As the school years progress, eye co-ordination, focussing and accurate eye tracking normally develops quickly, however for many children, these skills may not be automatic or efficient. As the complexity of learning becomes more involved, small inefficiencies in the visual system can slow down the learning process.
dean samarkovski OPTOMETRIST provides customised vision therapy for many binocular vision disorders and to all age groups. We have had success treating young school age children, young adults at University and computer screen based workers, right through to adults over the age of 50.
Vision therapy consists of specific eye exercises that are designed to improve eye coordination, eye focussing, and eye tracking skills. We can also provide assessment and therapy of visual processing functions. Visual processing assessments are typically done at a separate visit, when clinically deemed necessary, and are charged privately with no medicare rebate being available.
