Optometry at Cooroy
Our optometrists have a more holistic approach in the assessment and treatment of vision with an enhanced appreciation of visual efficiency and potential visual performance.
Behavioural optometry is an expanded area of optometric practice and a philosophy of eyecare which aims to incorporate the physical, neurological and developmental aspects of vision and applies to adults as well as children. We believe that the way you interpret what you see doesn’t depend solely on how clear your eyesight is. We consider your visual demands to ensure that your vision is working easily and is comfortable for work, study and play.
