Your eyesight is critical to living the life you want to live, and this is no less true for small children. In fact, eye conditions can be even more serious in children because they have not yet learned many important skills they will need later in life, and loss of vision or degraded vision can make it difficult for them to do so. Whether or not your child is showing symptoms, it’s critical you get them a vision plan today.
We’ve been helping patients see and live better since 1985, and in that time we’ve discovered that everyone we see is unique, and no two sets of eyes are alike. That’s why every patient who walks through our door will receive the highest quality treatment we can offer. We base each treatment plan on the patient’s individual needs – in fact, we base it on their individual eyes!
We take this same approach with little ones. We offer pediatric eye exams that help get to the root of your child’s vision trouble, then make a treatment plan for life, adjusting as we go. Our goal is to see each child all the way through school with the best possible vision, then send them out into the world knowing exactly how to care for themselves and their eyes.
While children can technically suffer from any disease an adult can, they’re much less likely to have a disease and more likely to struggle with disorders such as:
These conditions can be treated, and the earlier the better. However, it’s not always obvious whether or not a child has one of these conditions, which is why it’s important to take children to the doctor for eye checkups regularly.
Children who have undiagnosed vision trouble tend to do poorly in school. They may show disinterest in schoolwork, have trouble reading, exhibit dread about the prospect of school, goof off or generally not take education seriously. While this might make it seem like they “don’t care,” we often find the trouble is they can’t see – and so they are bored or intimidated by school, or they feel like something is wrong with them. Proper eyewear or eye care may be all that’s needed.
