Kids

At Paul Harvey Optometry we love kids, and we know kids love learning.

We also know that a child’s vision can have a great impact on their learning so we’re committed to helping them learn to their best ability.

Behavioural Optometry

Even though a child may have “20/20 vision”, there is much more to good vision for learning, this includes eye teaming, tracking and sustained focusing.

We can assess how their eyes work together for better vision and learning.

Learning Difficulties
& Dyslexia

Vision begins with the eyes, but also needs to be processed by the brain.

Some children may have difficulty processing the information they get from their eyes, and we can help to overcome these problems. This may include using precision tinted lenses.

Myopia Management

Short-sightedness or myopia can make it hard for children to see the world around them. It can also lead to further problems later in life if not managed at an early age.

We have many tools to help to correct vision for myopia, but also to slow down or halt the progression of myopia.

Strabismus & Amblyopia Treatment

Children may have an eye turn or lazy eye, which can affect the ability of the eyes to work together as a team.

There are options to manage these conditions and rehabilitation is available to help the eyes work together better.

Visual Processing Assessments

Sometimes vision can be a problem even if a child's eyes are working together perfectly. This is due to the brain having difficulty processing what the eyes are seeing.

There are ways to identify areas of deficiencies in the brain’s understanding of visual information with a comprehensive set of assessments which can then be followed through with perceptual training.

Vision Therapy

We offer exercises and activities to help with strabismus, amblyopia and visual processing. This allows children's eyes to work better together and assists their brains to better process the information it is seeing.
