SPECIALISED CHILDREN VISION

Good vision is essential for learning.

Children should have an eye examination with an optometrist as early as possible BEFORE they start school. We have the equipment and training to carry out a thorough eye examination, checking all the aspects of your child’s vision which are important to learning.
If your child has a problem, the key to preventing long term vision problems is early detection. Correcting a child’s vision problem from as early as birth to 3y.o. can significantly reduce the risk of having a vision problem for life. If there is a family history of eye sight problems, if your child is having problems in school or you are worried about your child’s vision in any way, bring them along to us and ask for an eye examination. Always remember those undetected vision problems can cause learning and behavioral problems.

We may be able to control the progression of Shortsightedness (Myopia) with Speciality Contact Lenses, called "Myopia Control"

Signs that your child may have a problem with their vision include:

  • Complaining about not being able to see the black/white board or TV, sitting too close to the TV
  • An eye turning in or out
  • Holding things too close to the face, or too far away
  • Frequent Headaches (especially in older children)
  • Eye rubbing and blinking
  • Strange head tilts or narrowing of the eyes trying to see better
  • Reduced attention span at activities
  • Avoidance of reading or close work
  • Covering one eye or tilting the head
  • Difficulty in reading, repeatedly losing place on page
  • Poor memory retention of what has been read or studied
