The Importance of Regular Eye Exams for Children

Book Appointment

Your child’s vision development plays an important role in his or her capacity to learn and to socialize with others. The longer a vision problem goes unnoticed, the harder for the brain to accommodate the impairment. This is one of the reasons children do not verbalize their vision handicaps.

Eye Exams

At Park Slope Eye, we understand your concerns as a parent. We recognize the need to detect vision problems of your child as early as possible. That’s why we highly recommend regular eye assessments for your child. Our pediatric eye doctors in Brooklyn, NY, discuss the importance of eye exams for kids.

Early Detection

If your child squints when looking at something, this may indicate a vision problem. Regular eye exams allow us to identify any irregularities in your child’s eyes. As early as 6 months of age, we recommend having your child undergo an eye exam.

Eye exams are also advisable when your child turns 3 years old, before starting school, and every two years during grade shcool. We may also check your child’s visual acuity, depth perception, alignment, and movement. This provides a good opportunity to correct vision problems so that your child can more easily learn and socialize.

Prompt Management

Your child’s treatment plans depend upon the eye exam results. Immediate treatment prevents progression of vision issues that could impair your child’s eyesight for life. Our doctors may include prescription for glasses or vision therapy in Brooklyn, NY, as needed. We also advise serving nutritious and vitamin-rich food beneficial for your child’s eyesight.

Regular Evaluation of Treatment Regimens

Conducting eye exams helps us monitor the effectivity of our recommended treatment plans. It also helps in the maintenance of the overall wellbeing of your child. With our eye specialists’ skills and our advanced technologies, we welcome every opportunity to help you and your child maintain clear eyesight.

Whether you need an eye exam or dry eye treatment in Brooklyn, NY, we can assist your family’s needs. If you have any further questions about pediatric eye exams, you may call us at (347) 380-7070. You may also fill out our contact form to schedule an appointment.
