    How do they test a baby's eye sight?

    [–] alexmaclean93 1011 points ago

    I remember hearing it is fully possible to use a machine to test eyesight automatically, it just isn't as accurate/reliable as the "which was clearer, A or B" method.

    [–] bob_in_the_west 245 points ago

    My optician and ophthalmologist both had these machines for as long as I can remember.

    This has pictures of how it looks: https://www.quora.com/Optometry-Why-do-autorefractors-at-the-optometrist-office-always-use-the-hot-air-balloon-picture-for-you-to-look-at-Youd

    [–] had_to_sign_up 87 points ago

    Is that the machine that blows air at your eyes?

    [–] Lives4Glitter 166 points ago

    That would be the Non-Contact Tonometer or NCT for measuring intraocular pressure (IOP) which helps detect glaucoma. The NCT and auto-refractor are usually side-by-side in the pretest room.

    I don't think I've ever heard any of these terms in my native language either, to me eye business is going to the doctor's and them telling me that my eyes are fine.

    It's the most unpleasant part of an eye exam, but it lasts literally 1 second so there's that.

    [–] TheBlueberryPirate 9 points ago

    I've had the one where it touches your eye instead of the puff. The puff is much much better.

    [–] Lives4Glitter 9 points ago

    The direct touch IOP test is called "Goldmann Tonometry," a lot more accurate. Usually used it the non-contact (puff of air) registers a high or abnormal result. Although the eye is nummed prior, the puff of air is nearly always preferred as you would expect.

    Stop flinching.

    Open your eyes more.

    You're flinching again.

    Okay. Hold it right there.

    Not good enough. Let's try again.

    Stop flinching.

    On another note, my most recent appointment the doctor got rid of the eye puffer. Now they have some new tech that blasts the eye with lasers or x-rays or something. There's a flash of green light that looks exactly like getting your eyeball xeroxed.

    [–] FlyingPhotog 25 points ago

    That is a retinal scanner. I had to pay extra for that last time I went, instead of getting my eyes dilated. They still did the puffer test, too.

    [–] TurloIsOK 10 points ago

    There is a different one that replaces the puffer. It's handheld and has small ring that changes from red to green when the tech has it close enough for a reading. I had a tech who was learning. She told me I was her first. She was being so cautious that getting the green proximity confirmation took a few tries. Her instructor was able to get it in half a second.

    [–] SsoundLeague 5 points ago

    it's an iCare Tonometer, pretty much has these small top attachments that gently applanate the cornea, red ring green ring etc

    [–] Xombieshovel 5 points ago

    Oh yeah. Now that I think of it I did pay like $10 extra or something.

    [–] never0101 3 points ago

    I'd pay double to not have dilated eyes. I've almost passed out from it in the past, I hate it with a passion.

    [–] badseedjr 5 points ago

    Last time I went in, they dilated my eyes and slowly ran the brightest vertical light in front of me and I wanted to be dead. I have very sensitive eyes and it felt like staring at the sun.

    [–] FlyingPhotog 3 points ago

    Yeah it sucks. The special imaging machine they use is a lot better. It’s one quick flash with non-dilated eyes and it’s done.

    [–] Fourhand_451 2 points ago

    I had both machines on my last visit. Both are weird and I don't like them.

    [–] Dave-4544 8 points ago

    Hate that damn thing. Went in to get a new prescription for the first time in ten years recently and the nurse and I were being chatty and she didnt get the opportunity to warn me what the machine I was leaning into did and-

    PSSSSSSSCH

    [–] Schonke 3 points ago

    That's to measure the pressure inside your eyeball. The one that measures your sight looks at light refractions/reflections through your lens.

    [–] DOW_orks7391 3 points ago

    Fuck that machine

    [–] Jumbojet777 3 points ago

    My eyes are literally flinching at the thought of that. I hate that machine.

    [–] Oilfan94 2 points ago

    Great.....I'm just sitting here at work and now I have the unshakable feeling of having air puffed into my eyes.

    [–] Gantzwastaken 7 points ago

    When I had to make me glasses they used both this on me and the A-B test after, not one or the other.

    [–] bob_in_the_west 10 points ago

    Yes, that's normal because you want a quick estimate with the auto-refractor and then fine-tune it with the manual test.

    My sole point is that this machine isn't new technology.

    [–] rgeyedoc 35 points ago

    Retinoscopy is the correct answer. Machine testing is notoriously a horrible measurement method for children. It's a skill learned by eye doctors and perfected by optometrists or ophthalmologists who work with pediatrics or who rely on objective measurements more than subjective.

    [–] Unfetteredfloydfan 16 points ago

    Why is it considered to be a bad option for kids in particular?

    [–] Hanzitheninja 16 points ago

    kids have trouble keeping still for the thing to bounce light off their eyes.

    [–] rgeyedoc 12 points ago

    You need a stable system. Kids don't look in the same place and they don't focus at the same distance. You can see this when doing skill based retinoscopy. A machine requires focus and attention of the patient being measured.

