New Child Info

By filling out the pdf questionnaire below 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.
Please download or print this questionnaire to fill out in your own time & then bring along on the day of the appointment or scan & email or fax (07 5442 5740) to us beforehand.

Don't forget to also organise the teacher's questionnaire if your child is in primary school or for the older child whose teacher has recommended a visual assessment.
