Just like adults, children need to have their vision and eye health examined regularly. At Modern Eyes Optometry in Carlsbad, CA, our pediatric optometrist provides eye exams for children to ensure they have optimal vision. We offer eyeglasses and other solutions to vision problems. Here are just some of the reasons why eye care is important for children.

Kids Aren't Aware of Vision Problems

Parents can have a challenging time grasping how clearly their kids can see. Children are less likely to tell adults that they're having a problem seeing clearly, whether it's out of embarrassment or if they are accustomed to their current vision. Our eye doctor can determine if there is a problem with your child’s vision and detect potential eye health concerns.

Children Need Clear Vision to Succeed in School

Much of what your child learns throughout the day will be in the form of a visual presentation. For example, kids need to look at the board, read books, and work on computer assignments. A simple vision correction can often improve academic performance and provide your child with more confidence to do well in school. A common diagnosis for children is myopia, also referred to as nearsightedness. Without correction, it's common for kids to squint, resulting in loss of focus or tension headaches.

Provide a Baseline for Eye Health Moving Forward

Serious eye diseases are more common with the older population, but that doesn't mean children can't have issues. Regular eye exams can not only detect eye conditions, but they allow our optometrist to establish a baseline to compare as your kids get older. Then, with as much information as possible, our eye doctor can help manage the condition with the best care possible.
