Benefits of Pediatric Eye Care
Early diagnosis of vision problems in children is crucial for maintaining excellent eye health and preventing loss of vision through lack of care. Children need to see clearly as they develop motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Nearsightedness and farsightedness are common issues children may need help with. These conditions can cause headaches in addition to affecting the quality of sight. Children can suffer from impairment if they have vision problems that are left unchecked. Another area that children need clear vision for is sports. Children and teens who are active in sports need the best vision possible to perform optimally. For these reasons, routine pediatric eye care is an essential component of excellent eye health for your children.
When Should Children Visit an Eye Doctor?
Children should see our eye doctor starting at 6 months old and continue to have checkups as they develop. We recommend visiting our office every two years when children reach school age. A different schedule may be needed, based on the personal conditions and developmental needs of your child. Establishing a relationship early on with our qualified optometrist is an excellent way to practice healthy eye care habits for your children.
