Prompt Detection of Underlying and Potential Eye Conditions

The American Optometric Association recently released a new evidence-based pediatric eye care guide, which includes a systematic process of checking various aspects of your children’s visual health. It aims to promote awareness and understanding of the importance of kids’ routine vision screenings and comprehensive eye exams.

Vision screenings are brief, general evaluations of your children’s eye health. They are often required by schools to establish your kids’ risk of having vision problems that may hinder their learning and normal development. Comprehensive eye exams, on the other hand, are thorough and in-depth assessments of visual health and includes various tests and procedures. Both forms of eye tests are effective tools for identifying underlying and potentially sight-threatening problems.

Early Management of Established Vision Problems

With early detection of eye conditions, vision tests also give us a great opportunity to provide immediate treatment. This can help prevent the progression of identified vision problems, giving us better chances of preserving your children’s eyesight. If we find signs of refractive errors, for example, we may prescribe wearing contact lenses or eyeglasses to improve visual acuity. This can greatly reduce their risk of having learning difficulties or developmental delays.

Regular Monitoring and Evaluation of Our Suggested Eye Care Plan

With regular eye tests, we’ll be able to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of our recommended management. This way, we can quickly make necessary changes or upgrades for better eye health.
