11-18: Understanding the sensitive nature of visual challenges

The teenage years can be full of challenges. Visual development is complete and established, but unattended eye problems can have significant and potentially lasting damaging effects on your teenager's vision, learning, self-esteem and social interactions.

 We are committed to listening attentively to your teenager’s concerns as well as yours. We are always mindful of individual needs and will make every effort to arrive at a solution that is acceptable to all concerned while providing clear information and kind support.



Types of visual and eye challenges

  • Blurred or reduced vision
  • Ocular misalignment
  • Double vision

If you or your teenager have any concerns it is always best to have them addressed early. While most conditions causing the above symptoms can be easily treated, serious ocular and neurological disease may present in similar ways.
