By filling out this form you will be giving us information to best assess your child's vision.
Your child's visual examination will be more than just a traditional eyesight test. As well as eyesight & eye health, we investigate how efficiently your child's eyes team together, how your child takes in information & how well they understand what they see. We believe optimal school performance required the development of optimal visual skills.
- When attending the consultation please bring any spectacles your child has worn.
- Bring any additional information or reports from other professionals that would help our understanding of yuour child.
- In order to avoid distraction for your child, yourself and the optometrist during the examination, it would be appreciated if you could avoid bringing to the appointment siblings or other children who cannot be left alone in the waiting room or be quiet in the consulting room.
