BEHAVIOURAL OPTOMETRY

WHAT IS BEHAVIOURAL OPTOMETRY?

Behavioural Optometry is about looking at your vision in terms of what you use your eyes for most, such as reading, computer work and learning to read and write, to ensure your vision is working easily and comfortably. This is because, the way that your brain interprets what you see does not depend solely on how clear just your sight is.

 

A Behavioural Optometrist has a more holistic approach in the treatment of vision and visual perceptual problems. Consideration must be given to all your visual, visual motor and visual perceptual skills.

In this way, your Behavioural Optometrist will consider not only the remediation of any eyesight difficulties, but also the benefits of prevention, protection and enhancement of your visual system in order to improve all aspects of visual performance.

Treatment regimes include the utilisation of lenses and prisms, along with visual hygiene instructions.

By definition...

Optometrists who provide behavioural vision care are licensed professionals, focused on prevention and treatment of vision problems, and how vision impacts human behaviour and performance.

Could you benefit from Behavioural Optometry? 

All patients will benefit from the more holistic approach, but it is especially suited to those with eye motor control problems, lazy eyes, developmental delays, neurological damage or learning delays.
