ACT Health offers eye and vision screening services for children from birth to 6 years. Our services include vision assessment, eye movement assessment and binocular vision tests.

You can access this service with a referral from your GP. You may also be referred to the service through a MACH nurse following a Kindergarten Health Check if your child has:

  • a vision of 6/9 or less in one or both eyes
  • an obvious or latent squint
  • uneven eye movements

Please make an appointment through a Community Health Centre. Please remember to bring your child’s Blue Book to your appointment, as well as their glasses and referral letter.
