Mendakota Pediatrics is one of a few offices in the metro that have this critical eye test.
The Enfant® Pediatric VEP Vision Testing System is an easy-to-operate, child-friendly, non-invasive medical device used to test for visual deficits in children six months of age and older. TheEnfant® is the only objective visual testing device for the pediatrician available today that is capable of evaluating the entire visual pathway to detect visual deficits such as optic nerve disorders, severe refractive errors, and other problems that could lead to amblyopia. How it works: After positioning three sensory pads on the child’s head, an operator initiates the test. Fun pictures appear and music plays while a series of six black and white stimuli alternate on a video display. Using Visual Evoked Potential technology (VEP), TheEnfant® recognizes the vision system’s neurological responses and processes the VEP data.
At the completion of each Enfant® vision test, simple “pass/fail” results are immediately presented on the menu-driven operator screen in both graphic and numeric formats. The results are then printed out for the patient’s medical record.
