Our aim for each of our patients is to achieve Sophisticated Binocular Vision.
For sophisticated binocular vision we need accurate Fine Motor control ofeye movements, bilaterality & timing.
These Fine Motor Skills are built on Gross Motor Skills.
Our Gross Motor skills require Postural Reflexes.
Postural Reflexes are dependant on motor organisation, orientation and self control.
We begin learning our motor organisation, orientation and self control when we are under one year old and start our basic movements > crawling > walking.
Our basic movement development starts from reflex actions which develop in utero.
The pyramid chart above has been written to help you understand a little more about the steps in normal visual development. If you, or a member of your family, have visual symptoms not corrected simply by glasses then a full diagnostic & functional visual assessment is highly recommended with Peter our Senior Optometrist, an accredited Behavioural Optometrist & Vision Therapist.
