The examination will assess focusing skills, eye teaming (the ability to use both eyes together) and eye movement control. The behavioural optometry examination
also evaluates the individual's skill in utilising the visual process to develop spatial judgements (know where things are) and process visual information (understand what you see).
If the assessment reveals areas of concern, your optometrist may recommend vision exercises. These become the building blocks to assist your child's learning.
Some examples of the vision exercises we may recommend include:
- Visual thinking and memory
- Organising space
- Eye movements
- Visual motor integration
- Attention and sequencing
