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, 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.
Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)
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 (Crossed Eyes)
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.
MiSight for Myopia
MiSight 1 dayare easy to fit, single-use contact lenses that are clinically proven to slow the progression of myopia when initially prescribed for children 8–12 years old. These specialty lenses work by helping to slow the elongation of the eye and myopia progression, while correcting the refractive error.
Myopia control using MiSight 1 day can be prescribed to children ages 8–12. Book an appointment today to see if your child may benefit from MiSight.

Our Google Reviews And Testimonials
I cannot express in words the efficacy and professionalism of Dr. Pham however, I will try. I have a serious eye condition: keratoconus and a very extreme case at that. Unfortunately, eyeglasses are not an option for me therefore contacts are my only means for sight. I’ve always lived with mediocre contact fitting and lens prescription. For the first time in years I was able to see 20/20 because of Dr. Pham’s mastery of her craft. It wasn’t easy for her, during the exam she went above and beyond unsatisfied and unacceptable of any result but perfection for my sight. Her prowess of due diligence was as if it were her own eyesight she was correcting. I wish I met her years ago.
I was very pleased with the professional care received at my initial appointment! Dr. Pham explained everything in detail and Angelica was very helpful in assisting me selecting my frame. Even without insurance it was very affordable. Definitely going back for my annual check up.
Si necesitan un medico para revisar sus ojos la Dra Pham es la mejor opción. Es muy profesional y explica todo en detalle.
I would 11/10 recommend Eyedeal Eyecare. The office is absolutely beautiful, uses the most current technology, and has a large variety of stylish frames to choose from. Dr. Pham is not your average doctor, she goes above and beyond to make sure you have the best experience. She is patient, kind, and extremely thorough. Angelica was so sweet and knowledgeable, she definitely made the process of choosing a pair of frames easier. We could not have asked for a better experience and will definitely be returning for all our future eye care needs!
