|Assessment of diplopia through Hess screen|
Hess chart is the test used to assess diplopia (squint). It shows the position of the non fixing-eye in all positions of gaze when the other eye is fixing.
The image can be separated in widely differing ways. The most usual way is to separate the image by means of fixation objects in complementary filter goggles in complementary colors (red & green).
The red filter reflects all lights and allows only for the transmission of the red light while the green filter allows only for the transmission of the green light.
