What is Vision test with Pediavision?

Learn more about this revolutionary technology that detects vision problems. 

Your child’s vision is incredibly important, which means ensuring that your child is getting proper vision testing to catch disorders and problems early on. Here at our Holly Springs, NC, practice, our pediatrician Dr. Maria Castro and the StarLight Pediatrics team offer Pediavision. This state-of-the-art technology can detect vision disorders early in children.

What is Pediavision? 

Here at StarLight Pediatrics, we believe in giving all children the greatest chance for a healthy, bright and happy future, which means making sure that we regularly check their vision. After all, vision problems can lead to developmental issues, poor academic performance and social problems. That’s why our Holly Springs, NC, team offers Pediavision’s Spot vision test.

What is the Spot Vision Screener? 

This innovative technology allows our team to assess your child’s vision by capturing images of the eye in just one second. With the click of a button, we can screen for,

  • Nearsightedness
  • Farsightedness
  • Astigmatism
  • Strabismus (crossed eyes or misaligned eyes)

It can even detect amblyopia, a condition that can often cause blindness in young pre-school-age children.

How does it work? 

When your child comes into our office, we will have them sit down where they will focus their vision on a blinking light. As this happens, the device will safely snap photos of your child’s eyes with infrared light. The whole process is so fast that it practically occurs in the blink of an eye.

What is the benefit of Pediavision’s Spot? 

This technology provides our Holly Springs, NC, team with a quick, painless and non-invasive way to detect common vision problems in children. All children should get regular vision tests from us, and this device makes it easy to catch problems early and provide a report in just one day, saving our patients time and expense.  

A vision test is an important screening tool that all children should undergo. To learn more about Pediavision or schedule a Pediavision screening with our Holly Springs, NC, pediatrician Dr. Castro, call StarLight Pediatrics at (919) 762-5113.
