Behavioural Optometry

Transform your vision

Behavioural optometry is an innovative and holistic approach to eye care that goes beyond traditional vision assessments. It focuses on the relationship between vision, visual skills, and overall behaviour. This approach recognises that vision is not just about seeing clearly but also about how the eyes and brain work together.

In behavioural optometry, the emphasis is on assessing and improving visual skills such as eye tracking, eye teaming, and focusing abilities. By addressing these skills, behavioural optometrists aim to enhance not only visual acuity but also overall visual efficiency and comfort.

One of the key benefits for parents considering behavioural optometry for their child is the personalised and patient-centred approach. Behavioural optometrists take the time to understand a child’s unique visual needs, considering factors like school performance, reading habits, and daily activities. This tailored approach allows for the development of targeted interventions to optimise visual function and promote academic success.

Moreover, behavioural optometry is often associated with the use of therapeutic activities and exercises designed to improve visual skills. These activities are engaging and can be an enjoyable part of a child’s routine, contributing to their overall well-being.

By addressing visual inefficiencies and promoting optimal visual skills, behavioural optometry aims to support not only academic success but also overall confidence and comfort in daily activities. It empowers children to use their visual abilities to their full potential, fostering a positive and proactive approach to learning and interacting with the world around them. Overall, behavioural optometry offers a comprehensive and positive approach to vision care, focusing on the individual needs of each child for a brighter and more successful future.
