Did you know that 80% of a child’s learning is through their eyes?

Vision is vital for the development and progression of a child. With our team of paediatric optometrists, we can make sure your child gets the best head start in life.

Thanks to our technologically-advanced clinics, we can test each of the 17 different visual skills a child needs to perform at their best. Whether you think your child may have Myopia (shortsightedness), or might be dyslexic, we can offer the advice and support you need.

An undiagnosed visual impairment can have a huge impact in life.

Often if a child struggles to grasp the basics in reading and writing, this can affect not just their ability to learn, but also self esteem, behaviour and life choices. That’s why, at OCULA, every child’s assessment is done by a registered Behavioural Optometrist who is also a binocular vision specialist, so they can look for any vision problems as well as learning difficulties or disabilities. We do fun and non-invasive assessments that last 60 minutes long and include an Irlens screening.

It can be overwhelming if your child has a visual or learning impairment. At OCULA, we’re with you every step of the way, from assessment, diagnosis and treatment. We have a network of educational psychologists, doctors, health care professionals, speech language therapists and occupational therapists who are on hand to help. We take a multidisciplinary approach and work together to build a management plan tailor-made for your child’s health.
