Our Services

Behavioural Optometry

A behavioural optometrist has a special interest in vision and how it affects a child’s learning and overall development.

Vision does not only include measuring sharpness of sight, a child who sees “20/20” can still have a significant vision problem. A behavioural optometrist will also assess other visual skills such as eye tracking or the ability to aim and focus the eyes properly which is especially important for reading and using computers.

Vision also relates to visual information processing, which is how the brain interprets the visual signals it receives. Skills such as visual memory, visual analysis, gross and fine motor control, sequencing and directionality can all affect how a child interprets and processes visual information. A behavioural optometrist is able to assess whether these skills are developing normally for the child’s age and whether they are affecting their learning.

After a comprehensive behavioural optometry assessment, treatment plans include:

  • The prescription of appropriate spectacle lenses and prisms
  • Advice on visual hygiene techniques (postural habits) to prevent or reduce the possibility of eye problems occurring
  • A course of vision training
  • Referral to other health professionals

Many EyeQ Optometrists are members of the Australasian College of Behavioural Optometrists and are practicing behavioural optometrists.

Children's Vision

Did you know that one in four children have an undiagnosed eye condition, which can adversely affect a child’s development^ . Diagnosing and treating these conditions early will ensure that your child reaches their potential. Your local EyeQ Optometrist offers a full suite of children’s eye tests and work closely with families to create ongoing treatment programs. Your optometrist is also able to connect you with other health care practitioners and specialists if necessary.

We also offer a great range of fun and funky children’s eyewear, built to withstand the playground!

Contact Lenses

Many spectacle wearers spend years unaware that they are suitable for contact lenses. At EyeQ Optometrists, our qualified opticians will fit you with the most appropriate contact lenses for your prescription and lifestyle.

Contact lenses are available to correct both distance, near and multifocal prescriptions, as well as for patients with astigmatism. Your local EyeQ Optometrist will help you find the right contact lens to suit your specific needs.

Diabetic Eye Health Assessments

Approximately 1.7 million Australians are estimated to be living with diabetes . Diabetes affects vision and eye health. Every person with diabetes is at risk of diabetic retinopathy, where the tiny blood vessels in the retina at the back of the eye become damaged and begin to leak blood and other fluids. Diabetic retinopathy can seriously affect vision and in some cases may even cause blindness. So, diabetics must pay special attention to their eyecare. All diabetics are recommended to have annual assessments.

See your local EyeQ Optometrist to learn more about managing your eye health if you are living with diabetes.

Glaucoma Assessments

Glaucoma is an eye condition which is characterised by damage to the optic nerve and retina, causing progressive vision loss. Glaucoma develops gradually, without pain or any noticeable symptoms, making it difficult to diagnose until it has begun to permanently damage your vision. Right now, 50% of people with glaucoma remain undiagnosed.*

Laser Surgery Advice and Follow up

For some of us, refractive surgery can be a great option. It’s important that laser surgery is undertaken by an expert who understands your eye health history. Your EyeQ Optometrist has a great relationship with your local ophthalmologists and will make sure you get the right referral with a surgeon who suits your needs. Your EyeQ Optometrist can also provide aftercare, following your surgery.

Macular Degeneration Assessments

Macular degeneration is a condition that causes progressive damage to the macular, the light sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in Australia and will affect 1 in 7 people over the age of 50 and the incidence increases with age*. Those with early macular degeneration may have no noticeable symptoms but the disease can cause central vision loss if not treated early.

Vision Training

Vision training is a course of prescribed activities, tailored for the individual and designed to improve poorly developed vision and visual processing skills. Your EyeQ Optometrist will prescribe a vision training plan to help improve things like eye movement control, eye focusing, eye coordination and visual analysis skills. At EyeQ many of our optometrists use vision training as part of their treatment plans.

Workplace Vision Safety

In many workplaces, keeping your eyes healthy and protected requires special procedures, techniques and eyewear. All EyeQ Optometrists are qualified to assess your workplace safety needs. They will work with you to create a plan which ensures maximum protection and safety for your eyes in the workplace.
