Chicago-Area Pediatricians Offering Unique Test to Detect Vision Problems in Children as Young as Six Months of Age

Area Pediatric Offices Now Offering the Enfant(TM) Pediatric VEP Vision Testing System, Providing Early Detection for Better Treatment Outcomes

CHICAGO, May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- If your child had vision problems, you'd be able to tell, wouldn't you? Maybe not, says Barry Goldman, M.D., pediatrician at Children's Health Center in Gurnee.

"Children are incredibly adaptable and learn to cope with vision deficits, even those they've had since birth," says Dr. Goldman "This allows many childhood vision problems to go undetected, which can lead to learning issues and behavioral problems, especially as children enter school and have difficulties as a result."

Approximately 200,000 children are born each year with vision deficits, making vision problems one of the most common pediatric health issues in the United States. However, until a child can accurately respond verbally to the letters on a standard eye chart (typically around school age), it is often difficult, even for doctors, to determine if a child is seeing properly. However, a new, child-friendly test being offered by Dr. Goldman's practice and several others in the Chicago area is providing parents with objective information about the development and function of their children's vision system.

Using Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) technology, the Enfant(TM) Pediatric VEP Testing System provides pediatricians with a unique diagnostic tool to assess patients as young as six months of age. Treatment of a vision deficit is most successful when it is detected early.

The Enfant objectively detects issues earlier than traditional vision tests because it works by using VEP and proprietary software to evaluate the child's entire vision system (from the eye to the brain) without the need for the patient to respond. The test utilizes a flat panel screen that features fun, child-friendly characters and gra
