In our office Dr. Shah treats Accommodative Dysfunction, Ambylopia (Lazy eye), Strabismus, Convergence Insufficiency and Eye tracking/teaming issues.
These visual disorders can make it very hard for children to properly read, write and learn.
ONE in FOUR children have vision related learning problems! Often times, these children give up in school, and are misdiagnosed with behavioral issues or ADHD.
Here is a great video demonstration on how children can pass a screening with 20/20 vision BUT still have visual disorders that will make it hard for them to read and learn in school.
Vision Therapy Evaluation
Visigraph is an amazing tool we recently acquired for our little patients. The Visagraph uses infrared sensors to track eye movements while you read a passage based on your grade level, and then compares these eye movements with expected norms. The Visagraph, in tracking the eye movements, measures whether or not the eyes are working as a team to process information. The Visagraph measures and graphs eye movements, such as left to right movements, number of pauses while reading, length of pauses, moving right to left and down to change lines, and reversals of eye movements.
