What Parents Need to Know
Children's vision care is essential to every child's development. Experts say that over 80 percent of what a child learns in school is presented visually, so making sure your son or daughter has good vision can make a big difference in their academic performance.
Routine eye exams for children can detect any nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism your child has so it can be promptly treated with eyeglasses or contact lenses. Routine exams are also needed to make sure your child's eyes are healthy and to rule out amblyopia, strabismus and other binocular vision problems that may interfere with your child's vision development, academic performance and sports vision.
Early Intervention is Essential
Our Children's Eye Care Program is designed to educate parents on how to recognize the symptoms of eye diseases and disorders in their children between newborn and 36 months of age. This program encourages parents who think their child has a vision or eye problem to have their child's eyes examined as soon as possible.
Every child, even those without noticeable eye problems, should have a vision screening and/or eye examination before his or her fifth birthday. Good vision is essential for proper physical development and educational progress in growing children. Early detection of treatable eye disease in infancy and childhood can have far reaching implications for vision and, in some cases, for general health.
Q: Could my child have an eye disease or disorder?
A: Most children have healthy, normal eyes, but a few are born with serious eye diseases or disorders, some of which may not be obvious. In most cases, these problems can be identified - and treated - even during the first few days of life. But without early intervention, usually before the age of five, a child with an untreated eye problem may suffer from serious vision loss, or even blindness. We encourage parents who think their child has a vision or eye problem to have their child's eyes examined by our highly trained optometrists as soon as possible.
Q: What can I do if my child has an eye problem?
A: Once we examine your child's eye health we will discuss all options available to you including further treatment by our medical director Dr. Alan Berg, M.D. who can recognize disorders and ensure that proper treatment is received immediately.
Q: How do I know if my child has an eye problem?
A: Your young child might not be able to tell you if he or she has an eye problem, but parents are usually the first to recognize the signs of eye disease in their children. If you notice that your child’s eyes or actions look like those illustrated here, or if eye diseases (including thick glasses worn at an early age or vision loss in childhood) run in your family, then your child should be examined early. We also recommend bringing your child in for an eye screening to determine whether your child’s eyes need further attention.
Q: Even if I don’t think my child has an eye or vision problem, should my child have an eye evaluation?
A: Yes! Every child, even those without noticeable eye problems, should have a vision screening and/or eye examination before his or her fifth birthday. In fact we see children as young as two.
