CHILDREN’S VISION

Did you know, 1 in 10 Australian children suffer from a long-term eye disorder? Vision problems in school-aged children can disrupt the learning process and impair their educational, physical and social growth.

Children

Children require a full eye test every one or two years, so parents can have a complete understanding of their eye health.

Babies

Babies can also be tested to ensure they’re meeting the normal developmental milestones.

As Optometrists

We holistically treat optical issues by considering all visual, visual motor and visual perceptual skills. Treatment programs can include visual therapy, visual hygiene techniques and the use of lenses and prisms to remediate issues as well as prevent, protect and enhance children’s eyesight.
