The Importance of Your Child’s Vision!

  Okaloosa Eye Care wants you to know that your children’s vision is very important to us. We are dedicated to helping you detect and treat any type of vision problem your child may have. It is important for us to help educate you on the importance of healthy vision for your children. Answer this question honestly: When was the last time you had your child’s vision checked? Did you know that having a child’s vision tested by an optometrist can lead to greater success in the classroom? This is due to the fact that most of a child’s learning occurs visually. Did you also know that some students that were diagnosed with a learning disability may actually have vision problems instead? “More than 80% of the information they receive at school comes through their eyes.” The top three children’s vision problems are: 1. Myopia (Near-Sightedness) 2. Hyperopia (Far-Sightedness) 3. Astigmatism (Football-Shaped Cornea) The ideal way for parents to know whether their children have vision problems is to come in and have a comprehensive eye exam. However, there are also some signs and behaviors parents can watch for that may indicate a child is struggling with his or her vision that OEC wants you to know about. Look at Your Child’s Eyes . . . Does he or she have one that doesn’t line up? Does one eye appears crossed or looks outward? Are their eyelids are red-rimmed? Crusted? Swollen? Do they have watery eyes or red eyes (do the eyes appear to be inflamed)? Look at Your Child’s Actions . . . Does he rub his eyes frequently? Does she close or cover one eye? Does she tilt head or thrust her head forward to see? Does he have trouble reading or doing other close-up work? Does he hold objects close to eyes to see? How about blinking? More than usual? Does he or she seems cranky when doing close-up work? Does your child squint eyes or frown to see? Listen to What Your Child Says . . . “My eyes itch.” “My eyes burn.” “I can’t see very well.” When doing some close-up work, does your child ever say: “I feel dizzy.” “I have a headache.” “I feel sick.” “Everything looks blurry.” Our optometrists encourage parents to be proactive with their children’s vision. It can make a real difference in their lives. (850)...
