The adult population has been neglected as to the standardization and quantification of supplemental screening tests. A population of subjects ages 18 to 35 was tested with specific instructions for seven optometric tests: accommodative rock, prism rock, Groffman Visual Tracing Test modified for ten feet, Groffman Visial Tracing Test, Stern Fixation Test, Percon Saccadic Fixation Test and the Pierce Saccade Test. A statistical analysis was performed and the means are presented . These means can be used in patient evaluation decisions by the optometric profession .
