Common vision concerns with children:

  • Lazy eye:
    • 2 Types
      • Strabismus related-  True “Eye Turn”, where the eyes do not point straight ahead. Typically a muscle problem
      • Refractive Amblyopia- Large prescription in one or both eyes. This is usually asymptomatic early on and can go undetected.
        • Both eyes: Unclear retinal images presented to the brain. This can lead to permanent vision loss in both eyes
        • One eye: Means that the “good” eye takes over and the brain ignores the “bad” eye. This can eventually lead to blindness in the “bad” eye.
    • Treatment: if treated before the age of 6 most cases of amblyopia will resolve completely

We also carry a wide range of children’s glasses and sunglasses, please in store for our selection.
