What are the key elements of eye exams for children? Well, certainly a big part of it is determining how well your child is seeing right now. If he or she needs eyeglasses, our Sunset Park pediatric eye exams will ascertain that and allow our eye doctor to write a prescription to address it. Having proper vision is essential for your child’s continuing educational development. If she or he is nearsighted, farsighted, or has an astigmatism, glasses will correct the visual issue and give them sharper and clearer eyesight at all distances. The other reason for an eye exam is to root out any signs of eye disease or conditions so that they can be treated. This includes the common diseases that can affect adults and children alike as well as those that only pertain to kids.

Our Sunset Park pediatric eye exams aren’t scary nor painful. Eye drops used to dilate your child’s eyes might sting a bit, but that’s the only possible concern. Using various tests, our doctor will find out how your child sees at all distances, up close, far away, and in-between. Her or his peripheral (side-to-side) vision will also be gauged. An eye chart is utilized. Your child will read letters and pictures on it or if he or she is not yet of reading age, the tumbling E game is a fun and effective alternative. A series of E’s are shown and your child will say in which direction each one is pointing. Should the results of the tests reveal a need for glasses, you will receive a prescription. It’s wonderful to observe how much happier children are when their vision is sharper and clearer.

Two of the childhood eye issues that are checked for during our Sunset Park pediatric eye exams are ambylopia (often called “lazy eye”) and drooping eyelid. Other diseases, like cataracts and glaucoma, while more common in older adults are also found in children and so a screening is important. Such diseases don’t have any symptoms associated with them in their early stages. Diagnosing them before they are able to cause eye damage or vision loss is imperative.
