Binocular Vision Evaluation
UECLA

To determine the full extent of your vision problem and your best treatment options, the first step is a Binocular Vision Evaluation.

When our two eyes move the way they are supposed to, we are able to easily see and understand what we see. The Binocular Vision Evaluation is focused on how well our eyes work together when looking up close for activities such as reading, as well as in the distance.

If your eyes are not working together correctly, a variety of problems can occur.

  • □ Do you lose your place when reading or doing close work?
  • □ Do you lose concentration when reading or doing close work?
  • □ Do you have to reread the same line of words when reading? 
  • □ Do you feel like you read slowly?    
  • □ Do you have trouble remembering what you have read? 
  • □ Do you feel sleepy when reading or doing close work?  
  • □ Do you notice the words blurring or coming in and out of focus when reading
       or doing close work?
  • □ Do you have double vision when reading or doing close work? 
  • □ Do you have headaches when reading or doing close work? 
  • □ Do your eyes ever hurt when reading or doing close work? 
  • □ Do your eyes feel tired when reading or doing close work? 
  • □ Do your eyes feel uncomfortable when reading or doing close work? 
  • □ Do your eyes ever feel sore when reading or doing close work? 
  • □ Do you see the words move, jump, swim or appear to float on the page when
       reading or doing close work?
  • □ Do you feel a "pulling" feeling around your eyes when reading or doing close
       work?

If you answered yes to any of the above, we recommend scheduling a Binocular Vision Evaluation.

The Binocular Vision Evaluation takes approximately 1.5 to 2 hours. Once the evaluation is completed, the doctor will discuss the results and treatment options. Eye tracking, eye focusing and eye coordination disorders are typically treatable.

Additional testing is sometimes needed, especially when a school-aged child is having difficulties with academic performance.
