Frequently Asked Questions.

Are the assessments any different from what I should expect from a standard eye test?

Standard eye tests are designed to detect eyesight problems (eg. Myopia, Astigmatism etc) or eye health, pathological/structural problems (eg. Cataract/Retinal Diseases etc). Referrals from us are often made to the Ophthalmologists for further assessments and treatment in the presence of a structural eye problem. Our assessments include various components of visual efficiency, such as eye tracking, eye focusing, eye teaming etc. Additional tests are also conducted by our educator to check for visual perceptual skills and eye-hand coordination. These results will provide information of the performance of the visual system as a whole, such as why an individual is careless, has poor learning efficiency or reversals problems.

How long are the screening/assessments?

The entire screening/assessment process for new clients takes about 30 to 60 minutes.

Follow-up screening/assessment for established clients usually lasts for 30 to 40 minutes.

Do you provide a report?

A report is provided for assessments. It is not available for screening appointments.

The findings of the report should be relayed to the the various professionals (e.g. psychologists, occupational therapists) who are involved in the support /rehabilitation of the individual.

Do you work with special populations? Like individuals who are non-verbal, for instance?

Yes. Parental/caregiver involvement may be required during the testing.

Can some of these conditions affect an adult too?

Yes. Vision disorders and/or binocular vision disorders can affect an adult due to various reasons (e.g. degenerative disorders, brain injuries or concussions).
