ASSESSMENT / MANAGEMENT
We often overlook the importance of how the two eyes interact. Binocular vision, or eye teaming is the process where the brain integrates the information from the two eyes to form a clear, comfortable and single vision.
Binocular vision impairments can be present from birth and negatively impact a child's ability to perform visual tasks in the classroom. Children with amblyopia (lazy eye) or strabismus (eye misalignment) are not able to use both eyes effectively. Adults can also experience binocular vision problems as the result from traumatic brain injury, a stroke, or a nerve palsy.
Extensive use of digital devices are linked to accomodative and binocular vision stress.
Most binocular vision dysfunction can be easily corrected with prism lens prescription.
