Spot Vision Testing

Spot vision pic 2We are pleased to announce the addition of the Spot Vision Testing Camera to our arsenal of diagnostic tools to help your family be its healthiest. The Spot device comes with a variety of clinical benefits over the Snellen chart. The most important benefit is that this device can be used for children who are unable to speak or read.

Spot is a handheld device that works on children as young as 6 months of age up to adulthood. During the Spot exam, the child sits down and looks into the front of the device where blinking lights are shown. The device is held 3 feet away, which is great for youngsters who like their personal space. Next, a bird chirps to capture the attention of young children. In a matter of seconds a series of photos are taken using infrared light. The photos are then analyzed to determine if their vision is “in range” or “out of range.”

Spot is able to detect a variety of vision problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. It can also detect unequal vision power (anisometropia), eye misalignment (amblyopia), unequal pupil size (anisocoria), and eye structure problems. Spot supports American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) screening guidelines for early detection of amblyopic risk factors

As with most health problems, time is of the essence. Spot’s ability to detect vision problems on young children is important for early intervention. We are offering the Spot vision test as part of a well-visit examination.
