Children’s Eye Exams in Los Angeles

Seeing Is Succeeding

Little eyes need to be looked at too! Setting kids up for success begins with making sure they can see the world in front of them.

Simple vision screenings, like ones performed in many schools, simply aren’t enough to detect vision problems. While we do test your child’s visual acuity, a comprehensive eye exam is necessary to ensure their ocular health.

Good vision is essential to academic achievement and athletic performance. Make sure your child is headed in the right direction. Book them a comprehensive eye exam today.

On The Lookout for Learning Problems

Undiagnosed vision problems in children can lead to trouble in school, development problems, and poor social skills. Children who have vision problems are sometimes misdiagnosed with learning or behavioral problems like ADHD.

Regular comprehensive eye exams can help your child avoid learning difficulties. Children should have well-developed visual skills by the time they attend school. Seeing well at a range of distances, following words along a page, and throwing a ball around the playground are all vision-related activities.

If your child is struggling academically, sometimes all it takes to get back on track is a pair of glasses or vision therapy.

All Eyes on Vision Conditions

During your child’s eye exam, we’ll look for a range of vision conditions, including:

Strabismus (Crossed Eyes)

Strabismus, also known as crossed eyes, is a muscle condition. If your child’s eyes don’t look at the same place at the same time, strabismus might be the culprit. Usually, strabismus develops in infants and very young children.

This condition won’t resolve on its own. Failure to treat strabismus may cause it to become worse.

Amblyopia, also known as lazy eye, usually develops before age 6. If there is a large difference in visual acuity between the eyes, there is a risk of amblyopia.

This condition is the leading cause of decreased vision in children. Amblyopia isn’t always obvious. Only a comprehensive eye exam can detect the condition if it isn’t immediately visible.

Myopia (nearsightedness) causes distant objects to appear blurry while closer objects are clear. It’s caused by an eye that’s too long or a cornea that is too steep.

Most children receive a myopia diagnosis before age 12. Myopia can be controlled if detected early.

Set Them Up for Sight

Whether they need glasses or vision therapy, we’re here to help your child reach their full potential. From infants to teens, our doctors are looking forward to caring for your entire family. Book an appointment for your child today.
