CN II- Optic
Cranial nerve two is the optic nerve. I am now going to check visual acuity using a
Handheld Snellen Chart. Please read the lowest line that you can see clearly. Have pt read line
with one eye covered, the other eye covered, and both eyes open. Report three numbers to
proctor. Pt scored a ___/____ which means what the average person can see at ____ ft, she can
see at ____ft. I am now going to check the visual fields. Please hold up a finger when you can
see my hand on each side. Wiggle fingers from the middle of the head, top of head, and bottom
of head. Pt’s visual fields are normal. I would check the optic disk with an ophthalmic scope.
