Your Child’s Eye Health & Vision Depends on Eye Exams

Children rely on their vision to learn, both inside and outside the classroom, so an undiagnosed or untreated vision problem could have an adverse effect on their development.

Your child’s overall well being depends on a variety of factors, including regular eye exams. Annual eye exams give your child’s optometrist the chance to detect and track small changes in their eye health or vision which may indicate a problem is forming.

Childhood Vision Problems

Children with vision problems don’t always realize something is wrong, and even if they do, young children, in particular, may not articulate this effectively. That’s why parents and caregivers need to keep an eye on their children and look for signs of trouble.

Untreated vision problems can hamper your child’s ability to learn, so it’s vital that any issues be diagnosed and addressed promptly.

Your child may be experiencing vision problems if they:

  • Complain of double vision
  • Complain of frequent headaches
  • Blink excessively
  • Squint frequently
  • Frequently tilt their head to one side or cover one eye
  • Rub their eyes frequently
  • Avoid detailed tasks
  • Avoid reading or other activities that depend on close vision
  • Often lose their place while reading
  • Need to use their finger to guide them while reading
  • Have trouble staying on task
  • Have a misaligned eye

If you suspect that your child may be suffering from vision problems, make an appointment with our optometrists as soon as possible.

Children’s Eye Exam Schedule

The American Optometric Association guidelines recommend that children undergo their first comprehensive eye exam between the ages of 6 and 12 months old. They should have their eyes examined for a second time between the ages of 3 and 5 years old, then visit our optometrists at least once more before they begin kindergarten.

Your child should undergo annual comprehensive eye exams once they begin school. However, depending on your child’s vision and eye health needs, we may suggest they have their eyes examined more frequently.

For more information about children’s eye health and eye exams, please speak to one of our team members during their next appointment.
