When you bring your child in to see our pediatric optometrist in Henderson NV, our eye doctor will make sure that your child has a relaxing time during the vision exam. The vision exams are completely pain-free. Our optometrist will examine your child’s eyes for many different eye diseases and vision problems. Two of the most common childhood vision problems are amblyopia or strabismus. Amblyopia, is also called lazy eye. In this vision condition, which affects almost 3 out of every 100 children, the eye and the brain are not working properly together. In fact, amblyopia is the most common cause of vision problems that children experience. It usually has its onset early in life when vision is being developed. If it is not treated in early childhood, the problem will usually continue into adulthood. Symptoms of amblyopia can include: eyes that turn in or out; eyes that do not look as though they are working together; poor depth perception; or poor vision in one eye. Our eye doctor will let you know which type of treatment is necessary to correct this vision problem. Strabismus is a vision condition commonly referred to as crossed eyes. It occurs when both eyes do not look at the same object at the same time. This is because the muscles that surround the eyes are not working well together. Strabismus is a common condition in children, and it can also occur for some patients later in life. Our eye doctor will let you know the best treatment based on your child’s individual vision development.
