Your child’s health is the most important thing in your world, and that includes eye health. If you want your child to have the best possible chance of a long and successful life, they need good vision. That’s where a pediatric eye care vision comes in.
Wondering why you should come see a San Jose ophthalmologist? The bottom line is, your child needs a strong and healthy vision if they’re going to succeed in school and life. Without good eyesight, children have difficulty engaging at home, in the classroom and out in the world. A San Jose ophthalmologist will be able to diagnose any eye conditions and let you know the solution before eye trouble becomes a real problem.
The most common vision problems in kids include lazy eye, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. There are a few others that we routinely see as well, although the signs and symptoms may not be obvious at home. That’s why it’s so important to bring your child in for a screening today.
Kids who have undiagnosed vision problems have trouble learning to read and write, can’t see the board from their seat in the classroom, and have a hard time completing schoolwork or working with others. As a result, they may withdraw from their studies and fall further and further behind. You can avoid that happening by getting them the eye help they need.
Pediatric eye exams are simple and painless. Your doctor will prescribe a series of tests, such as the letter chart, to help determine any eyesight problems, make a diagnosis, and determine a course of action immediately.
