What age should I bring my child in for a Pediatric Eye Examination?

It is recommended that children aged 5 or 6, entering either kindergarten or the first grade, receive an eye examination before the start of school. This eye examination will help determine if any previously unknown vision problems exist. It is important to know about any visual difficulties your child may be experiencing, as this can greatly affect school performance. If your child needs prescription glasses to help them in school and through daily activities, SightMD has you covered!

Why are Routine Eye Examinations important?

Routine eye examinations are the bare necessity when it comes to eye care. Many common eye problems are found through routine eye examinations, making them very important to maintaining eye health. During a routine eye examination, you will be tested for any visual problems, changes in visual problems, as well as screened for eye diseases such as glaucoma and cataracts. Diseases when caught early on are more easily treated making attending regular eye examinations very important.

Why is Cataract Treatment and Screening important?

As we age, the natural lens in our eye becomes cloudy, causing blurry and distorted vision. Cataracts develop very slowly over time. If you attend regular eye examinations, your doctor at SightMD will know of their presence long before they become a problem. Early diagnosis of cataracts is important, allowing you and your doctor to keep an open dialogue about their development and determine when surgery is necessary.

Cataract surgery at SightMD is extremely advanced and successful. Cataracts are so common that cataract surgery has become a routine procedure. If you would like to know more about cataract surgery at SightMD, call us to schedule an appointment!
