Set Them Up for Success
Imagine the wonder our littlest family members experience when they open their eyes for the very first time! Children’s eyes develop as they grow, and it’s up to us to make sure that they are hitting all the visual milestones for healthy eyesight.
It is vital to remain diligent when it comes to our child’s eye care. With our team of caring and knowledgeable doctors, we can catch vision problems and help correct them early, helping them find overall happiness and success in their school years.
Care for Our Tiniest Family Members
Children rely heavily on their vision for the first year of life, and the very first thing they’ll focus on is what they love most: YOU!
At Pacific EyeCare Optometry, we like to see your child for an eye exam when they are 1 year old. Once we have determined that their eyesight is developing at an average pace and that there are no overall vision concerns, we may be able to decide on the frequency of your child’s future appointments.
Between 3 and 5 years old, your child should have another comprehensive eye exam. In this exam, our optometrists will ensure that your child’s eyes are developing correctly and search for early signs of eye disease or conditions. At this age, children are learning the visual skills that prepare them for school. Parents can aid in this stage of visual development by providing activities like stacking blocks, coloring, and drawing. Although these tasks may seem minor, this type of play helps to improve reading and writing skills.
Your child’s vision is an essential part of success throughout their school years. Undiagnosed vision issues can significantly affect your student’s educational experience. In some cases, untreated vision issues can even share the same symptoms as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Comprehensive eye exams with an optometrist can help avoid misdiagnosis and eliminate stress and fatigue for your child.
