Why Are Eye Exams Important?

Many vision and eye health problems can develop without noticeable symptoms, especially in their early stages. Comprehensive eye exams can help detect the first signs of these issues and allow us an opportunity to address them with uniquely tailored strategies.

We see children as young as 5 years old and encourage yearly eye exams. Regular eye exams can help detect some of the most common issues they can develop, like nearsightedness, farsightedness, lazy eye, and crossed eyes.

Does Your Child Have a Vision Problem?

In some cases, your child may be too young to notice issues with their vision, allowing them to develop for much longer than they need to.

Thankfully, there are a few behavioral signs you could look for that may indicate a developing vision and eye health concern, like:

  • Constant headaches
  • Eye strain
  • Sitting close to TV and computer screens
  • Struggling at school
  • Short attention span
  • Difficulty reading
  • Head tilting to look at objects
  • Trouble playing sports
  • Closing or covering an eye to see 
  • Sitting at the front of the class to see
  • Holding books close or far away from their face
  • Memory difficulties
  • An eye losing alignment
  • Seeing double

Common Vision & Eye Problems for Children

If your child shows one or more of the symptoms above, it might be time for them to have an eye exam.

While there are a number of different vision and eye issues children can develop, there are a few usual suspects our team always looks for during an eye exam. If we discover a problem developing, we’ll be happy to create a unique strategy to manage their symptoms.

Myopia (Nearsightedness)

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a visual error that affects your ability to see faraway objects clearly.

It commonly develops in school-aged children and can progress into adulthood. Glasses and contact lenses can help provide clear vision, but we may recommend certain strategies to help manage myopia progression.

If your child has 1 eye that seems to be drifting, they may have amblyopia. This issue, also known as lazy eye, can occur if your child’s eyes have an uneven lens prescription or if certain eye muscles underdevelop as they grow. If it’s left to progress, your child’s brain may ignore images from their “weaker” eye, causing vision loss.

Younger children may develop some degree of lazy eye, but we recommend getting it assessed by our team during an eye exam.

Strabismus, also known as crossed eyes, is an eye condition that affects the alignment of both of your child’s eyes. Like lazy eye, your child may show symptoms when they’re quite young, so it’s important to have it checked by our team during an eye exam. Also like lazy eye, your child’s brain may ignore images from their “weaker” eye, leading to vision loss.

Underdeveloped eye muscles, uneven lens prescriptions, and genetics can all cause crossed eyes.
