    What is Paediatric Eyecare?

    Understanding About

    Paediatric Eyecare

    Early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of vision disorders in children is important for their long-term vision health and overall development. Vision significantly influences children’s physical, cognitive, and social development, affecting academic performance and quality of life. Undiagnosed vision issues can lead to school difficulties, behavioral problems, and developmental delays.

    Everyone, including parents, pediatricians, primary care providers, preschool staff, school nurses, and teachers, plays a role in identifying children’s vision problems early. Vision screenings are crucial for identifying children who need further evaluation by a professional.

    Untreated vision disorders in children have significant economic and social consequences, impacting families, society, and children’s future opportunities. Comprehensive vision and eye health services, including education, screenings, care coordination, and treatment, are vital to ensure all children receive timely and appropriate eye care, allowing them to reach their full potential.

    FAQS
    The first eye exam will usually take 1.5 to 2 hours as there is paperwork to complete. Future follow-up visits, if needed, will usually be much shorter.
    There are many good reasons to limit screen time for kids, but at this point we do not have evidence of permanent eye damage risks. However, a lot of screen time could lead to eye dryness, irritation, and eye strain.
    The American Optometric Associations recommends children to have eye exams after they attain six months, three years of age, and before their first grade. However, if your child has high risks of developing eye issues, they might need more frequent pediatric eye exams.
    Contact lenses are some of the best devices for optimal vision and convenience, especially for children who tend to lose or break their glasses or are highly active. However, since they are medical devices, you should treat them with proper hygiene and care. In most cases, we can consider recommending contact lenses for your child after 12 years of age, depending on their maturity and eye health.
    Most school vision screenings only determine general vision clarity. The examiners might not evaluate other visual aspects, including focusing skills, eye teaming, and ocular health.
