Vision problems may go unnoticed by parents and teachers. Learning and attention challenges are common when visual development is delayed. Correcting these problems promotes comfort, confidence and ability to learn. Children don’t need to know the alphabet or even speak to have an eye exam. We recommend that all children have routine eye exams at 6 months of age and yearly thereafter.
We love working with you, and we will make your experience as pleasant and fun as possible. Please fill out our Intake form so we are ready for your first visit.
Here are answers to frequently asked questions:
While some vision traits -both good and bad- can run in the family, there is no way to ensure efficient, healthy vision without a comprehensive eye exam. Children with vision problems are not usually aware of it, as they have nothing to compare to. It’s important to have your child’s eyes examined by an eye doctor.
By 6 months of age, your baby’s eyes should be working together to form 3 dimensional vision in their brain. Normal child development depends on the vision to guide and lead. Vision problems are usually not noticed by parents, but eye movement skills, eye alignment, refractive error and eye health are all easy to assess by an optometrist. We recommend children be seen by 6 months and yearly thereafter. If your baby is at high risk for vision problems or if you’ve noticed something unusual they should be seen as early as possible.
No. Vision can be tested without verbal responses. Kids don’t need to know letters, numbers, or even speak to have a comprehensive eye examination. They don’t even have to sit for long. Although the tests used in an infant or toddler eye exam are different than for adults, the same information can be obtained. There is no such thing as being too young to have your eyes checked.
Avoidance of bookwork and below-expected school performance often indicate a vision problem. Reading, writing, and computer work are much more taxing on the eyes than people realize. Vision problems often develop as adaptations to the extra effort. Help ensure your child’s success by keeping their face at least 30 cm from books or computer monitors. Encourage vision breaks by focusing far away from every 15 minutes or so. Vision therapy is often used to resolve difficulties with the underlying vision skills needed for reading, writing, and math performance.
