The beauty of the oculomotor system is the objectivity of it's assessment

About RightEye

Your two eyes and brain must all work together to navigate the world. It’s this connection that makes up your dynamic vision. A standard eye exam, however, only checks your eyes’ physical health and ability to focus on stationary objects — it doesn’t measure critical dynamic vision skills such as eye movement and coordination and often can't identify eye movement disorders that are too subtle for a clinician to see. Signs that you may have a eye-movement problem include:

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Rereading or skipping lines of print

  • Short attention span

  • Poor reading comprehension

  • Poor coordination or balance

  • Slow completion of work

  • Previous brain trauma (concussions, strokes)

  • Loss of interest in reading

  • Frequent headaches

We are proud to offer a more comprehensive vision exam using advanced, state-of-the-art eye-tracking technology. The RightEye system enables our doctors to pinpoint functional vision and brain health issues, identify the root cause of reading problems, and post-traumatic brain injury visual dysfunction. In just 5 minutes, this proven, patented technology measures visual skills in ways that a standard eye exam cannot — enabling us to diagnose and treat underlying vision issues that affect our patients’ quality of life, and provide objective baseline measurements to measure progression and improvement with vision therapy.  RightEye evaluates the stability of visual fixation, saccades (fast eye-tracking movements) and smooth pursuits (slow eye-tracking) movements.

How RightEye at Virginia Neuro-Optometry is different

While the RightEye technology itself is impressive in it's ability to document an individual's eye movements and abnormal vs normal, the technology itself is unable to differentiate between developmental vs trauma-induced causation, and can be contaminated by unintentional head movements which can occur in patients with neuro-development disorders, cervical instability/whiplash injury, and vestibular disorders.  At Virginia Neuro-Optometry, Dr Theis uses RightEye technology in addition to her extensive oculomotor exam to evaluate the underlying cause.
