Cognitive Function

Providing in-depth and comprehensive eye care services is why The Dry Eye & Speciality Center leads the eye care industry. Included within our practice is Cognivue’s Thrive, which assess cognitive function through visual elements to detect early signs of cognitive diseases, such as alzheimer’s and dementia. We also carry Color My Worlds Colorblind Glasses, which helps colorblind individuals see the deficient colors!
Thrive By Cognivue: The American Optometric Association reports a strong association between vision impairment and cognitive decline.
  • The study demonstrates the causal link between severe vision impairment and declines in cognitive function.
  • Cognitive decline and vision impairment often co-occur but the relationship between the two may be a modifiable trait.
  • Interventional strategies to postpone vision impairment may contribute to maintaining physical and cognitive function as we age.
Cognivue Thrive utilizes FDA-cleared technology that’s been used by neurologists test for cognitive function. This 5-minute self-administered computerized assessment evaluates three cognitive domains: memory, visuospatial, and executive function. Cognivue Thrive also measures two speed performance parameters: reaction time and speed processing.
Cognivue Thrive is an adjunctive tool for evaluating cognitive function. It is not a stand-alone diagnostic tool. Clinical contextualization is required. Optometry can be a clear leader in driving early detection of cognitive decline and potentially slowing its progression by emphasizing the recommended use of best visual correction.
