My eldest DS did at his 4 year health check. We took him to an optometrist and she said that it seemed like he was short-sighted, but she didn't want to do anything for a year or two just in case it rectified itself. We just recently went for a check-up and it's all good now.

I don't know if DS failed as such, but it was recommended that his eyes be tested again in 12 months. We went to the optometrist who said he was long sighted and needed reading glasses.

My dd failed her eye test. It was a Thursday. The following Monday she had an optometrist appointment, and was then referred to a behavioural optometrist. Luckily we got an appointment on the Wednesday. She has astigmatism and is long sighted. We should get her glasses in the next couple of days. She has a check up again in three months.
Is there any sight problems in your family? Dd has exact same problem as DH.
On the form from the check up it had 6/15, which basically means something someone with normal vision sees at 15 metres clearly, dd has to be 6 metres.

I've got a gp appointment Thursday for a referral and he's getting his needles then as well.
I might also take him to optometrist and see what they say.

I walked past optometrist last week and 4yo DD asked what "the glasses shop" did. We had time so popped in to explain. They had a cancelled appt so took her in for an exam (all under Medicare). After 45mins of testing, said she is long sighted but to leave it for now and test again before she goes to school next year. Said their eyes change quite a lot until about 8yo.
It was a much more thorough examination than the one at her blue book check months earlier.
Hope all goes well at your appt
