This collection of PDF files will help therapists identify patients that may have vision problems, document ocular motor difficulties, understand vision diagnosis and help identify the doctor that can most efficiently help their patient. It is a part of my most recent course manuals but would be helpful to anyone that wants to learn more about vision.
- Documentation tips-This sheet give tips for documenting ocular motor
- “Who to refer” worksheet-This sheet helps identify which eye doctor is the right one for your patient. But remember, any eye exam is better than no eye exam! Observed behaviors are given a point value. If the patient scores over 20 points, then an eye exam is needed. The colors of the observations help pick the right professional.
- Glossary of Vision Terms-Amblyopia, suppression and many more quickly defined to help you interpret that eye exam.
- Functional Difficulties Checklist-A patient with 5 or more of these problems, could have an undiagnosed vision problem.
- Vision Screening Record form-a complete sheet to track your results with cues for norms too and place for DEM results.
- Eye Exam Reminder-A great flyer to share with parents about when eye exams are needed for their children.
