Many aspects of a child’s vision can be improved if treated early. Common childhood vision problems such as amblyopia (lazy eye), and strabismus (crossed or misaligned eyes), may not appear in school vision exams and often improve with treatment.
Cataracts can lead to vision loss and even blindness if left untreated. Early detections vital, and regular evaluation of the health of your eye lens is required for preventative treatment.
Visual acuity testing is used to diagnose astigmatism, myopia (nearsightedness), and hyperopia (farsightedness). The results from these tests are used to create a prescription for contact lenses or glasses to give the patient 20/20 vision.
If you want to improve your vision with contact lenses, a separate exam needs to be done to test the suitability of the eyes for contact lens wear. The doctor will measure to ensure the contacts prescribed are a perfect fit and comfortable for the wearer.
Elevated pressure in the eye can cause glaucoma, which causes damage to the optic nerve. Glaucoma can lead to irreversible blindness, so frequent eye pressure testing is recommended.
Corneal exams can help diagnose allergies and assess scratches on the outer portion of the eye. Retinal examinations look at the tissue at the back of the eye and can detect early signs of eye disease. Both exams are used to assess the overall health of the eyes of the patient.
