Have your children had an eye examination in the last year?

Children rarely complain about their eye sight but can often show in their behaviour that there is a problem with their vision.

A full ocular assessment (eye examination) is important for children as visual problems can be detected which may hinder a child’s ability to learn in class. A classic example of this is a child with myopia (short-sighted) who is reported as having poor attention in class due to the child’s inability to see the board.

At City Eyes Ophthalmic Opticians, we run a paediatric clinic which adapts the eye exam to suit children of different ages. We treat our young patients like ‘VIPs’ to ensure that the fear of coming to see the Optometrist disappears upon arrival and they feel at ease.

Vision therapy is a non-surgical and customized program set up by City Eyes Ophthalmic Opticians designed to correct certain vision problems and/or improve visual skills. The clinics are run for both children and adults alike.
