Many people think that optometrists just prescribe glasses, right? Wrong! Glasses can be an important part of your vision care, but there are other treatments that available to assist in your vision care needs. Our treatments are individually prescribed after a thorough assessment of your needs, and a discussion on the pro’s and con’s of each option. Other treatments in include Ortho-K/Orthokeratology (increased freedom from glasses or contacts); Precision Tinted Lenses; Contact Lenses; Stress Relieving Lenses & Ergonomic advice. Serving the Gold Coast/Tweed Region, we not only help correct sight, we assist in all areas of vision.
What is Behavioural Optometry?
Our optometrists Paul Graham, Meredith Graham & Alice Forsyth practice optometry with a Behavioural Vision Care philosophy. They understand that good visual performance is not just about clear distance sight. They have extensively studied the effects of stress on vision, and the impact that poor vision has on learning, reduced concentration and performance for both children and adults.
The team at Harmony Vision Care combines many years of clinical experience and research to deliver office based vision training. Our emphasis is that Vision Training is much more than just “eye exercises”. Instead, it is a progressive method of retraining how the brain, eyes and body work together.
OrthoK (see without glasses or contacts)
Clear sight during the day by wearing lenses ONLY at NIGHT. Ortho-K is a unique contact lens treatment that help eligible patients to reduce dependence on glasses and avoid daytime contact lens dryness. We have extensive experience in this non surgical technology.
Have you or your child been recommended Irlen coloured lenses for reading? Struggling with reading? Has someone suggested dyslexia? This area is a minefield for conflicting opinions. While people with dyslexia like anyone else can suffer with vision problems. What is clear is that dyslexia and Irlen Syndrome are not the same thing. And unfortunately many people don’t realise is that simple vision problems give the same symptoms that are confused for Irlen Syndrome. Harmony Vision Care has the expertise to identify whether vision problems might be interfering with visual comfort while reading, and the most appropriate approach for each individual.
