On your initial visit, Dr. Jaclyn Munson will perform a complete vision and dilated ocular disease assessment to determine in what area your vision could be causing you problems and how it can be improved. Dr. Munson and her team will then map out a series of diagnostic eye fitness tests to uncover how your eyes and brain collect and distribute visual information together.
See below for our recommended reading list and bring any questions that you may have.
Vision Performance Evaluation
Eye Fitness Test
Get ready, set, go! During this visit with Dr. Munson, your eyes and brain will experience an obstacle course designed to evaluate how they gather visual information and work as a team. The pillars of your vision will be scored including eye tracking, fusion, depth perception, visual stamina, visual efficiency and more. It’s a lot like American Ninja Warrior for your eyes and brain!
Visual Information Processing Skills
Inspector Gadget hats on! These visits are designed to evaluate how your eyes and brain interpret visual information. Our Vision Performance Team will deliver tests asking, “How do your eyes and brain process information and what are your strategies to produce an answer?” Please submit your completed Symptom Checklist at this time.
Diopsys: Visually Evoked Potential (VEP)
How do primary visual pathways travel through your brain? This objective diagnostic technology utilizes sensors applied topically to the front and back of the head to measure how the magno-cellular and parvo-cellular visual pathways respond to signals. How strong, how consistent, and how fast does your brain see? We are the only practice in Northern Colorado to offer this state of the art analysis – this is cool eye stuff!
Visual Field Testing
Are there sections of your vision missing from a concussion, head injury, stroke, or neurological concern? Do you have a visual field defect in one or both of your eyes? This subjective diagnostic technology will answer these questions and allow us to “see what you see.” It’s like a nerdy eye video game with a clicker button and everything!
Vision Performance Consultation
Let’s get the team together! Dr. Munson will reveal the detailed results of your evaluation and discuss options to implement the prescribed course of treatment. This is the perfect opportunity to invite all parents/caregivers, grandparents, financiers, transporters, allied health professionals (OT, PT, teachers, tutors, etc) to collaborate together. It is recommended to bring your questions from the suggested reading list (see below). Winning for us means you retain and enhance your visual skills so you can master the visual obstacles in your daily world.
