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.
We can assess how their eyes work together for better vision and learning.
Vision begins with the eyes, but also needs to be processed by the brain.
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
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.
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.
