Visual Motor Abilities

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.
  • Fixation – The ability to steadily and accurately gaze at an object and to sustain that position.
    • Nystagmus is an uncontrollable shaking of the eyes.
  • Pursuits – The ability to smoothly and accurately track, or follow, a moving object
  • Saccades – The ability to quickly and accurately look, or scan, from one object to another
  • Accommodation – The ability to accurately focus on an object of regard, sustain that focusing of the eyes, and to change focusing when looking at different distances
  • Convergence – The ability to accurately aim the eyes at an object of regard and to track an object as it moves towards and away from the person
  • Binocularity – The integration of accommodation and convergence
  • Stereopsis – Depth perception

Dear Valued Patient,

At Family Eye Care, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top concern.

Our office has a long-standing practice of disinfecting all areas of our office throughout the day, and all clinic areas are disinfected prior to every patient seen.

As always during the peak of flu season, and with the growing concerns around the Coronavirus, we have taken extra measures to increase frequent cleaning and have provided additional training and precautions to our staff to help keep their health and yours safe.

As a reminder, if you have fallen ill, have traveled abroad, or had close contact with someone who has traveled abroad within the past 14 days and are due to be seen for an appointment, please let our office know. We will be happy to change your appointment to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.

Family Eye Care Team
