🔴 What's included in the Binocular Vision Exam?


Visual Function Evaluation determines the quality of your vision (how well you can see) and measures important visual skills.


Oculomotor Function Evaluation determines the function of the extraocular muscles of the eyes.


Ocular Posture Evaluation determines how closely a person’s eyes are directed toward a target (visual aim).  This can be skewed by a misjudgment of either the

person’s or the target’s location.


Sensorimotor Evaluation determines individual's sensory and motor fusion functions.  Sensory fusion is the ability to appreciate two similar images, one with each eye and interpret them as one.  Motor fusion is the ability to align both the eyes in such a way that sensory fusion may be achieved.


Accommodation Evaluation determines the individual's ability to adjust the focus of the eyes as the distance between the individual and the object changes.
