Paediatric Optometry

Whether your child is suffering from colour blindness, strabismus, poor vision, dyslexia or learning difficulties, our prism lenses are designed to build up strength in the muscles around their eyes and cultivate neuroplasticity in order to help rehabilitate their vision. We have seen the class dunce go to the top of the class. Those not able to read, be able read, in just one session with us.

We use advanced technology to help restore alignment and healthy cognition when it comes to eyesight.

We also offer Vivid Vision, a virtual environment that can improve performance by:

  1. Tracking visual acuity
  2. Assessing eye movement and focus
  3. Helping you develop peripheral awareness
  4. Developing depth perception and coordination

We’ve also got a wide range of fun and funky frames for kids so that they don’t feel self-conscious if they do end up wearing glasses. Our prism glasses are made to exercise your child’s eyes rather than make them lazy like traditional eye glasses and can be customised to block out the blue light if your child is often in front of a screen.

100-Day Perfect
Prescription Guarantee

Quantum Photo-Somatics is a dynamic process, activating the system to begin rearranging and realigning itself to a state of ease. On average, follow-up consultations resulting in a change of prescription occur on a 6-monthly basis. In most cases this is a decrease of prescription, allowing the system to continue moving forward. Where a prescription has increased, it is an indicator that more support is required at that moment, and will likely come down when conditions change. 

However, if your new lenses aren’t delivering the comfort or improvement you expected within 100 days, we’re here for you. We’ll re-evaluate your eyes and make any adjustments that are required.

In the majority of cases, we find that a brief 15-30 minute consult suffices to determine the issue, and is usually a matter of further integration, or a slight adjustment to the prescription. These consultations are available free of charge within the 100 day warranty period. 

  • Progress and Support: In some cases, changes occuring as a result of the process may temporarily create some discomfort. Different stages of progress may require varying levels of support in order to reach the desired outcome. 
  • Consultation Fees: A consultation fee will be charged for consultations extending to an hour or more, given the extensive work involved.
  • Discounted Lenses: If the outcome of your consultation is a significant decrease of prescription, new lenses will be prescribed at a 30% discount. Lens remakes under warranty are not honored for obvious improvements.
  • Warranty Lens Remakes: If there’s another significant shift within the next 100 days, lens remakes we will remake your lenses free of charge. 

As the outcomes of this work are highly individual, the application of this policy will have variability depending on the case, and is continually being adapted as the modality itself evolves.

Considerations when Choosing a Children’s Optometrist in Melbourne:

It’s important to choose a professional children’s optometrist in Melbourne with experience dealing with a range of common eye health conditions. Everyone’s vision is different: subsequently, it’s important that any optometrist for childrenshould be these three things:

1. Offer a child-friendly environment

Many children find getting vision tests stressful – which can then be a problem when discerning the eye condition – but we’ll do anything possible to make the environment comfortable and relaxing. We also have specialist eye testing equipment, ensuring that your children’s eyes are examined carefully and appropriately.

2. Specialist experience in paediatric optometry

Of course, having specialist equipment doesn’t mean anything unless the staff are trained to use it properly. A good paediatric optometrist will be able to quickly identify common issues and prescribe appropriate treatment. This is essential: it can sometimes be difficult to diagnose vision-related problems at a young age.

Here at Microprism Vision, we have a superb track record for prescribing high-quality paediatric care. Our products perfectly combine short-term comfort with long-term health. For example, our children’s glasses train the eyes for long-term healthy perception and coordination, whilst also in the short-term blocking out blue light (a type of light emitted by electronic devices).

3. Commitment to your child’s long-term wellbeing

It’s important to regularly visit an optometrist throughout childhood. Consequently, on the optometrist’s end, it’s important that they’re committed to your child’s long-term ocular health, providing continuity of care and addressing concerns quickly.

At Microprism Vision, we focus on the wellbeing of each of our customers, regardless of their age. Our optometrists in Melbourne are all trained to the highest possible standard, ensuring that each visit to our clinic is rewarding.

Conditions Paediatric Optometrist Can Treat

Vision anomalies and disorders are commonly associated with biological causes, such as changes to the health and structure of the eyeball. However, they can also be caused and exacerbated by behavioural habits and conditions

At Microprism Vision, our experienced optometrist in Melbourne can assess patients in Melbourne of all ages who have vision problems requiring correction. We apply quantum physics (biological application) to optometry and deliver solutions that are tailored to your needs. The opticians at our Docklands clinic are well qualified to assist in frame, lens selection and optical appliance dispensing with special Integrative activities that complement the optometric consultation and prescribing.

This type of optometry can treat various children’s eye conditions, including:

  • Lazy eyes
  • Eye motor control issues
  • Developmental delays
  • Reading difficulties
  • Acquired brain injuries

How Optometry Can Help Children

Children who struggle with learning to read and write or concentrate at school might have a problem with their vision. Our paediatric optometrist in Melbourne can assist children by assessing their visual capabilities and planning a vision therapy program that is suited to their individual requirements and age group.

During therapy, we take note of their visual skills, including eye tracking, eye teaming, eye focusing and visual perception. We will help your child to develop their vision skills, allowing them to reach their full potential at school and with extracurricular activities.

Let Our Paediatric Optometrist Improve Your Child’s Eyesight

Watching a child develop is one of the greatest pleasures in life. From their first interactions with colours and shapes to the time they bring home that treasured work of art from school, there is an enormous amount of inspiration to be drawn from how they see the world. But, just like all aspects of child development, their vision can sometimes suffer from ill health, something which can be a source of anxiety for parents.

