Children’s eye tests

All children should have their eyes tested before they start school to detect and address eye health or vision problems.

Early detection is important for children’s eye health and vision, particularly during the first 6-8 years of development. As children get older, any undetected eye health issues are harder to treat and can impact learning and development.

Using specific technology and equipment designed for children’s eye tests, we test for:

  • Colour vision
  • Depth deception
  • Convergence insufficiency – when the eye muscles don’t turn in easily, causing reading difficulties and eye strain.

We also perform eye tests for young babies or toddlers if parents are concerned about vision or eye problems.
