Nearly 25% of school-aged children have vision problems.
Of children ages 3-5, close to 1 in 20 has a problem that could result in permanent vision loss if left untreated. It is estimated that 80% of preschoolers do not receive any vision screenings. It is recommended that a child gets his or her first eye exam at 6 months of age.

Common vision concerns with children:

Lazy eye (2 Types)

  • Strabismus related:  True “Eye Turn”, where the eyes do not point straight ahead. This is typically a muscle problem.
  • Refractive Amblyopia: Large prescription in one or both eyes. This is usually asymptomatic early on and can go undetected. If in both eyes, unclear retinal images are presented to the brain. This can lead to permanent vision loss in both eyes. If in one eye, this means that the “good” eye takes over and the brain ignores the “bad” eye. This can eventually lead to blindness in the “bad” eye.
  • Treatment: if treated before the age of 6, most cases of amblyopia will resolve completely

We also carry a wide range of children’s glasses and sunglasses, please in store for our selection.
