Children's Eye Health Month
“Children’s Eye Health Month” is serving as a reminder for parents to schedule eye exams for their children. It's also the beginning of a new school year, making it even more important to check your children’s vision. Residents in Las Vegas and the surrounding communities can bring their kids to Kopolow & Girisgen Doctors of Optometry for pediatric eye exams.
Importance of Regular Eye Exams
Young children need regular eye checkups to monitor their visual clarity, since their vision is still developing. Eye checkups will detect refractive errors that can hinder their sight.
During an eye exam, your Las Vegas optometrist can uncover vision problems like myopia, farsightedness, and astigmatism that affect your child’s visual clarity. Poor vision can keep your kids from excelling in school. It also puts them at greater risk of accidents. We’ll also look for signs of lazy eye, crossed eyes, dropping eyelid, and color blindness, all of which are common eye problems in children.
Symptoms of Vision Problems
If your children have difficulty or show little interest in reading, sit too close to the TV or computer screen, or squint when trying to see objects at a distance, they could be suffering from vision problems. Most problems can be corrected with prescription eyeglasses so your kids can enjoy optimal sight.
Eye safety is another aspect of eye health and vision. Children who play sports should wear protective eyewear to safeguard their eyes. Serious eye injuries can affect your child’s vision for years to come. It’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your child’s sight.
