Every child should have his or her first eye examination by age three to discover any early signs of vision problems. Henry Ford OptimEyes offers comprehensive eye examinations by experienced optometrists who understand pediatric needs. Our optometrists know that good vision is directly related to a child's ability to concentrate and therefore learn in school.
Common pediatric vision problems include:
- Farsightedness: The eye is comfortable seeing at a distance but must strain to see up close, causing fatigue and headaches.
- Astigmatism: Difficulty focusing evenly on objects that are the same distance from the eye.
- Lazy eye: A lazy eye is a perfectly good, healthy eye that does not see well.
- Crossed eyes: Crossed eyes are due to an eye muscle problem that may be present at birth or can develop later in life. This condition will not go away on its own and needs to be treated with exercises or glasses since it damages vision, as well as appearance.
