Clear Sight for Everything in Life
From the moment your child is born, their eyes are constantly adapting to the world around them. Your child relies on their vision a lot throughout life, so it’s important to ensure their eyes have the support they need as they develop.
At Riverside Optometry, we understand just how important your child’s sight is. We want to help your child see everything they can in the world.
Our team is ready to help your child enjoy their vision. Contact us to book an appointment today.
Making The Most of Your Child’s Sight
Throughout your child’s life, their eyes are making a number of important developments that will help serve them. Some of these changes include several visual skills that help them learn about and interact with the world around them.
Your child relies on their vision for 80% of their learning. By taking your child in for regular eye exams, we can help observe and manage their eye development. We can help oversee the proper development of visual skills like hand-eye coordination, depth perception, focusing, and more.
Common Eye Problems in Children
Even though your child’s eyes may be young, they still have a risk of developing eye health issues at various points in life. We customize your child’s eye exam to address their specific needs while using comfortable, comprehensive techniques to search for potential issues that may affect your child’s quality of life in the future.
Your child can develop an eye or vision issue without knowing it. If you notice your child struggling with their vision, like frequently squinting, holding objects close to their face, or sitting close to televisions or computers, be sure to book an appointment with us today.
Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a refractive error that affects the clarity of your child’s distance vision. Myopia can develop as your child reaches school-age, and it can progress into adulthood.
Please visit our Myopia Control page to learn more about this condition and how we can help manage its development.
Amblyopia, also known as lazy eye, is an eye condition that can cause one eye to “wander.” Your child may develop amblyopia if they have different refractive errors in each eye or if their eye muscles haven’t developed properly.
Conjunctivitis, or pink eye, is a common eye condition many children can develop during their lifetime.
This condition causes a number of irritating symptoms, and certain versions of it can spread between children at schools and daycares through bacteria or viruses. Children with allergies may develop conjunctivitis, as well.
