For many, bad vision starts at childhood. Often it runs in the family or can degrade over time as your child gets older. And with nothing to compare to, it can be hard for your child to realise they even have difficulty seeing! At Brazionis, we’re a family-friendly optometry practice that caters for your whole family. As a specialised children’s optometrist We work with children as young as 1 year old, identifying whether your child needs eye correction and helping them to live and grow to the fullest. In the early years, children’s eyes change rapidly. If your child hasn’t had an eye test or is due for one, we offer bulk billed comprehensive eye tests.
Treat Eye Issues Early
According to studies, 60% of children who have trouble learning are found to have had undiagnosed vision problems. These issues, if left undiagnosed, can cause major problems in the future. Children’s eyes are sensitive, and it’s often hard to tell if there’s a vision problem or not. We have two in-house optometrists for exactly this reason, specifically trained to test young eyes.
With a comprehensive eye test, we can understand exactly what’s happening with your child’s eyes, reducing the chance of getting incorrect test results to almost zero. We use unique methods to test even young children, with games, activities and specialised tools all being used to get the most accurate reading.
Does Your Child Have Vision Problems?
There are a range of signs that could be indicators of vision problems. If your child shows signs of any of the following, our specialist children’s optometrist can assess and diagnose the problem to provide the best solution.
- Increased blinking
- Difficulty concentrating when reading
- Covering or closing one eye
- Frequent headaches
- Having to get close to see things
- Problems learning to read
Glasses Designed for Life
Kids live active lives. That’s a fact. From reading to sports, computer games and hanging out with friends, your child needs glasses that can keep up with them. At Brazionis we tailor your lenses to suit your child, providing glasses that will continue to provide children clear vision throughout their day. We even have options for blue light lenses, to keep young eyes protected from excessive screen use.
