Parkinson's Disease

What is Parkinson's Disease and How Does it Affect Me?

Parkinson’s diseases is a slow progressive disorder of the nervous system causing dysfunction of motor organization. This affects posture, balance, and speech. Visual field neglect or loss are also common with Parkinson’s patients, leaving them with difficulties on how to visualize space and move throughout their world.

Double vision, blurry vision, trouble keeping eyes open, and words moving or blurring are common symptoms for patients with Parkinson’s. When such difficulties occur, the confidence in the way someone moves throughout their day changes and the world looks totally different.

Test We Run

Functional Visual Field - This test provides a quick and efficient view of the functional visual color fields. These show us the relationship between the visual system, the body, and the how much space one is able to process and interact with at one time.

Balance Test & Body Mapping - Using a balance board and computerized system, we are able to asses how well your eyes and body work together. This test helps give insight on which sensory inputs, like vision and vestibular, are being used effectively to keep you balanced or if there is any dysfunction in the balance between the systems.

Our doctor also performs a body mapping and alignment assessment that uses specialized yoked prism lenses to help identify a visual mid-line shift and better align the body and visual system. RightEye - A 5 minute ocular movement test that uses infrared light to track eye movement and tests baselines for vision tracking, eye-teaming, eye-hand coordination, and other visual tracking impairments.
