We have listed some visual motor abilities that our practice can address & treat in the event of a visual disorder.
- Eye Alignment refers to where the eyes are pointing.
- Phoria: If the eyes are straight and aligned the eye posture most of the time.
- Strabismus: If an eye turns in, out, up or down compared to the other eye, then the eyes are not straight or aligned. Here are some forms of Strabismus:
- Exotropia is where an eye turns out.
- Esotropia is where an eye turns in.
- Hypertropia is where an eye turns up
- Hypotropia is where an eye turns down.
- These can also occur in combination, such as hyper- exotropia, or hypo-esotropia.

- Nystagmus is an uncontrollable shaking of the eyes.
- Pursuits – The ability to smoothly and accurately track, or follow, a moving object
