Hi,

Do you know if my son can see a Behavioural optometrist through NHS?
If yes, please could you recommend one in West Sussex? If not, please could you recommend a private one?

Also, please tell me any success story with vision therapy and squint and lazy eyes.

Thanks.

OK, I can't be much help as I have paid privately for a BO, and it wasn't for squint/lazy eye.

DS was, however, treated on the NHS at our local hospital for 6 years (two years of patches, and then exercises) for his lazy eye.

I may be wrong but I think vision therapy through a BO is only available in Essex. My DS had serious tracking problems that were fully fixed by VT. we went private, but it was worth it IMHO.
Look at BABO website for a list of BOs. I have heard some aren't as good as others, so see if you can get a recommendation from someone. We were in north bucks and our BO was excellent.

rrbrigi - did you find and see a BO in the end? I am looking at either Mrs Burns (Worthing) or Mr Leigh (Petersfield)? Would be interested in feeedback. Thanks.
