INDICATORS THAT YOUR CHILD NEEDS AN EYE EXAM

Vision problems in children can sometimes go undetected, since a child may not even realize her vision is any different from those around her. Rather than expressing to you that she has trouble seeing, she might naturally do things to compensate without thinking about it. There are several clues that indicate your child might need vision correction. Here are a few of the most common indicators that you may need to take your child to get an eye exam:

A DROP IN SCHOOL PERFORMANCE

download (1)So much of the learning that takes place at school is visual. If your child cannot see the writing on the whiteboard clearly, then his grades will suffer; not only because he is missing out on crucial information, but also because he may get frustrated and have difficulty focusing on his work.

SQUINTING

Squinting is a common indicator of nearsightedness (poor vision from a distance) and that your child is trying to compensate for blurry vision.

HEADACHES

The constant effort that your child is exerting to compensate for poor vision can cause frequent headaches.

RUBBING THE EYES

If your child rubs her eyes often, it could be because her eyes are fatigued. This could indicate any number of vision problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and even conjunctivitis.

READING OR WATCHING TV WITH ONLY ONE EYE

If one eye has poorer vision than the other, your child may try to compensate by covering or shutting that eye.

MOVING CLOSER TO THE TV

If your child prefers to watch TV from up close, it may be a sign of nearsightedness.

WHEN TO SEE AN EYE DOCTOR

Any of the above indicators are a good reason to schedule an appointment with an experienced eye doctor. Only a complete eye exam can diagnose nearsightedness, farsightedness, and other vision problems like strabismus and astigmatism. If you think your child might have trouble seeing at school or at home, schedule your Dallas eye exam today. Photo credit: kenteegardin via photopin cc
