Main Content

Our vision therapy optometrist Dr. Haleo has been specifically trained to use the following tests, for children and adults to evaluate several important areas of vision that often go unchecked during standard "20/20" visual acuity tests. Our comprehensive vision exams evaluate the following:

Acuity at Near and at a Distance

We test how clearly and accurately a person sees at both 20 feet and at close reading distance.

Focusing Skills

We test how well and quickly the eyes are able to adjust their focus on objects at different distances. The eyes’ ability—or inability—to rapidly and automatically adjust focus affects everything from participating in sports to reading and writing in educational and work settings. For example, children with focusing problems may struggle with school work.

Eye Teaming

These tests asses how well your eyes work as a team. Problems with eye teaming can cause depth perception and eye-hand coordination difficulties.

Eye Movement

These tests determine how well the eyes can perform tracking and fixing functions; for example, how well can a student go from reading a line of text at reading distance to following along with the teacher at the front of a class room. Tracking and fixation also affect hand-eye coordination and reaction time.

Reversal Frequency

We test how well you mind your p’s and q’s, b’s and d’s and even short words like “was” and “saw.” When children over the age of 7 persistently confuse these letters, there may be a visual perception problem.

Visual Memory

This portion of the exam determines how well are you able to gather, store, and recall information collected by the eyes.

Visual Motor Integration Testing

These tests asses your ability to coordinate visual input with information from your other senses, such as touch (hand-eye coordination) and hearing (balance), etc.

Why Are These Vision Exams So Rigorous?

If this list of vision exams seems rigorous, you are right. The breadth and depth of these tests enable us to develop comprehensive therapy programs for our patients.

We recommend that all children begin vision testing at least at the ages of 6 months, 3 years (prior to preschool entry) and at age 5 (the summer before kindergarten). Early diagnosis of problems like Amblyopia (Lazy Eye), Convergence Insufficiency (near vision disorder) and other problems can help children overcome and possibly avoid struggling with learning disabilities like dyslexia and conditions like ADD.

Adults should also have annual vision testing to catch problems like hypertension, glaucoma, diabetes, cataracts early, when treatment is more effective.

We can also use these test to assess and develop treatment plans for all ages of people struggling with vision problems due to traumatic brain injuries, autism, whiplash and eye strain from computer usage or reading.

Testimonial

“My son started vision therapy with Dr. Haleo at the beginning of his first grade year. He was struggling with reading and writing, and would become irate when he needed to write something, even something as simple as his name. After a few months of seeing Dr. Haleo, not only did he get better at writing, but he even asked for a paint set!”
