Children’s Vision

Did you know that 80% of learning is visual?

  • Visual Learning
  • Non-Visual Learning

That’s what makes regular children’s eye tests so important.

How Often Should Children Have Their Eyes Examined?
An optometrist is able to determine the exact frequency a child should be having exams. However, Optometry Australia recommends the following:

  • Infants and toddlers (birth to 24 months) should undergo their first eye examination between the ages of 6 and 9 months.
  • Preschool children (2 to 5 years) should undergo at least one eye examination between the ages of 2 and 5 years.
  • School age children (6 to 19 years) should undergo an eye examination annually.

1 In 4 Kids Have Visual Problems
It is estimated that nearly 25% of school-age children develop vision problems. As with all things, preventative measures are always more effective than reactionary ones.

By beginning regular children’s eye tests early, Paul Fotkou can catch any developments and respond accordingly.

Vision Is Critical In Learning
As you can imagine, dealing with vision degradation while trying to focus on learning and growing can be highly challenging. Often, kids don’t understand how to communicate that they are experiencing vision problems.

Annual children’s eye tests will ensure that both you and your children are always prepared for, and informed about, any irregular developments in the eye.

Kids Think Our Office Is Cool
We mean it! In addition to having a modern facility and top-notch staff, kids find our optical equipment and visual technologies cool. For many kids, being able to see inside their eye or experience using one of our state of the art machines is both enjoyable and memorable.

Don’t believe us? Bring your kids and find out!


What Makes Us Better?

At Adelaide City Optometrist, we precisely measure and record eye movement, delivering objective, graphical results in the form of a detailed report. Take a look at an example of the latest technology we use in tracking children’s eye movements when reading. This makes it easy for us, patients, their families and teachers to understand the dysfunction and next steps in assisting children. The result? Improved, more effective care.

We’re Experienced With Kids
We work with families from all over the state, and that includes their kids. Adelaide City Optometrist’s experience shows in how Paul and his staff communicate with your child, interact with them, and keep them engaged during the eye exam.

We try to keep things fun as much as possible!
