A patient's family was kind enough to share their experience of doing therapy with us. The following is an excerpt: "Our grandson was diagnosed with severe dyslexia and ADD. We first noticed his problem when he was in the first grade. He was unable to recognize words, spell, ..." Please click on the photo below to read about their entire experience.

MORE SCREEN TIME and KIDS. One of the results of smartphone or computer use in children, regardless of whether it's for academics or for play, is dry eye disease. In a study involving more than 900 students, clinicians discovered that smartphone or computer use was strongly associated with dry eye disease. Staring at screens increases the thickness of the tear film thereby leading to dry eye disease in students. The long-term risks of dry eye disease include increased risk of eye infections, damage to the front surface of the eye and difficulty performing every day tasks like reading and writing.

MORE SCREEN TIME and KIDS. Increased screen time at a young age has been associated with decreased gross motor skills development. One study reported that TV viewing at 29 months of age was associated with subsequent lower gross motor skills development at 65 months of age.

In addition, high screen time in early adolescence has been associated with more headaches and backaches. Furthermore, physical activity does not appear to improve those physical maladies. The effects of screen time on physical problems is believed to be cumulative. For more information and to have your child's vision evaluated, contact us at www.brighteyeandvision.com

SCREEN TIME and KIDS. Does screen time cause nearsightedness to get worse? Can you tell my son/daughter to stop playing games on his/her phone? Is screen time bad? These, and others like them, are common questions that parents ask us frequently. Follow us as we embark on a mini-series to investigate what's true and what's myth based on clinical research and personal experience working with many families and their children. Let others know about this. You, and they, will find it interesting and helpful. Here's a starter:

The World Health Organization recommends that children between the ages of 5 to 17 years engage in moderate-to-vigorous exercise for one hour per day because of the health benefits to developing children. Interestingly, even this daily exercise does not reverse the negative effect of too much screen time. In a study involving over 1000 U.S. children ages 6 to 15 years of age who exercised at least 1 hour per day, more TV watching was still associated with worse physical strength.

Up to 90% of people who have suffered a MILD TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY report having subsequent READING PROBLEMS. After the concussion, 90% of these people have fine eye movement problems, 40% have difficulties properly focusing their eyes and 50% report light sensitivity. These visual problems will adversely affect: 1. ability to scan across a sentence, 2. ability to keep words clear and accurate, 3. comfort while reading and 4. maximum reading duration. Returning to normal daily activities can be severely hindered by post-concussion reading problems. Visual skills therapy has been shown to provide long-term relief to the above symptoms. We specialize in visual skills therapy. Contact us at www.brighteyeandvision.com.

Poor EYESIGHT is associated with increased odds of DEMENTIA according to two large-scale studies in the U.S. Poor distance or near eyesight was associated with approximately a 2 to 2.5 times greater likelihood of dementia. The findings "highlight the importance of timely detection of visual impairment in the elderly population" per the studies' authors. If you, or someone you know, is in the aging population, please make eyesight a priority. Vision problems are significantly associated with decreased cognitive function and senile dementia.

Cosmetics will cake onto contact lenses within 30 minutes of application according to research studies. These deposits can affect vision, comfort and health of contact lens wear. Here are some precautions to take if you wear makeup and contact lenses:

1. Wash hands before inserting contact lenses
2. Insert contact lenses prior to any facial product
3. Remove contacts prior to removing makeup
4. Apply hairspray or aerosol deodorant prior to insertion
5. Use water-soluble makeup or those labeled safe for contacts
6. Avoid waterproof mascara and eye makeup containing nylon or rayon fibers.
These can lodge underneath the contacts and scratch the cornea.
7. Eyeliner applied to the inner lid can clog tiny glands and lead to irritation and
inflammation.
8. Frosted or glittery eye shadows contain particles that can harm the eye if
trapped underneath the contact lens.
9. Oily makeup removers can cause a cloudy film over the contacts affecting
vision and health.
10. Remove makeup daily with a good makeup remover that works well with
contact lenses.

A child's vision may change frequently during the school year without the student or parent noticing. Vision includes a child's eyesight, the need for a prescription as well as visual skills such as focusing, eye coordination, fine eye movements and more. Academic success requires many different moving parts, and one of these important but often overlooked aspects is vision.

Take this FBISD school holiday on Friday to have your child's eyes checked especially if he/she shows some of the following symptoms: avoidance of reading, excessive rubbing or blinking of eyes, short attention span, headaches, loses place often while reading, difficulty remembering what has just been read, holding materials too closely, words seem to move on the page, seeing double, uses finger to maintain place while reading, reads very slowly, skips or omits words when reading, poor reading comprehension, print appears to go in and out of focus, eyes hurt or feel tired after only a few minutes of reading, makes errors while copying, crooked or poorly spaced writing, feels unusually tired after reading, re-reads words or sentences, unusual head posture when reading or doing near-work, eyes become watery or red when reading.

Pediatricians play a vital role in the management of eye conditions in children. However, some young children can be difficult to assess because of their lack of compliance while some conditions are just difficult to diagnose in a pediatrician's office. The eight most commonly missed eye disorders in a primary care physician setting are: amblyopia, eye trauma, glaucoma, ocular inflammation, leukocoria, systemic disorders that affect the eye, small-angle strabismus and subtle nystagmus. The visual outcomes of these disorders can be maximized through early detection and proper subsequent treatment. If you suspect that your child may have one of these conditions, contact us at www.brighteyeandvision.com
