Children’s Vision Clinic:

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.

Children's Vision Testing

Vision Therapy

In-office & home visual therapy offered for eye tracking & binocular vision issues, such as convergence insufficiency.

Preventative Advice

We may advise on steps to ensure certain eye conditions don’t worsen with time. For example eye rubbing-induced astigmatism.

Report to Teachers

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.

Specialty Contact Lenses

Expertise with all forms of soft and rigid contact lens fitting for complex ocular conditions in children.

Note on children with ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Learning/Behavioural Disorders

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.
