TYPES OF ASSESSMENTS


1. Learning-Related Vision Assessment


Target population

  • -Individuals - regardless of age - who face challenges in sustaining their literacy/academic/work performance.
  • -Individuals who exhibit common symptoms which include copying problems (eye tracking & eye-hand coordination), losing their place as they read (eye tracking), comprehension problems (poor near vision, eye teaming, visualisation difficulties).

Such individuals typically struggle with the following issues:

  • -Phorias
  • -Issues with coordination (e.g. DCD)
  • -Learning-related problems (e.g. dyslexia, autism, ADHD)
  • -A general challenge to compensate the aforementioned issues overtime.

Should there be any significant red flags detected during the screening, a vision efficiency assessment will be recommended to investigate binocular dysfunctions:

  • -Eye Tracking (Eye Movement)
  • -Eye Teaming (Convergence)

If necessary, other tests (e.g. Visual Stress test)  may also be carried out.

Duration: 40 minutes

- A report will be provided.
