Early Diagnosis Is Crucial for the Future
Many children suffer from poor eyesight, and don’t get the care they need early enough to reverse or correct for the problem. Here at Neal Eye Group, we are passionate about your child’s eyesight, and want to do everything in our power to protect their vision in the future. If your child has undiagnosed or untreated vision problems, they may struggle in school, with relationships, and in everyday life. That’s why we are here to help.
Statistics show that almost 1 in 10 children deal with some type of undiagnosed vision problem, and we want to fix that problem. If these conditions are left untreated, permanent, serious damage may occur. In order to help your child be successful in all phases of life, we encourage you to bring them in for eye treatment as soon as you feel they need it.
Guidelines for Eye Screening
We know you are busy as a parent, that your child requires different types of care. We encourage you to use the following guidelines to determine when to bring your child in for an eye appointment.
- 6-12 months
- 2-3 years
- 5-6 years (before entering school)
- Every year after
While these guidelines are important, you should also bring your child in if you notice any of the following problems that may be the sign of a vision disorder that should be treated:
- Family history of lazy eye or amblyopia
- Closing or covering one eye
- Frequent squinting
- Tearing or redness of the eye
- Rubbing the eyes continually
- Head tilting
If you notice your child has any of these problems, schedule an appointment to have their eyes checked today. We want your child to enjoy good vision well into their elderly years, and set them up for success with the right treatment for many disorders.
