Why Kids Need an Eye Exam

Babies may not be reading, but their eyesight is vital to their development. Learning how to walk, hold objects, and form words are all largely developed through watching the world and people around them. Clear vision is important for motor skills and communication.

At 6 months of age a child should have their eyes examined for the first time. From then on, an annual visit to the optometrist is sufficient, unless otherwise directed.

Much of classroom learning is dependant on sight. Language, math, and sciences are all taught using words and images on a whiteboard at the front of the class. If a child struggles to read what is written they will also struggle to keep up, potentially leading to behavioural issues and poor grades.

Help your kids get their best education by having their eyes checked annually.

Childhood Myopia is on the Rise

Recently, there have been more cases of myopia diagnosed in children. Not only is there a rise in cases reported, it is being reported in younger children. Myopia, or nearsightedness, which results in poor distance vision is a progressive condition, meaning it usually gets worse with age. However, if myopia is identified early, we may have the ability to mitigate the problem.

Nearsightedness causes poor vision, especially at long distances. We have ways to reduce the eye strain caused by myopia and potentially reshape the eye giving your child better distance vision. With continued care, myopia control can prevent nearsightedness from getting worse over time.
