Niles Township Pediatric Eye Care
Have you been looking for a great eye doctor who can provide eye testing for your child? It is very important that kids have their eyes checked on a regular basis. Problems with vision can negatively affect their school work, their sports performance, and even their interaction with friends. Some kids even develop behavioral problems at school because they are so frustrated with not being able to see well. Young children may not even think to mention to their parents that they are having trouble seeing at school; this is just one reason why it is really important that you have your child’s vision tested on a regular basis. Whether your child needs a pediatric eye exam, or other Niles Township pediatric eye care

It is not only important to make sure that they don’t have refractive vision problems but that they don’t have other eye problems as well. When your child comes to us for Niles Township pediatric eye care
, all aspects of their vision will be examined.
During our Niles Township pediatric eye care
exam, your child’s eyes will be examined for any refractive problems. If your child is nearsighted, farsighted, or has astigmatism, our eye doctor will be able to write an eyeglass prescription; these will easily correct their refractive vision problem. There are many eye diseases or disorders that can affect your child’s vision as well. Many of the common problems have to do with your child’s ability to focus, and alignment disorders between the eyes. Early diagnosis of any eye problem will make it easier to treat, and will generally result in more successful treatment. One of the most common kids’ eye problems that we screen for is amblyopia. Amblyopia is sometimes called “lazy eye.” In fact this eye problem generally affects up to three out of every 100 people in the US. Amblyopia can result from misaligned eyes. There are many treatments for this eye problem. Treatment depends on the individual child’s situation. If you would like your son or daughter to be seen by our eye care specialist, contact us today for an appointment.
