Ask Dr. Kathryn a Question...

What about pre-schoolers? Are there signs parents should look for that would indicate a trip the optometrist is necessary?

First routine eye exam is recommended by age 4. Parents should bring children in sooner if they have any concerns including if they notice an eye turn, head turning while gazing, the child bumps into things, whiteness in the pupil, or unusual reflections noticed in photographs.

Why is my child having trouble reading and concentrating on schoolwork?

Your child may have an underlying refractive issue, such as farsightedness, nearsightedness or an astigmatism that maybe be causing blurred vision, making it hard for your child to concentrate and focus. There may also binocularity issues, which is how well the two eyes work together, or focusing issues that can affect a child's schoolwork. When working with your child, we will evaluate the visual system including binocular and accommodative systems to determine if his/her vision may be interfering with academic success.

Today it seems that many children are very quickly diagnosed as learning disabled or dyslexic. Does vision play a role?

In some cases a large undetected prescription (farsightedness or astigmatism) or an eye muscle imbalance (binocular vision problem) can make reading and learning a challenge. Once properly diagnosed and treated, reading and learning tasks can become much more comfortable, visually.
