The Enfant® Pediatric VEP Vision Testing System is an easy-to-operate, child-friendly, non-invasive medical device used to test for visual deficits and neuro-visual developmental delays in children six months of age and older. The Enfant® VEP vision test is an objective method to evaluate a child’s entire visual pathway including and beyond structural and refractive errors to help detect visual deficits such as visual asymmetries caused by refractive errors,  optic nerve disorders,  and neuro-visual dysfunction from conditions like amblyopia.

 

At the completion of each Enfant® vision test, “Yes/No” results are immediately presented on the menu-driven operator screen in both graphic and numeric formats for easy identification of further vision testing needs. The results may then be printed for the patient’s medical record.

Why is there a need for VEP Vision Testing?

  • Routine vision tests cannot objectively detect neuro-visual pathway impairments that require timely treatment to prevent lifelong visual impairment.
  • Approximately 25% of preschool children will experience some form of visual problems.
  • Approximately 200,000 children born each year in the United States have visual deficits that can lead to amblyopia if left untreated.
  • Amblyopia, or lazy eye, ranks as the leading cause of monocular blindness.
  • According to the CDC, impaired vision can affect a child’s cognitive, emotional, neurologic and physical development by potentially limiting the range of experiences and kinds of information to which the child is exposed.
  • The earlier visual deficits are detected, the greater the success of treatment and correction.
