Healthy Eyes at Every Age
Regular eye exams are an essential part of your child’s health as they grow and develop. Much of what a child learns is done visually and an eye exam can help ensure your child’s eyes and vision are healthy, helping them succeed in all areas of their life.
At Compass Eye Care, our team is dedicated to helping your child’s vision excel. We take the time during every appointment to learn about your child’s needs, assess their entire visual system, and develop treatment plans to help them thrive.
Vision Symptoms to Look Out For
Maintaining a regular eye exam schedule for your child is especially important as it can be difficult to tell when your child is having vision issues. However, some signs could indicate your child may be experiencing vision problems.
Squinting can be a sign that your child has a refractive error. Refractive errors are common in children and affect how well they can see objects at different distances. If your child is squinting it may mean that they are having trouble focusing on an object.
Tilting Their Head to See
If your child is tilting their head, or covering one of their eyes to see, it may be a sign that your child has misaligned eyes. Misaligned eyes, or lazy eye, is a common disorder in children.
Holding Objects Close to Their Eyes
Rubbing Their Eyes Excessively
Complaining of Headaches or Eye Pain
Two common symptoms of an eye issue are headaches and eye pain. These complaints could be a sign that their eyes are overworking to correct an inability to focus or blurred vision.
Difficulty Concentrating on School Work
Because children need healthy vision to read and write, vision problems can often cause them to become discouraged when doing school work. This can result in a lack of focus on school work and other activities.
