Visual Tests

All we got done today between schoolwork and karate class were a few visual tests. If you're wondering why I'm doing all these tests at home when I plan on having him tested professionally, the answer is that I just didn't have enough to do so I was looking for something to fill my time. Or not. Actually, the program calls for retesting every four weeks to quantify progress. I need a benchmark to see how we're doing. Also, I can't tell others if the program works (or doesn't) if I don't do it all completely.

Visual Dysfunction Checklist: 42 (scale 10-100)
Light Sensitivity Test (dilation): Right eye 7 seconds, left eye 14 seconds with sensitivity; indicates weak right-side Level 2
Fast-tracking Test: I couldn't spot any of the issues in this test Level 3
Slow-tracking Test: No fixation Level 1

His first of two testing sessions is Monday morning. I wanted to be done with my testing before that so he wouldn't know that I was testing him or what I'm looking for. I'm not sure that will happen. Our plans for the weekend changed suddenly tonight. It's not a deal-breaker, though. I can do it Sunday evening or Tuesday if I have to. His second testing session is Friday and we'll find out the results the following Monday.
