Vision Evaluation

Vision Evaluation - SIMRExperienced optometrists provide diagnostic vision evaluations that include an assessment of three areas  of visual function including visual integrity, visual efficiency, and visual information processing. Visual integrity includes an assessment of visual acuity, the need for eyeglasses, and the health of the eyes and visual fields. Visual efficiency includes an assessment of binocular vision (eye teaming), accommodative (focusing), and eye movements (tracking). Visual information processing includes an assessment of the patient’s ability to analyze, interpret, and make sense of the visual information.


Vision Therapy/Vision Rehabilitation

Vision therapy/rehabilitation can be divided into two distinct categories; compensatory rehabilitation and remedial rehabilitation.

  • Compensatory vision rehabilitation (low vision therapy) refers to treatment designed to allow the patient to function more effectively in activities of daily living in spite of the presence of a chronic health problems.  The goal is not to eliminate the underlying disorder.  Examples include vision rehabilitation for visual impairment secondary to eye disease. 
  • Remedial rehabilitation refers to treatment designed to eliminate the underlying vision/auditory problem. Examples include the treatment of visual efficiency problems including eye alignment (binocular vision), focusing (accommodation), tracking (eye movement), visual and auditory processing problems, and vestibular disorders.
