Children’s Vision Testing

It is vital children have their eyes tested early to screen for abnormalities. If there are problems like strabismus, where eyes are misaligned, or amblyopia, commonly called a lazy eye, the earlier treatment starts the better the outcome. Poor eyesight will also reduce a child’s ability to learn at home as well as at school. As well as testing for these conditions optometrists test for near and far vision; if needed, corrective glasses will make a great difference to a child’s ability to see and interact with the world. Children are also tested for colour blindness.

Parents or children with a Community Services Card and children with a High Use Health Card can receive financial assistance with eye examinations and with spectacles under the government Enable Spectale Subsidy.  This funding is up to $287.50-$338.60 per child. Click on the link for more details:
