New Child Info

By filling out the online questionnaire below you will be giving us information to best assess your child's vision.  
Your child's visual examination will be more than just a traditional eyesight test. As well as eyesight & eye health, we investigate how efficiently your child's eyes team together, how your child takes in information & how well they understand what they see. We believe optimal school performance required the development of optimal visual skills.
If you would rather fill out a paper version of our questionnaire please go to this page and download a pdf version.
