Over several decades, behavioural optometrists have developed and used vision therapy – in combination with appropriate, carefully selected lenses to:
- Prevent vision and eye problems from developing
- Develop the visual skills needed to achieve more effectively at school, work or play
- Enhance functioning on tasks that demand sustained visual effort
- Remediate or compensate for vision and eye problems, which have already developed
Through vision therapy, people are able to develop more efficient visual performance.
Antony Austin are specialist Behavioural Optometrists, with an interest in how vision affects human performance.
This includes developmental, functional and neuro-optometry.
Behavioural Optometrists will use a range of treatments to help their patients learn and function more efficiently. This can be applicable for any age group, not just children.
Not all optometrists practice behavioural optometry.
