As your child learns, grows, and develops, clear vision is one of their most important assets. At Insightful Eye Care, we can book a comprehensive eye test with our professional optometrist to ensure your child’s eyesight is sharp, clear and their eyes are working as efficiently as it can. With practices in Dingley and Richmond, our team is ideally located to assist you with kids eye tests across Melbourne.
While your child may have their eyesight assessed at school screenings and developmental checks, only a professional eye test can give you the full picture. Vision problems can be directly linked to both behavioural and learning difficulties, and unlike adults, children may not be able to identify these problems themselves.
We recommend having your child’s first eye test at around three years of age, with follow-up examinations scheduled annually. It is important to have your child’s eyesight tested before they commence primary school, so to give your child the best chance to excel in their new learning environment.
In a comprehensive examination, our friendly optometrist will determine your child’s prescription and assess their vision, eye coordination and eye health holistically. We strive to create a welcoming environment for patients of all ages, taking extra care to ensure your child is comfortable and well cared for. Parents are welcome and encouraged to stay with their children during the examination, and every test, outcome and recommendation will be explained to you.
To organise an examination for your child, book an appointment at our Dingley or Richmond practices today. The team at Insightful Eye Care would be happy to assist you.