Every paediatric optometrist should be making the reduction of this anxiety their primary goal. We need to be making parents comfortable with the fact that kids’ eyes are always developing and that even if sometimes that development goes astray, there are always ways to rectify it. Our job is to identify the cause of the problem, not merely to temporarily correct your child’s vision. And finally, above all, a kids’ optometrist should be encouraging your child towards healthy habits to keep their eyes in good condition.

Supporting Your Child’s Ocular Health

Our founder, Dr Michael Christian, has been a practising optometrist in Melbourne for more than two decades and has developed techniques to improve your child’s vision in a way that puts them at their ease. Whether your child is suffering from colour blindness, strabismus, or poor vision, our prism lenses are designed to build up strength in the muscles around their eyes and cultivate neuroplasticity in order to help rehabilitate their vision.

One of the features of our service that marks us out over other paediatric optometry providers in the area is our ability to use advanced technology to help restore our alignment and healthy cognition when it comes to eyesight. We call it Vivid Vision, a virtual environment that can improve performance by:

  • Tracking visual acuity
  • Assessing eye movement and focus
  • Helping you develop peripheral awareness
  • Developing depth perception and coordination.

We’ve also got a wide range of fun and funky frames for kids so that they don’t feel self-conscious if they do end up wearing glasses. Our prism glasses are made to exercise your child’s eyes rather than make them lazy like traditional eyewear in Melbourne and can be customised to block out the blue light if your child is often in front of a screen.

Best Children Optometrist in Melbourne

Like any parent, you want to give your child the best possible opportunities in life. You want them to succeed, and you don’t want anything getting in their way that you can prevent. That’s why it’s crucial to have their eyesight regularly checked; kids usually have an easier time acclimating to glasses than adults do when eyesight issues develop later in life.

You also want to address any eyesight issues early, while they’re still relatively easy to treat. Delaying a check-up for too long can often cause issues for your child later on. Luckily, when you choose us as your optometrist for children, you’re placing their care in good hands. Our clinic is the first in the world to offer Quantum Photo Somatics, or QPS; QPS involves treating your eyesight by focusing on its connection to the rest of the body, thereby improving mental and physical health at the same time. By treating your eyes, we’re indirectly improving your overall health as well. Those connections between the eyes and the larger physiology have always been there; it’s just a matter of conducting treatment through them.

What are the Benefits of Choosing us as Your Children’s Optometrist?

So, what benefits can your child expect to see from our treatments? That varies slightly according to the issue they’re experiencing, but here are some general ones:

  • Your little one will most likely start doing better in school. Eyesight issues are famously a cause for kids to lose focus or struggle to read things in class; when they’re resolved, kids often feel more motivated to participate and improve.
  • By undergoing QPS treatment early in life, your child will build positive habits to use throughout life. For instance, with early vision treatment, your child can improve their reflexes and reaction times, which can set them up for an excellent path in athletics later on.
  • With the other benefits in effect, your child will feel enabled; they’ll feel more able to accomplish things they used to struggle with because of their vision. That will result in more confidence.

What is the difference between what you do and others?

We take a unique approach to vision and eye health by holistically and dynamically assessing vision, mind and body as a complete unit, working on conscious and subconscious levels.

Our unique methodology, Quantum (Energy) Photo (Light) Somatics (Body Movement) (QPS) has been developed by Dr Michael Christian. QPS supports Optometry and is an endorsed and accredited field with the IICT (International Institute of Complementary Therapies)

It engages a real time integrative feedback system of many factors, making adjustments, counter checks and further adjustments through the process.

Light uniquely and appropriately refracted through lens and prism combinations support and change factors such as breath, posture, balance, muscles, energy, nerves, emotions, movement and body functions, which in turn aims to positively affect the eyes and vision.

Once we understand the wearers profile, we prescribe balanced, highly customised, activating lens and prism prescriptions. These lenses aim to change the way the wearers eye muscles work while supporting how the brain processes visual information.

Just as you work out your body with weights and movement, the glasses we prescribe act as a personal trainer for your eyes that are designed to work just by wearing them, without the hassle of boring and limited time-consuming eye exercises.

The lenses aim to also encourage improvement of health conditions that are linked to, being caused by or exacerbated by poor vision, while aiming to avoid the usual deterioration of vision commonly experienced by long-term glasses wearers. The eyes affect the mind and body, and the mind and body affect the eyes.Both need optimal support. These links and relationships are thoroughly investigated in depth for each person.

How do lenses and prism encourage positive visual change or improvement?

Just as good air, food and water provides integral fuel for the body, good light, presented correctly, provides integral fuel for vision and mind.

The function of your eyes has a flow on effect to the rest of your mind and body. Just as changing any nerve or muscle group in the body does.

Microprism integrative prescriptions are derived by focusing two eyes together in specific binocular refractive patterns for clear perspective and detail discrimination. In Microprism progressive lens manufacturing, the prism is located in unique non-traditional active locations to ensure clear, open, comfortable and dynamic vision. Microprism directional prisms (up, down, in and out summations) are located differently and affect eye muscles, changing eye shape and location and the perception of objects within a space. The internal shift on eye muscles via the incoming prism re-directed light, effects and brings into alignment and balance, how near, distance and perspective are observed. This ideal state of alignment brings ease to the optical, motor and sensory system and has a positive flow on effect to the rest of the body. Light feeds the whole biophotonic transduction system of the body.
