Paediatric Eye Exams

Eye examinations are recommended for children from age 4 onwards. Family history can be a good indicator of potential eye problems the child may be at risk of developing.


Studies have shown that 1 in 4 children have an eye problem in Australia.


Eye examinations will determine if your child needs to have corrected vision with glasses, contact lenses or orthokeratology. Furthermore, every comprehensive children’s eye exam will also determine whether a child has any of the following conditions:


  • Strabismus (an eye deviation that is inward, outward, upwards or downwards)

  • An amblyopic eye (A lazy eye)

  • Accommodative insufficiency

  • Accommodative excess

  • Convergence insufficiency

  • Convergence excess

  • Divergence insufficiency

  • Divergence excess

  • Fourth nerve palsies

  • Dry eyes

  • Allergic conjunctivitis

  • Blepharitis

  • Herpetic keratitis

  • Ocular hypertension

  • Vitreous floaters

  • Congential retinal or optic nerve abnormalities

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

  • Retinal lesions or infections

  • Anterior Uveitis

  • Pituitary tumours

  • Other Cranial Tumours affecting the Sixth Nerve, Fourth Nerve or Third Nerve


Our optometrist eye doctors are thorough and dedicated to providing the best care possible for our children’s eyes. We recognise that our children utilise their vision as their dominant sense for learning and therefore take the time to ensure that your child has the best eye care available.
