Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the NeuroVisual Medicine technique?
Screening for BVD
We use our scientifically validated questionnaire and the 5 Minute Cover test to identify patients who most likely have BVD.
Binocular Vision Evaluation
We conduct multiple alignment tests and analysis of posture and gait stability.
We custom fit the patient’s prescription, utilizing increments of microprism (as small as 0.25D) on the horizontal and vertical planes.
What does a NeuroVisual Medicine Specialty encompass?
NeuroVisual Medicine is a clinical specialty that is based upon the optometrist assessing and diagnosing vertical and horizontal heterophorias, and treating the debilitating symptoms of these heterophorias with readily available microprism lenses.
NeuroVisual Medicine also encompasses the hearing and vestibular systems, identifying dizziness, gait/balance disturbances, anxiety and headaches as a result of sound sensitivity. Consulting with otologists is sought for further evaluation of inner ear pathology, and noise canceling devices can provide symptomatic relief.
We provide all needed resources (equipment, business forms/documents, marketing resources, phone support) to enable successful implementation in your practice.
What does training look like?
The goal of this program is to provide you and your staff with all the training and materials necessary to begin practicing NeuroVisual Medicine and to run a successful NeuroVisual Medicine practice, with you being able to see your first NeuroVisual Medicine patient immediately upon your return from training.
