Children′s Eye Care

While the eye's greatest physical development occurs during the first year, children’s eyes continue to develop throughout childhood. The eye muscles strengthen and nerve connections multiply. As your child’s body muscles develop and become more coordinated, your child’s eyes become stronger and work together more effectively. At Shapiro Eye Care, we feel it is important to monitor the development of your child’s eyes to ensure clear vision in the future.There are common visual disorders that when treated early in life can be avoided as your child grows older.

During your child’s comprehensive eye exam, visual acuity will be tested. This test measures the smallest object each eye can see at a certain distance. Normally, each eye will be done individually by covering one eye at a time. It may be necessary to tape a patch over a child's eye to keep him from peeking. The use of the Snellen eye chart is the most common way to test visual acuity. This chart uses letters and numbers that decrease in size. When taking the test, the distance between the patient and the chart is 20 feet.

20/20 vision is normal.  For children that do not know letters and numbers, they can be tested with the Tumbling E chart. To take this test, the child points his/her finger in the same direction as the E is pointing. Children who are younger than four may have trouble with this test so there are several different tests used to obtain a child's accurate visual acuity.

Other tests that are performed are:

  • Check for indications of crossed eyes
  • Check to ensure the child is using both eyes
  • Tests to check eye-hand-foot coordination
  • Tests to determine how well the child's vision skills are developing
  • Tests to determine normal color vision

Signs That You Child May Need an Eye Exam:

  • Holding a book too close to their eyes.
  • Difficulty reading the blackboard in school.
  • Complaints of blurry eyesight.
  • Squinting a lot.
  • Closing or covering one eye in order to see.

If your child is experiencing any of these symptoms, schedule your appointment today at Shapiro Eye Care.
