“Each year when school starts,” reports the American Optometric Association, “we see an increase in kids complaining of symptoms synonymous with eye strain.” If your child complains about eye soreness, burning, itching or dryness after using electronic devices, talk to your optometrist about specialized computer glasses to reduce eye fatigue.

Kids learn better with healthy eyes! Pack school lunches with antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies to support eye health. Exercise helps, too, encouraging oxygen-rich blood flow to the eyes.

If your child is diagnosed with amblyopia, there are many ways to help strengthen the weaker eye, including patching the stronger eye, using eye drops to blur vision in the stronger eye, and visual acuity exercises to enhance eye teaming skills.

Do your kids really need to visit the eye doctor if their vision is screened at school? Yes! School screenings are intended to indicate the need for further evaluation, not to diagnose underlying issues. Only your optometrist can perform a comprehensive exam. Call us to schedule one today!

Amblyopia is not only the top cause of eye impairment in kids; it's also the most common cause of monocular (one eye) issues among young and middle-aged adults. Unless lazy eye is effectively treated in early childhood, it almost always persists into adulthood. Keep both eyes healthy with regular visits to your optometrist.

What would happen if you only had one eye instead of two? Your field of vision would be narrower, and your depth perception and peripheral vision would also suffer. That’s what people with untreated amblyopia (lazy eye) can expect, which is why it’s critical to catch and treat this disorder early.
