Kids Eye Exams In Cincinnati, OH
Children’s eye exams are extremely important for several reasons. Childhood eye conditions such as strabismus and amblyopia or lazy eye can be corrected if they are caught early before the visual system is fully developed. It is also important to make sure your child has the best possible vision during their school age years. Kids don’t often complain about their vision when they are younger even if a problem exists. This is because they may not know what is normal and what is not normal vision. Proper learning in school starts with good vision even as early as preschool. Poor vision can make learning difficult or even impossible for your child.
Vision Therapy in Cincinnati, Ohio
Prescription glasses and contact lenses can be an effective solution for refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia. However, there are many vision conditions which corrective lenses cannot fix. Among these are conditions which can cause difficulty with attention and learning. In fact, some kids who have been diagnosed with ADHD, ADD, or other attention disorders are found to have had a vision condition that prevented them from seeing well in school. For most of these children, once this is corrected with vision therapy, the child’s behavior, attention span, and learning in school improve. Vision therapy is a program of eye exercises aimed at correcting specific vision issues and common eye disorders like amblyopia, convergence insufficiency, and lazy eye. As you can imagine, it is much easier to pay attention in school when the letters are clear and single rather than blurry and double.
Dr. Young started a vision therapy clinic at the Opticare Newport office in 2010. Since then we have had many success stories for children and adults to improve their vision and learning after being diagnosed with a binocular vision disorder. If you suspect you or your child has a binocular vision disorder and would benefit from vision therapy, schedule an appointment for a binocular vision exam today.
