Ocular Motility Assessment
Ocular Motility Assessment tests eye muscle movement. The patient is asked to keep his or her head completely still and focus on an object, such as a pen, while the doctor moves the object in an "H" pattern about 12 inches from the patient's face. This allows the doctor to check for any restrictions or abnormal movements of the eyes that could signify a medical condition or trauma. Ocular motility assessment can also help determine the cause of double vision.
