Oftentimes children are having problems seeing at school but they don’t even think to mention this to their parents. They may be having trouble seeing to the front of the class or even reading from a book or computer screen. This often results in poor grades and may even cause behavioral problems at school brought on by frustration of not being able to see clearly. Vision problems can also cause problems for children while playing sports or in social situations. When your child’s vision problems are corrected they will be able to reach their fullest potential. A comprehensive eye exam is the first step. Our Silver Spring pediatric optometrist
will not only check your child’s visual acuity, but will also check your child’s eyes for any signs of eye problems or disease. Studies have shown that the majority of children who are not able to read well often have problems in their control of eye movement. Good eye development begins when infants receive stimulation that helps them develop their eyes functions. Signs of vision problems can be: holding books closely; child covers one eye while reading; squinting; poor posture when doing desk activities; poor attention span; homework takes longer than expected; child skips or repeats words while reading; or many other behaviors. During our pediatric eye exams your child’s sight will be thoroughly tested. Testing will include making sure that your child does not have problems with: eye focusing skills; depth perception; eye teaming skills; color vision; “lazy eye”; strabismus; or other eye problems.
