The BVDQ™ is the most powerful and reliable tool developed to identify those who most likely have Vertical Heterophoria and will respond to treatment. This validated survey instrument asks a wide array of questions from the 7 main symptom groups, resulting in the identification of many VH sufferers. The BVDQ is the first step for every patient on their NeuroVisual Medicine healing journey. Having the power to identify these patients and transform their lives (i.e - 80% reduction in symptoms) is something NeuroVisual Medicine Specialists cherish.
While the BVDQ™, informs the doctor that the patient would benefit from a NeuroVisual Examination, the 5-Minute Cover Test™ demonstrates this need to the patient. If the patient experiences symptom relief while being made monocular during the 5-Minute cover test, they most likely have a binocular vision issue, clarifying to them that obtaining a NeuroVisual Exam is their path to feeling better.
So your patient is complaining of migraines and anxiety – is it BVD or VH? Binocular Vision Dysfunction (BVD) and Vertical Heterophoria (VH) are two of the least understood conditions in optometry today. This guide will give you a primer about what to look for and what to do next!
After trying these two tests with your patients, you will quickly become aware of the large number of your patients who could benefit from a NeuroVisual Examination and treatment with microprism lenses, as well as the finacial impact that caring for this patient population could have upon your practice. Don't miss out on this opportunity to transform your patients lives: become a NeuroVisual Medicine Specialist and learn how to diagnose and successfully treat their Vertical Heterophoria.
