagnosed.
  • 1 in 4 children have a vision problem that affects learning.
  • 90% of concussions result in eye-movement dysfunction.
  • Most functional vision issues are addressable with simple exercises.

“30% of patients have unidentified binocular function and motor eye misalignment conditions that have important visual, developmental, and/or systemic implications with their everyday lives.”

WHAT’S FUNCTIONAL VISION?

WHAT’S FUNCTIONAL VISION?

It’s the eye-muscle-brain connection that creates your functional vision. And when your vision is out of sync, it impacts your life in BIG (and often unexpected) ways. Poor functional vision affects:

  • Playing a Sport, Physical Coordination
  • Reading a Book or Watching a Movie
  • Driving a Car or Riding a Bike
  • Walking Up or Down Stairs
  • Maintaining Your Everyday Balance

A Sensorimotor Diagnostic Test consists of measurements of ocular alignment in more than one field of gaze, a sensory test of binocular function, and an interpretation/report. As with all special procedures, this procedure is billed separately from a comprehensive eye examination.

 

The evaluation detects, assesses, monitors, and/or manages strabismus and oculomotor conditions including, but not limited to esotropia, exotropia, hypertropia, pseudostrabismus, nystagmus, asthenopia, accommodative spasm, or insufficiency, convergence insufficiency. A sensorimotor examination is necessary to guide the medical and optical management of binocular function and motor eye misalignment conditions.

DEVELOPING THE SKILLS FOR CLEARER SIGHT

Vision therapy is a personalized program of exercises to train your eyes to move, partner, and focus better and trains your brain to better process visual information.

 

 

OPTOMETRIC VISION THERAPY

Optometric vision therapy (or patching therapy) is used to treat amblyopia (lazy eye), and it also can help improve control of strabismus (eye turn).This therapy develops the visual skills of eye movements, teaming, and focusing. It can also change how a patient processes or interprets visual information by improving visual spatial, visual analysis, and visual motor integration ability involved in learning. At Brenart, we offer home-based therapies that are individualized to fit your unique needs. LEARN MORE

A 5-MINUTE TEST COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFE

Our testing will address any Binocular Disorder not identified during a normal exam. We utilize non-invasive eye-tracking technologies to record, analyze and report eye movement at levels of detail not feasible through observation-only exam. This test then allows our team to assign a customized Vision Therapy (VT) training program for vision correction and ongoing care.

 

Following your Comprehensive Eye Exam with dilation to ensure healthy eyes and proper glasses prescription, a separate Visual Efficiency Evaluation (VEE) is performed by the Optometrist. This in-depth assessment provides a baseline measurement for visual skills to be addressed with therapy.

 

After the correct therapy has been prescribed by the Optometrist, a consultation appointment is scheduled with the Vision Therapist to prepare you for your home-based plan. This appointment is typically 30-45 minutes in length. The weekly therapy prescribed is meant to be completed at home over the course of 8 to 12 weeks. Each therapy plan is individualized to fit the visual needs of each patient. Techniques may involve lenses, prisms, filters, patches, specialized vision therapy equipment, and computerized programs.

 

RIGHT EYE VISION THERAPY

RIGHT EYE VISION THERAPY

Righteye vision therapy provides a way for visual skills to be improved whether it is a child struggling with school, someone looking to improve at sports, or even someone looking to regain visual function post stroke or concussion. This therapy is something that can be done at home and is personalized for each patient. The therapy takes only about 20 minutes a day and yields great results for patients.
