Vision For The Future
Vision impairments in children might go unnoticed because kids lack a frame of reference for what is normal. They might not complain about their vision at all, even if they are having difficulties seeing.
Book an appointment to ensure your child sees well, long into the future.
Please note we do not provide exams for children under the age of 5.
Looking & Learning
Many children are misdiagnosed with behavioural issues like ADHD when the real issue is vision-related. Children who cannot see clearly might learn at a slower rate than other children or become frustrated with school in general.
Potential Problems In Children’s Eyes
Strabismus (Crossed Eyes)
When the eyes are not properly aligned, it might result from a muscle condition called strabismus. Commonly referred to as crossed eyes, strabismus mainly impacts children under the age of 6. About 5% of kids have some degree of strabismus.
Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)
Amblyopia, commonly known as lazy eye, might occur if the brain and eyes are not working together properly.
If you notice your child squinting, tilting their head regularly, or shutting one eye, they may have amblyopia. The condition is a common cause of vision loss in kids, so ensuring they have regular eye exams is crucial to preserve their sight.