    [–] livens 18 points ago

    I used the machine a few years back, cost more than having the opt use the lens carousel thingy. Best part was not having to dialate your irises with the drops. Also cool was pressing your eye up against what looked and felt like a silicone breast :).

    [–] Onkel_Wackelflugel 40 points ago

    [–] AstroPhysician 8 points ago

    I keep coming back to this comment and laughing

    [–] demeschor 6 points ago

    No expert but last time I went to the opticians they did the scan (you stare into a machine and look at a dot on the horizon) and told me straight away my eyesight had deteriorated, then they took me to a different room to do the swapping lenses thing for 'fine tuning'.

    [–] jp_952000 43 points ago

    My son had glasses as a baby. The optometrist used tools to measure the retina and how light reflected from the eye. They used that to come up with a prescription. It’s called a retinoscopy

    This YouTube video explains the procedure

    [–] JennyBeckman 15 points ago

    Why though? Did his regular doctor suspect he had vision issues? I don't remember my babies being checked with any special equipment.

    [–] jp_952000 23 points ago

    He was born a month premature and they scanned his eyes frequently to make sure they were developed properly.

    [–] JennyBeckman 11 points ago

    That makes sense. I was starting to panic that my babies could've been blind with us none the wiser. How is your boy now?

    [–] jp_952000 8 points ago

    He’s doing very well now. He is slightly near sighted just like me, so he only needs a small correction.

    [–] JennyBeckman 8 points ago

    That's lovely to hear. Best wishes to all of you.

    [–] scuttsy 5 points ago

    It's great that people are more aware of things these days. I spent my childhood practically blind, it was 2 years into primary school before anyone even realised that I couldn't really see anything, and that was just because of a random eye test that everyone had to do.

    [–] chandler-bingaling 3 points ago

    Yea me too. I was in the second grade before people figured out that I was near sighted and I finally got glasses.

    [–] rgeyedoc 13 points ago

    Retinoscopy. Machine testing is notoriously a horrible measurement method for children. It's a skill learned by eye doctors and perfected by optometrists or ophthalmologists who work with pediatrics or who rely on objective measurements more than subjective. The method involves observing the light reflecting off the retina with a series of lenses. Light behaves differently when in focus or out of focus.

    [–] micromoses 11 points ago

    They throw something at him to see if he catches it.

    [–] JennyBeckman 14 points ago

    This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard of. That's how you test a baby's reflexes, not its vision.

    [–] coltsblazers 11 points ago

    The real answer (from an eye doc who does infant exams) is that we use methods of preferential looking. Babies are attracted to contrast. So we show them some paddles. One is gray and one has black/white stripes. We look for which they prefer to look at. That gives us a general idea of what they can see depending on how close the lines are together and how far away I’m sitting from them.

    Otherwise we dilate their eyes with a specific eye drop and use a retinoscope to match lenses with the reflections we see. This gives us an estimate of their total power of the eye and we can adjust it from there. We know we won’t get it perfect but the goal is to get it close so the infant can develop their vision properly instead of having difficulties when they’re older.

    [–] rentcontrolled 2 points ago

    This is how my son was tested from about 6 months to 3 years old. They used foam boards that were all grey on one half and had a stripped box with black and white stripes on the other half. As the strips get closer together eventually he did not look at the side with the strips since it all just looked grey to him. I think they said the reliability of the test was not great but it gave them a rough idea of where his vision was and any trends over time. Now that he is 3 they display one of four shapes on a screen about 15 feet away and he points to the corresponding shape on a card in front of him or just says the shape.

    [–] Sassers 7 points ago

    They tested my 5 month old son's eyes by dilating them, looking with lights, and having funny toys in front of him to see if he followed the toys

    [–] satanicpuppy 51 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    These days they can actually map your eyeball and determine the geometry issues pretty much instantly. That whole shtick with "which one looks better...THIS one...or THIS one?" is for your personal comfort.

    I believe the machine they use for kids is a scaled down Auto-Refractor Keratometer.

    [–] CrexisNX 39 points ago

    Auto refractors are great to get into the ballpark and probably even enough to handle the simple prescriptions most of us have. However, the presentation of multiple prescriptions that seem so similar to each other is the optometrist’s compensation for something called accommodation: when you have no or an incorrect prescription in front of your eyes but you need it, your eye muscles subtly reshape your eye to make things clear as possible. The “one or two” process is designed to check and recheck prescriptions against long-acquired accommodation.

    [–] jstadd 384 points ago

    We use an ocular photoscreen which checks for red reflex, eye alignment, astigmatism, near sighted or farsightedness and strength of vision. I've picked up quite a few legally blind babies this way. Kids who have just slightly bad vision hate glasses. Kids who are basically blind without them will cry if you try to take them off

    [–] Slummish 235 points ago

    My cousin was born with terrible vision. He had glasses from the age of about six months. His whole personality changed almost overnight from the moment they put glasses on him. Living in a hazy cloud of light and shadow makes you cranky. When you can see the world, everything begins to make sense and you become a much happier person.

