HOW TO TELL IF YOUR CHILD NEEDS VISION CORRECTION

If your child needs glasses, chances are they’re not going to pick up on the signs alone. Here are a few telltales for you to look for if you think your child needs vision correction.

SQUINTINGdownload (5)

One of the more obvious signs is if your child is squinting to see. The reason they do this is because a blurry image is temporarily in focus when displayed through a smaller opening.

MOVING CLOSER TO SEE

Blurry vision will give your child the most trouble when reading a book or watching television. If your child sits very close to the screen, or bows their head closer to a book, this could indicate nearsightedness.

COVERING ONE EYE

Your child’s vision may be sufficient in one eye but lacking in the other. In this case, children often cover one eye to read or watch television. If left untreated, the chances of developing amblyopia, or “lazy eye,” increase.

RUBBING EYES

When children don’t realize they have a vision complication, they’ll try to fix it themselves by rubbing their eyes. Frequently rubbing eyes could indicate any number of eye problems, ranging from eyestrain to pink eye.

FREQUENT HEADACHES

When your children force their eyes to focus harder on something out of focus, it will cause a headache. This is usually the case for those with farsightedness.

EXCESSIVE TEARING

Lag Ophthalmus, a condition more common in children than you may think, is a disorder that causes eye dryness. Children that do not completely shut their eyes while sleeping do not get the moisture their eyes need. During the day, this results in excessive tearing to make up for the lack of moisture. As your children grow, there are many reasons why they may need vision correction. Don’t leave your children untreated, and visit our Dallas optometrist today!
