New Technology Available at Vision Northwest, Office of Dr. Curtis R. Baxstrom

We have added a valuable piece of information for our patients in the past week.  We have began using the Diopsys Visually Evoked Potential which allows us to have a purely objective test for vision.  It allows us to determine what infants and nonverbal patients can see by sending a visual stimulus through your brain as it measures both the speed of processing and the amplitude of the signal of the visual pathway.  Besides infants, it can be used for a variety of patients including: cortically visual impairment, delayed visual maturation, amblyopia, traumatic brain injuries and other neurological conditions including MS and stroke.  The important part is that we now have the ability to measure objectively the visual system.  This information can be helpful in diagnosis and evaluating appropriate treatment protocols for visual recovery.
