The importance of children’s eye exams
Children’s optical functions begin developing at a very early age; thus, it is very important to have regular comprehensive eye examinations to make sure the process is going smoothly. Even if your child already has a corrective prescription, we recommend scheduling check-ups to ensure their vision hasn’t changed. At our office, we offer proactive diagnoses of vision disorders so that corrective action can be taken. As optical health for children is very important for learning in school and day-to-day life, we are committed to staying on top of optical health from every angle. You can learn more about our exams and children’s glasses and contacts below.
Dr. Durante and our experienced team in Jensen Beach administer special tests just for children to detect vision issues and muscle limitations that may affect vision. When performing our in-depth examinations, we test for signs of poor eye health such as lazy eye and crossed eyes. We also test your child’s focusing ability, depth perception, and color detection. Comprehensive inspections of the lens, iris, and cornea make sure everything is healthy and working the way it’s supposed to.
Important vision-impairment related symptoms
Behavioral symptoms are a common indication that your child is suffering from optical impairment. If you have observed any of these symptoms in your child, it is very important you let our doctors know. The symptoms include:
- Delayed motor development
- Excessive blinking
- Poor eye tracking skills
- Inability to fixate
- Frequent eye rubbing
- Failure to maintain eye contact
- Recurring sties
