Optometrists who provide behavioural vision care:

  • Are licensed professionals with post graduate education and advanced competence, in the neurology, development, prevention and treatment of vision problems, with an emphasis on how vision impacts on an adult’s or child’s performance and behaviour. Vision problems can affect the ability to read and write, use computers and I-devices, play sport, and walk. Behavioural effects of vision problems can include headaches, eyestrain, reduced working concentration and comprehension, avoidance of reading, as well as reduced abilities to achieve in education, work and play to a person’s full potential.
  • Provide assessment and treatment of adults’ and children’s vision, prescribing spectacle and contact lenses, prisms, filters, vision therapy, and advice, to manage:
    • Eye health, encompassing nutrition, general health , and the effects of psychological and physiological stress
    • Focus and eye coordination flexibility and stamina problems which can affect visual attention, comfort and performance when reading and writing and using computers
    • Development of tracking eye movement abilities for reading concentration and fluency
    • Visual dysfunctions, including eyestrain due to focusing problems and convergence weakness, associated with excessive reading or near visual work including computers and digital hand - held devices (including mobile phones).
    • Myopia (blurred distance vision) which has been scientifically shown to be associated with repeated excessive near visual work, including computer use and/or reading, and eyestrain over a long period of time, and less time outside
    • Amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (turned eye), using prescribed spectacles and vision therapy (which may include VR).
    • Developing a child’s abilities of vision perception (information processing), to ensure age-expected abilities to learn to read and write, to then read to learn, to achieve their full potential, including:
      • visual spatial, for judging distances, coordination and balance
      • visual perception (memory, and visualisation (used in spelling and maths)
      • visual motor (co-ordinate eye-hand skills for writing and sport),
      • visual auditory
      • visual consequences of neurological conditions, such as stroke and head injury, Parkinson’s disease, and concussion and whiplash, (neuro-optometric rehabilitation).
