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, thus making it hard for your child to concentrate and focus. There may also binocular issues, which is how well the two eyes work together, and focusing issues, that may affect a child's schoolwork. When working with your child, we will evaluate the child's visual system including their binocular systems and accommodative systems to determine if his/her vision may be playing a role in their academic performance or sports performance.

Today it seems that many children are very quickly diagnosed as learning disabled or dyslexic. How does vision play into the problems and what are the differences?

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

Does Your Child Have Myopia? Send Them Outside!

Children who spend a considerable amount of time playing outside are less likely to develop myopia than children who spend most of their time indoors in front of the TV or computer screen. These are the findings of a recent university study. Since Myopia is a progressing condition that can lead to more severe vision problems, every parent should be aware of this.
