Jane has studied behavioural optometry and has developed a more holistic approach to eye care which complements more conventional optometric practice.
Behavioural optometry is a specialisation within Optometry that focuses attention on the quality of visual skills rather than just the ability to “see”.
It investigates how the brain, eyes and body work together as a team and although we are born with a pair of eyes, the process of understanding what we see is a learned skill.
Behavioural optometrists use lenses, filters and exercises to help develop a more efficient and complete visual processing, allowing improved performance and co-ordination at school, in sports and also in the workplace.
Conditions which can be helped include:
Poor hand writing
Lack of concentration / Reading difficulties
Lazy Eyes or Squints
Headaches, double vision / Poor co-ordination
