The optometric examination1

The Optometric Examination

  • Basic Binocular Vision Testing

    • Cover Test

    • Near Point of Convergence

    • Stereopsis

      If Strabismus is present, a Strabismus Evaluation is indicated and should be performed by an eye doctor who evaluates and treats strabismus patients.


The optometric examination2

The Optometric Examination

  • Refraction

    • Objective methods: Retinoscopy and auto-refraction

    • Subjective methods: Interactive with the patient, “Which is better, one or two?”

      Nystagmus patients may have high amounts of astigmatism that can go uncorrected. It is important to correct it.

The Optometric Examination

  • Eye Health Examination

    External Eye Examination

    Internal Eye Examination


Treatment of idiopathic congenital nystagmus

Treatment of Idiopathic, Congenital Nystagmus

The comprehensive management for the nystagmus patient should include treatment of all associated conditions, as well as improve the characteristics of the nystagmus wave form.

Considerations for treatment:

  • Proper refraction and full correction

    Glasses

    Prisms

    Contact Lenses


Treatment of idiopathic congenital nystagmus1

Treatment of Idiopathic, Congenital Nystagmus

2. Addressing binocular vision concerns

3. Surgery

Strabismus Surgery

Nystagmus dampening surgery

Treatment of Idiopathic, Congenital Nystagmus

4. Vision Therapy - The Goal of Vision Therapy is not to dampen the nystagmus, but rather to improve visual acuity.


Definitions

DEFINITIONS

  • ASTIGMATISM

    A refractive condition in which light rays do not focus at a single point, rather focus at 2 lines. Therefore, it requires 2 separate powers to bring both lines in focus to a single point.

  • AMBLYOPIA

    Any eye that doesn’t see 20/20, or for certain cases, a difference between eyes that is greater than 2 lines of acuity.

  • LAZY EYE

    Laypersons term for amblyopia but many mistakenly use it to describe an eye turn.


Definitions1

DEFINITIONS

  • STRABISMUS

    Any eye turn, in or out, up or down, intermittent or constant. Can have a combination of directions (i.e. in and up)

    • ESOTROPIA - Right or left eye turning inward (or alternating between eyes), can be a constant or intermittent turn.

    • EXOTROPIA - Right or left eye turning outward (or alternating between eyes), can be a constant or intermittent turn.

    • HYPERTROPIA – Right or left eye turning upward.


Definitions2

DEFINITIONS

  • DEPTH PERCEPTION

    Perception of relative or absolute difference in distance of objects from the observer. Can occur with or without binocular vision. Perception of a third dimension.

  • STEREOPSIS

    Binocular visual perception of three dimensional space, based on retinal disparity.

  • BINOCULAR VISION

    Pertaining to using both eyes simultaneously, so that each eye contributes to the image seen.

  • VISION THERAPY / ORTHOPTICS

    The teaching and training process to improve visual perception and coordination of the 2 eyes. Goals include improving visual acuity, elimination of strabismus, comfortable binocular vision.


Vision therapy

Vision Therapy

  • Traditional Vision Therapy(can be done both at home and at the doctor’s office)

    • Fusional Vergence Training

    • Anti-suppression Training

      • Brock String

      • Tranaglyph

      • R/G trainers

    • Accommodation (focusing) Training


Vision therapy1

Vision Therapy

  • Foveation Tasks

    • Vertical line counting (may start at oblique angles)

Conclusions

Conclusions

  • Home Vision Therapy can be used to supplement or replace office-based therapy.

  • Home VT is designed to address binocular vision deficiencies as well as increase foveation, which generally leads to increased visual acuity.

  • A decrease in amplitude , frequency or intensity of the nystagmus does not necessarily lead to increased visual acuity.


Conclusions1

Conclusions

  • Patients report successful treatment based on improved quality and comfort of vision.

  • Subjective improvement seems to be greater than the measured visual acuity.
