Good vision plays a very important role in your child’s education & recreation. Children’s ability to learn & play is affected by their visual health. Unfortunately, there are many vision problems that are common in children. The key is to see a Pelham Bay kids optometrist for regular eye exams so they can be diagnosed and treated as early as possible.
There are many common disorders that affect children’s vision. Some examples include: congenital cataracts, amblyopia, strabismus and nearsightedness. Congenital cataracts are cataracts that are present at birth and can be detected in newborns. The newborn’s natural eye lens is cloudy instead of clear which impedes vision. Although it’s not always the case, surgery is often recommended to remove the cataracts because they can interfere with normal vision development. While congenital cataracts can be diagnosed at birth, there are many common pediatric vision problems that may not be present at birth but could be detected early during an eye exam. It’s important to take your child to a Pelham Bay kids optometrist for regular comprehensive eye examinations for this reason. In the meantime, if suspect any vision problems or changes in your child’s vision, you should take him to the eye doctor right away. It’s also helpful to be aware of some of the common pediatric vision problems and warning signs. Some of them include but are not limited to: amblyopia, strabismus and myopia (nearsightedness). Amblyopia, also known as “Lazy Eye”, is a common condition in which the visual acuity of one eye is much better than the other eye. Amblyopia could be the result of another common pediatric vision problem called Strabismus in which the eyes are misaligned. One eye would look straight ahead while the other eye turns up, down or inward. If your child is nearsighted, he would be able to see objects that are nearby much more clearly than objects that are far away. Some signs include squinting and holding objects close.
