Regular children’s eye tests are the best way to detect and address vision problems early, ensuring proper development and overall well-being for your child. Identification and treatment can prevent long-term issues, support visual comfort, and promote optimal growth and learning during your child’s formative years.
Why Choose the Eye Lab for Children’s Eye Testing?
It’s important to have your child’s eyes tested regularly. The Eye Lab offers a full range of optometry services at its boutique clinic, conveniently located in Melbourne’s inner west. To set your child up for success, it’s recommended their eyes are tested before beginning school, then every two years — or more frequently if you notice a change in their vision.
The Eye Lab offers children’s eye testing to ensure your child’s vision is healthy and not hindering their ability to learn and function. Our specialist optometrists perform two assessments for an understanding of overall eye health:
- A binocular assessment for children up to age six measures how well the visual neural system and eyes work together.
- While a cycloplegic refraction assessment, using eye drops to dilate the pupils, measures refractive error to aid in the prescription of glasses.
