Behavioural Optometrist

Behavioural Optometry Treats your Vision Holistically

Vision anomalies and disorders are commonly associated with biological causes, such as changes to the health and structure of the eyeball. However, they can also be caused and exacerbated by behavioural habits and conditions. At Microprism Optics, our team includes a qualified behavioural optometrist who can assess patients of all ages who have vision problems requiring correction. We apply quantum physics (biological application) to optometry and deliver solutions that are tailored to your needs. The opticians at our South Yarra clinic are well qualified to assist in frame, lens selection and optical appliance dispensing with special Integrative activities that complement the optometric consultation and prescribing.

Taking a Look at Behavioural Optometry

While the foundation of behavioural optometry is built on traditional optometry, the emphasis is more on functional dynamics:

  • The focusing, aiming and movement of the eyes
  • Processing of visual information
  • How vision can affect movement, balance and everyday tasks

A behavioural optometry assessment looks at more than just eye function, providing a more holistic snapshot of all elements of vision that can also impact on other areas of a person’s life, as well as conditions that can impact on vision. If any problems are identified, a behavioural optometrist may recommend ophthalmic aids and/or behaviourally directed vision exercises to rectify them.

How We Can Help

Whether you need a behavioural optometrist for children or adults, Microprism Optics can provide solutions to change and alleviate your specific conditions.

People are often surprised when our behavioural optometrist tells them that dyslexia, autism and concentration disorders like ADHD can be connected to vision. When you think about it, however, these conditions all affect the way people process the world around them, and much of that is filtered through the eyes. Our optometrist aims to address this and improve vision accordingly.

Our specialist can conduct a behavioural eye test and behavioural optometry assessment in order to formulate a treatment plan that may include behavioural optometry exercises. We can also provide glasses with lenses and prisms that are tailored to your specific needs. These can alter spatial context and perspective, allowing wearers to process the world with more focus and clarity.

Our treatments adhere to the latest developments surrounding neuroplasticity and muscle memory, facilitating a greater ease of visual consciousness.
