Our optometrists Yang Wang & Roland Mak are experienced with testing the vision of children and encourage a comprehensive eye exam for kids at any age if you hold any concerns for their eyesight.
We have age-appropriate visual acuity charts (shapes, numbers, and letters), children-friendly equipment and can provide you with comprehensive advice to ensure you have peace of mind that your child’s visual issues are thoroughly addressed.
Our children’s vision testing procedure is tailored to the problems and needs of each child, but may include the following:
Depending on the type of problem a child may suffer from, we offer a selection of different management options:
Slowing the progression of myopia with specialty glasses, eyedrops, and/or contact lenses.
In-office & home visual therapy offered for eye tracking & binocular vision issues, such as convergence insufficiency.
We may advise on steps to ensure certain eye conditions don’t worsen with time. For example eye rubbing-induced astigmatism.
We provide eyesight reports to teachers to ensure they are aware of the requirements of children with visual problems, such as the need to be seated in front of class.
Expertise with all forms of soft and rigid contact lens fitting for complex ocular conditions in children.
Children with learning and behavioural disorders are at a higher risk of also having vision problems – for example, patients with attention-deficit disorder (ADD/ADHD) are 3x more likely to have convergence insufficiency than the general population.
Therefore a full eye exam is highly recommended to rule out any visual problems that can worsen the symptoms that these children suffer.
