Can your child see clearly?
Your child’s eyesight changes as they grow and the detection of early vision problems can prevent future problems from occurring. Clear vision can also assist in their learning and development.

Signs of a vision problem
Children often think that what they’re seeing is normal and adapt to this vision, even though they’re not seeing clearly.
There are a few signs to look out for when your child has a vision problem.
If you notice your child doing any of the above, we recommended that you book them in for an eye test with your Health Partners optometrist.
Kids’ eye tests
Approximately 30 minutes long, they include a series of simple tests designed to check your child’s eye health, visual acuity (how well they can see), binocular vision (how well the eyes work together) and colour vision.
