Children's Vision

Child & ChartChildren's Vision

Statistics show that 1 in 3 primary school aged children has a vision problem.

Children with blurry or uncomfortable vision (sore eyes or headaches) may exhibit reduced attention, poor hand writing and make mistakes when copying from the board in the classroom. Vision problems may also affect a child's ability to learn to read and reading comprehension.

 

What is behavioural optometry?

The way your child interprets what it sees not only depends on how clear your child's eyesight is, but also on the way in which its brain processes visual information. 

Behavioural optometry applies a holistic approach to the treatment of vision and the processing of visual information. This may involve treatment with glasses, prisms or eye exercises.  Behavioural optometry can be particularly helpful in children with learning difficulties.

Two of our experienced optometrists are members of the Australasian College of Behavioural Optometrists.

Following an initial examination, one of our specially trained optometrists may recommend a further assessment of your child's visual information processing abilities. This enables identification of specific areas which require further development. An individual vision therapy program can then developed, tailored to your child's specific needs.
