Concussion Assessments - Premier Pediatric Urgent Care Provider in Texas - Little Spurs Pediatric Urgent Care

At Little Spurs Pediatric Urgent Care, we are proud to offer concussion assessments with Oculogica’s EyeBOX. For children 5 years old and up, this four minute test tracks your child’s eye movements to determine whether or not they have a concussion. This test will be accompanied by one of our pediatric specialists examination to confirm the diagnosis.

While all Little Spurs providers are capable of performing a general concussion assessment, the EyeBOX test is an added objective tool to help support the diagnosis.  This tool will be offered at select Little Spurs Pediatric Urgent Care locations. You can be seen for an EyeBOX assessment at the following locations:

Be seen at Little Spurs if:

  • Nausea
  • Mild vomiting
  • Mild headache

Go to the emergency room if:

  • Uncontrolled vomiting
  • Worsening headache
  • Prolonged unconsciousness
About Concussion Assessments

Anyone between the ages of 5-21 years old can have an EyeBOX test done at Little Spurs.

In addition to your normal urgent care visit co-pay or deductible, the EyeBOX will be offered at a private pay rate of $40, as this test is not currently covered by insurance. If you return within 30 days, any additional EyeBOX test will be $20.

For the EyeBOX test, the results are either positive, negative, or undetermined. The test will also be accompanied and supported by a clinical assessment by one of our providers to help interpret the results.

Yes, head injuries can cause fever. We recommend a concussion assessment by a professional. That way a treatment plan can be designed to address the patients needs.
