Neurological Optometry Care

Neurological disorders and brain injury can cause a disruption between the eyes and the brain resulting in vision problems.

1 Who can benefit?

Who can benefit from a neurological optometric assessment?

Visual issues due to neurological disorders and brain injury can impact a person’s quality of life from double vision and blurriness to mobility and balance issues. Symptoms may be dramatic and immediate, or subtle and noticed over time.

Neuro-optometric care plays an important role in rehabilitation after injury and in the management of ongoing medical conditions.

We provide neurological optometric assessments for those who have experienced a brain injury, stroke, concussion, chronic migraines, eye injury, or have other neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease.

Our Leeming location has a dedicated neuro-optometry consultating room specially designed for wheelchair users.

3 How can we help you?

How can we help you?

In collaboration with other health professionals such as physiotherapists and occupational therapists, our neuro-optometric care aims to help rehabilitate and enhance day-to-day living by improving visual symptoms or difficulties. Treatment may involve a combination of methods including specialised glasses or visual aids, precision tinted lenses and other visual rehabilitation strategies.

How often should I have my eyes examined?

We generally recommend an eye test every 12 months for adults and often more frequently for children, to ensure that eye function and health has not changed. If there is a condition we are monitoring, we may recommend more frequent eye checks.
