For the patient with complaints beyond blurred sight. This evaluation includes all testing performed in a general vision exam as well as numerous sensorimotor (visual functioning) and perceptual (visual thinking) tests.

Candidates for developmental exams often complain of one or more of the following:
- Intermittent double or blurred vision

- Headaches, neckaches, backaches resulting from sustained near-point activities (reading/writing/computer use)
- Fatigue after even short periods of near-point activity
- Clumsiness or poor eye/hand coordination
