Pediatric fixation sticks provide a series of detailed accomodation-stimulation targets for the young patient. The targets are calibrated for near. Included are (as examples) a clown face, a dog, a beach ball, etc. Each target is in brilliant color for patient ease.The set consists of three (3) extremely durable plastic sticks with both sides utilized for targets.
Single sticks can be used for performing various tests: unilateral (cover/uncover) test at near, alternating cover test at near, pursuit testing, near point of convergence (NPC), motilities (ductions and versions), vergence facility at near, fixation stability at near in diagnostic positions of gaze, amplitude of accomodation, and accomodative facility. Dual sticks with different optotypes exposed to the patient can be used for saccade testing.
