Vision Baseline Tests

by on May 12, 2010

The baseline tests were completed and the results are in.  Take a look at a few of the more telling results…

Here is a photo of a test of her hand-eye spatial coordination.  The nine squares are targets.  The orange marks are where her eye-aimed pencil located them.

As you can see, her spatial perception is a bit “squashed” but not bad overall. 

Here is the sketch that Satomi was composing while looking at a pear with one eye closed.  The one on the right is with her right eye and the one on the left is from her left eye.

Now here is a “photoshopped” version of what a normal-seeing person would sketch.

Looks like something is wrong huh?

Here is a photo of the results of a computer test that measures peripheral vision of specific colors.  The upper plot is for the left eye and lower plot for the right eye.

Her left eye-her good eye-has only half the peripheral vision of a normal person.  But here’s the twist:  her right eye only has half of that.  Not good.

The Neuro-Optometrist recommended a full regime of vision therapy and a session of “special” therapies.  It was good to hear that the Optometrist was optimistic that improvement would be made.  Unfortunately, portions of this therapy would be redundant to Satomi’s Vestibular Therapy so there will be a point in the near future that will require us to make a choice.  I guess we’ll have to see how it goes.

We’ve already given our approval to start the process.  If all goes well, it should start sometime during the week of May 24th.
