If a patient is a candidate for a binocular vision evaluation, how long should they set aside timewise? What would they expect as part of the evaluation?
The evaluation usually takes about 2.5 hours.
We will develop a detailed history during the visit and review the health information that the patient would have provided us previously like medications, symptoms, and prior treatments. We would do a detailed refraction & sensory-motor diagnostics, and we also run our Neurolens eye-brain machine to measure the imbalance of both horizontal and vertical direction.
We also trial frame your prescription with prisms to develop an accurate prescription. The trial prism lenses are worn during the exam & tested by the patient to detect if symptoms are reduced.
We finally review diet, wellness, different lens tints, noise-canceling headphones, and other alternative approaches to reduce symptoms.
Once we have determined the proper lens solution, the patient selects a frame from our optical.
How do people learn about binocular vision & find you for treatment?
Aside from being found online, we are primarily a referral-based location, where we work closely with patients referred by the Lancaster General Concussion Clinic & Neuro Science Center and the Bryn Mawr Rehab Center.
We often receive additional referrals from other optometrists, ophthalmologists, physical & occupational therapists, and even worker’s comp lawyers.
