PEDIATRIC EYE CARE WITH INNOVISION FAMILY EYECARE

Eyesight is essential to a child’s learning and normal development. Regular eye exams give your child the best chance at leading a healthy, successful life with good vision and healthy eyes.

WHY IS EYE CARE FOR KIDS SO IMPORTANT?

The most common pediatric eye conditions can be successfully treated as long as they are diagnosed early. Left untreated, many common eye problems cannot be reversed. We provide effective treatment and therapy to correct common development concerns, such as:

  • Amblyopia (lazy eye) - Amblyopia is a problem with the way the eyes and the brain work together, further aggravated by a lack of visual acuity in one eye. Lazy eye can be successfully corrected if addressed early on.
  • Ptosis - A condition in which a child's eyelid tends to droop occurs when the muscle around the eye cannot properly support the eyelid. When addressed early, ptosis can be corrected.
  • Strabismus (crossed eyes) - Strabismus is an ocular disorder which occurs when a child (or adult's) eyes do not focus in the same direction at the same time. Typically caused by poor eye muscle control, strabismus can be successfully corrected with special eyewear.

Children commonly suffer from other common eye concerns, like conjunctivitis, which can be allergic, bacterial or viral. In addition, children can development sight-threatening diseases normally associated with adults, such as glaucoma and macular degeneration.

WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD VISIT THE KIDS' OPTOMETRIST?

Pediatric eye care usually begins with an infant examination to ensure proper development of eye function. Toddlers should have another eye examination to assess development and motor function. It is recommended children have a comprehensive eye exam prior to starting school, and required by Texas state law that school-aged children and teens have an annual eye exam thereafter.
