Opthometry Study

Archives > News Archive > 2015-2016

A local Optometrist, Lynda McGivney-Nolan, based in Bray is conducting on Irish school children aged between 8 and 13. She wants to study the connection between how a child progresses in reading and how the eye works.

The benefit to the child who is chosen to be part of the study is they get a free, very comprehensive, 60 minute eye check at her eye clinic in Bray. Each parent will be given a report of the results. All of this study conforms to the highest ethical standards and is properly supervised by the University of Ulster.

She is interested in two groups of children;

  • Group 1 are typically developing children who do not attend learning support or have any diagnosed special need. (see info sheet on typical children + parental information)
  • Group 2 are children who have already have an occupational therapy report and who also attend learning support in school. (info sheet on OT children + parental information)

If you wish your son or any of your children, girls also (8-13yrs) to be part of this study and benefit from the free eye examination please read the attached information. Please be advised that she may not be able to accommodate all children who apply to be part of the study.
