What is Children’s Vision & Behavioural Optometry?

Children’s Vision and Behavioural Optometry is a philosophy of vision care that looks beyond the health and clarity of sight. It is an expanded area of optometry that looks at the functioning of the eyes and the brain together, rather than individually.

What are Behavioural Optometrists?

Behavioural optometrists have a special expertise in children’s vision, patients with learning-related vision problems, traumatic brain injury, binocular vision dysfunction, as well as training in enhancing visual skills for different sports.
