What is Behavioural Optometry?
Behavioural optometry is a fast-evolving aspect of optometric practice. Taking the holistic approach to eye care, our emphasis is on the prevention and rehabilitation of vision problems, as well the enhancement of visual skills in our patients.
Our aim is to ensure that your eyes and brain are working efficiently together to provide you with optimal vision and a better understanding of what you are seeing.
What is Vision Therapy?
Vision Therapy is an important aspect of Behavioural Optometry that focuses on developing and improving a patient's visual performance, specifically when spectacles are inadequate. Vision therapy is designed to improve patient awareness around their use of visual skills, by having patients perform tailored activities in a specific developmental order.
This dynamic method is used to treat a variety of conditions, such as; strabismus (turned eye); amblyopia ('lazy' eye); visual stress; accommodation and convergence (eye focusing and eye teaming), eye movement and visual processing dysfunctions.
Do you see adult patients, or does your practice specialise in children's vision only?
Our patient base includes all ages, from infants through to retirees. Our optometrists are qualified to conduct routine eye examinations, assess people with basic visual problems, and treat patients with more complex eye conditions.
The services we offer extend to both mobile patients and those with special needs, who may be confined to wheelchair.
