The sense of vision is the most complex and critical of our senses. When visual symptoms move beyond basic blurriness, the testing of vision must move beyond a normal eye exam. Our NeuroSensory Center, enables us to dig deeper to solve more challenging visual problems. Our eyes are the end organ of vision, but the neural pathways from the eyes to the brain and the pathways connecting our eyes and ears play a huge role in helping us see and process the world around us. In our NeuroSensory Center, we can directly measure neural pathways of the visual system to assess overall sensory health.
NeuroSensory Diagnostic System
Our neurosensory diagnostic system provides a complete set of non-invasive, electro-diagnostic tests of vision, hearing, balance, and touch. By measuring and mapping the performance of the neurosensory systems, it allows us to identify issues with greater precision, customize a treatment program, and verify the extent of improvement at pre-determined intervals.
What is the Human Neurosensory System?
It is the body’s nervous system related to the various senses such as vision, balance, hearing, and touch.
Who Benefits from Neurosensory Testing
Many patients with complex neurosensory and neuro-processing issues benefit from our testing including those with:
- Reading challenges
- Sensory Integration Disorders
- Autistic Spectrum Disorders
- Head injuries including traumatic brain injury, concussion, or acquired brain injury
- Visual Motor Disorders
- Visual Tracking Disorders
- Poor hand-eye coordination
Advantages of Neurosensory Testing
- Objective measurements to assess complex problems
- Allows Performance Tracking to verify effectiveness of treatment during recovery
Our customized software provides us with easy to read and share results. A sensory map is generated which demonstrates the individual’s sensory accuracy, how consistent the senses are to one another, and overall sensory integration maturity. With many neuro-sensory disorders, we find that the senses are often not in sync with one another. A person’s muscles may be sending one set of signals to the brain, while visual transmissions are communicating differing information. Evaluating how the senses of proprioception, vision, and vestibular are working together provides us with valuable insights into the source of common challenges such as in reading disorders, attention deficits, and writing difficulties.
Treatment plans may include glasses, prisms, contact lenses, vision therapy at our affiliated Vision Learning Center, and biomedical supplements to improve sensory health. Testing allows us properly diagnose, treat, and refer to other professionals as needed. Treatment plans are specific and customized to the particular needs of the patient.
