Behavioural Optometry

Beyond Seeing Clearly

A Behavioural Optometrist is about vision that focuses on the relationship between the eyes and the brain and how this affects vision and visual perception.

We can also treat conditions such as amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (crossed or turned eye), and difficulties with eye coordination or visual processing.


Behavioural Optometry for Adults

Are you experiencing any difficulties with your vision beyond your eyesight, It can also be beneficial for individuals who experience eye strain or headaches when performing visual tasks, or those who want to improve their athletic performance through enhanced visual skills. A Behavioural Optometrist could help you to enhance your visual processing.

Behavioural Optometry involves an assessment of your vision, your lifestyle and your work need.  From this assessment, if necessary, a treatment plan will be organised.   This may include vision therapy, vision tools used for certain tasks and/or specific glasses.

Retraining Your Eyes After Injury

Behavioural Optometry can also be used for adults who have been injured from causes such as concussion, whiplash, or a head injury. 
Read more about concussions and vision here. Depending on the severity of the injury, Eyes by Design will work with you to train your eyes and brain to work together.
Behavioural Optometry can also be useful for visual problems that arise after people suffer a stroke or from neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease.

Behavioural Optometry for Children

Children assume they see the same as everyone else and rarely report any issues or problems with their vision.  Children will assume blurry objects, headaches or eye strain are normal and don’t think to ask or complain about it.

Vision problems not only affect how a child sees, but it can also affect their performance at school.  They can worsen as they get older if left untreated or create further problems later in life.  The only way to be sure that your child does not have a vision problem is to have their eyes examined by a Behavioural Optometrist.

Eyes by Design have set up a Children’s Vision Clinic specifically for growing child’s needs, their specific eye problems and improving their learning and development.
