Infant/Pediatric Eye Exams
The eyes and vision of children are just as important as that of adults. The visual system is developing until about the age of 8. During this critical time period the eye is forming connections to the brain which if impaired can cause lifelong decreases in vision. Risk factors for a lazy eye as well as any ocular disease should be uncovered as young as possible to give them the best chance of good vision. Most of these risk factors can easily be ignored by a child. Children just think it is normal for them and do not complain of any symptoms. So most children do not complain about their vision especially before they are school age. Another interesting fact is that 80% of a child's learning is through vision.
