Behavioural Optometry has a more holistic approach to the treatment of vision and visual perceptual problems.
Behavioural optometrists believe that your visual status and the way you interpret what you see is not just dependent on how clear your eyesight is. Consideration must be given to all your visual, visual motor and visual perceptual skills.
Your behavioural optometrist will consider not only the remediation of any eyesight difficulties but also the benefits of prevention, protection and enhancement of your visual system in order to improve all aspects of visual performance.
Treatment often includes the use of specially-designed lenses and prisms, along with instructions related to visual hygiene.
