Eye Examinations - Children

Good vision is important for a child’s educational, physical and social development.

 

With approximately 1 in 5 Australian children suffering from an undetected vision problem, it is important to be aware of the possible signs of a vision problem to give every child the best chance of reaching their full learning potential.

Optometry Australia recommends that children have a full eye examination with an optometrist before starting school and regularly as they progress through primary and secondary school.

Our Optometrist Glen McGlip understands that children often have different eye problems than adults. He has completed a Masters in Behavioural Optometry at the UNSW and a Fellowship in Behavioural Optometry at the Australasian College of Behavioural Optometrists, the highest qualification attainable.

Allow 30-45 minutes to have your child’s functional vision thoroughly checked. Visual perceptual testing and therapy is available for children who are having learning difficulties.
