Children’s Vision

Detail Childeren

Vision is the primary sense that allows babies and children to discover the world and a child’s ability to grow, develop and learn is dependent on good, clear and effortless vision. However, children in particular, are unaware that what they may be seeing or experiencing is NOT normal.

Undiagnosed vision problems can result in learning or behavioural difficulties for children as they struggle to read, see the board, or focus on the computer screen at school. Most vision problems can be corrected, but early detection is the key to reducing its impact.

A view of what your child is seeing when they have an undiagnosed vision problem:

Signs and symptoms to look out for:
  • Frequent Blinking or rubbing of eyes
  • Red or watery eyes
  • Headaches
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Squinting or tilting/turning head
  • Poor concentration
  • Blurred or double vision
  • One eye turns in or out, while the other is straight
We are passionate about your child having the best vision and healthy eyes. We recommend an eye test for children at these ages:
  • between the ages 4.5 - 6 years old: before the child commences school
  • children ages 6 - 18 years old: once a year

This will allow us to monitor their progress as the eye grows and address any issues that could be impeding their overall visual development and growth.