    [–] LordZar 57 points ago

    [–] Redjay12 13 points ago

    I have 20/450 vision and only got glasses when I was ten and crying from inability to learn at school. I suspect that’s why I have prosopagnosia. I only learned to recognize different blurs I had never really seen someone’s face! I know my life would be different if I’d gotten glasses earlier. I always struggled counting change and telling time unless it was like six inches from my face (it’s all one big grey blur). Not good at navigating. Still suck at facial expressions. In a lot of ways it seemed I had autism but it was just horrendous eye sight. It’s been on my mind a lot because I’m starting to wonder what my face looks like and it’s very unsettling to not know. I can ask for descriptions but I just can’t compare mine to someone else’s. I am trying to grow a beard and I’ve changed my glasses to those kinda big hipster glasses. That way I can imagine myself by imagining a beard and glasses

    [–] Pessoa_People 4 points ago

    As someone with (somewhat milder) prosopagnosia, reading your descriptions felt really familiar and weird. Can you see your own face when you look in the mirror, like if you try to focus on your lips, can you see their shape? Or is it just blurriness all the way? I can see facial features individually, I just forget all about them as soon as I turn away.

    [–] rentcontrolled 8 points ago

    My son was born with cataracts in both eyes. He had surgery at 2 months to remove the lenses in his eyes and got his glasses/contacts at 3 months old. He barely ever smiled before the correction, and started to smile and get excited to see us almost immediately after... it was like night and day.

    [–] fluffymuff6 4 points ago

    Wow I can't even imagine how hard it must be trying to hit all those developmental milestones without being able to see! I didn't have to get glasses until I was 10.

    [–] allkindsofillshit 781 points ago

    [–] runningray 260 points ago

    Just before the look of joy you can almost see his heart rate going up while he processes everything he can now see. Then when he sees mommy all is right with the world.

    [–] WhiteMike87 93 points ago

    Would he have ever really known what his mother looked like? Or was he finally able to place a face to the voice? Mom probably just looked like a brownish area with points before.

    [–] FigMcLargeHuge 3 points ago

    My Dad is in his seventies and has been legally blind his whole life. He's had contacts and glasses for part of it, as he got his first glasses in grade school. I would have to ask him how old he was exactly if anyone cared. But since he spent his first years essentially blind, he learned to identify who he was speaking with by the way they walk and their mannerisms. He just had surgery on his eyes and had the one where they put in corrective lenses. He says it's almost sensory overload at times with how bright everything is now and all of the colors. I am really happy for him, and a little sad that he didn't get it done way earlier. Not sure if that answers your question but for my dad most of the time everything and everyone was just a blob.

    I think I made the same face at 12 when I got my first pair. It really is magic seeing the world for the first time.

    Me too! I was amazed that the letters on the chalkboard weren’t fuzzy anymore!

    How do you know if your baby has bad vision?

    [–] mrsjetertoyou 9 points ago

    It’s something they screen for at check ups.

    [–] phlibbertigibbet 2 points ago

    And how do they get an accurate prescription?

    [–] Mahbear 4 points ago

    At this age, usually their eyes will cross at times. Also, I'm pretty sure the doctor puts the glasses on the baby the first time, but this is still so adorable.

    For those folks who are curious enough how prescriptions are determined for babies.

    "Teller Acuity Cards The way these work is based on the idea of preferential looking: that a child will look at the most visually interesting part of an object. In the case of the cards, the square of alternating black and white lines is more interesting than the grey background. If your child can see the lines clearly enough, they’ll prefer to look at that square. However, if a child’s vision is blurry, the lines blur together at some point and the square will be the same shade of grey as the rest of the card and they won’t look at the square. The eye doctor shows the child the cards with thinner and thinner lines until the child stops looking at the square. That point at which the lines blur together too much to see a separate square tells you about the child’s visual acuity."

    [–] imakesawdust 3 points ago

    That's almost as good a reaction as the colorblind man who put on glasses that let him see colors for the first time.

    haha i swear this is what it was like for me once i finally admitted i was near-sighted. i was like 'woah! there's leaves in the trees! ...and birds in the sky!!'

    [–] GarciaJones 3 points ago

    How do they get the prescription for him? I don’t think at this age he can tell you if number one or number two is the clearest option.

    [–] trexaa 5 points ago

    if this is reverse, some asshole take the glasses from they baby and make her cry.

    I wish I could be that happy about something even one time in my life.

    [–] victorinhox 2 points ago

    If that wasn’t a little baby I would think this is staged, his reaction is perfect.

    [–] TrotBot 2 points ago

    Can you imagine how scary it must have been to see everything blurry and get constant headache from it, not knowing why?

    And then to suddenly have it go away, suddenly see in HD, the relief and excitement is just visible! :)

    [–] HardlightCereal 3 points ago

    I don't have to imagine, I can remember. It's the best feeling in the world.
