Behavioural Optometry

Behavioural optometry is a type of complementary and alternative medicine which encompasses a number of unorthodox ideas and practices related to visual processes. In general, behavioral optometrists attempt to improve vision and well-being using eye exercises and lenses in ways which depart from conventional optometry. Therapists aim to treat a broad range of conditions including visual impairments, neurological disorders and learning disabilities. Many of the ideas associated with behavioural optometry lack a clear scientific basis. Research, where it exists, is of low quality.

  • Prisms for near binocular disorders and for producing postural change
  • Behavioural approaches to the treatment of strabismus and amblyopia
  • Sports vision therapy
  • Use of low-plus lenses at near to slow the progression of myopia
