Why a Regular Eye Exam is Important for Children

Why a Regular Eye Exam is Important for Children in Plano and Celina, TX

If there are children in your family, are you making sure they are getting regular eye exams? At Lone Star Vision Eye Care and Optical in Plano and Celina, our optometrists offer pediatric eye care for children of all ages, starting with infancy. You may not give it much thought, but good vision is critical for babies eye-hand coordination, color distinction, balance and walking. As children grow to school age, vision becomes important to their ability to learn and play sports. But eyes and vision can change rapidly in kids and they may not even be aware of it. A vision exam from our optometrists at Lone Star Vision can help detect developing issues and we can offer solutions.

Signs of Vision Problems in Children

Vision problems in children can cause problems like trouble concentrating, poor grades and even disciplinary problems. While not all children with vision problems will display outward symptoms there are some signs to look for. They include:

  • Tilting of the head when trying to read
  • Covering of one eye or the other
  • Headaches
  • Squinting
  • Reluctance to read

A pediatric exam at our eye care center will give you the peace of mind that the vision in your child is at its optimum.

Common Vision Problems in Kids

Like adults, children can experience a variety of common vision problems. They may experience near or farsightedness, lazy eye, color blindness, astigmatism, or eye misalignment. Our pediatric optometry exams will determine any problems and offer eye care solutions to help resolve them. We are pleased to offer our young patients a wide range of good looking frames they can be proud to wear.
