Behavioural optometry looks at your eye health holistically. A behavioural optometrist will consider your vision not just in terms of your prescription, but in relation to your visual perceptual and visual processing skills. This can help to improve eye focusing, eye tracking, and similar abilities, which can often impact on your reading, writing, and cognitive skills. For this reason, behavioural optometry is often recommended for school-aged children.
Located a short drive away in Williamstown, Fitzgerald Optometry is the local behavioural optometrist for Altona and the surrounding suburbs. To discuss the benefits and services involved in behavioural optometry, contact us today for an appointment.

In a thorough examination, our practitioners will gain a detailed picture of your overall eye health, allowing them to properly prescribe an effective treatment plan that is tailored to you. These tests also help to pinpoint any possible degenerative conditions or eye diseases that may be forming, as well as informing you of any potential risks that may develop in the future.

Options for treating and managing myopia include atropine eye drops, certain prescription medications, and orthokeratology (also known as Ortho-K or overnight contact lenses). To discuss the best course of action for myopia control, Altona residents are encouraged to contact our team for a consultation.
