Children and adolescents – It is important to have regular assessments to ensure optimal visual processing.
A behavioural problem may be related to poor visual perception without a child being aware.
To copy blackboard information, to understand what we see, to remember what we read, to sound out words, good visual motor integration is essential and these perceptual skills can significantly influence a child’s learning ability.
If your child is having problems coping in the classroom talk to us about having an assessment of their visual processing.
Aged care optometry – As we get older, our eyes change and become more susceptible to a range of health issues.
Early signs of cataract development can be detected and established cataracts should be monitored. We refer patients where surgery may be indicated to an ophthalmologist.
Diabetics have an increased risk of certain eye diseases such as;
Cataracts – clouding of the eye’s lens. Cataracts may develop at an earlier age in people with diabetes.
Glaucoma – a pressure increase of the fluid inside the eye which can lead to optic nerve damage and loss of vision. A person with diabetes is nearly twice as likely to get glaucoma as other adults.
Diabetic retinopathy – damage to the blood vessels in the retina.
There may be no symptoms in the early stages of these diseases. It is therefore essential that people with diabetes have regular eye examinations.
