Valuable Visual Skills

Children aren’t born with the necessary visual skills—they develop them over time.

Good visual skills can help set your child up for success. Eyesight is involved whether it’s reading, interacting with other kids, throwing a ball around, or seeing what the teacher writes on the board.

Children who start school with undiagnosed vision problems may struggle to keep up in class. They may be misdiagnosed with ADHD or another behavioural disorder. Regular eye exams are vital to identifying and starting myopia treatment early.

Stages Of Sight

There are many milestones in a baby’s visual progression. Here’s what to expect at some critical stages:

A Pediatric Ophthalmologist in Surrey suggests that as babies grow and develop, you can help encourage their healthy visual development by playing games. Use games like peek-a-boo and patty-cake, provide objects that can be explored with the hands and grasped, and play games that include dropping things and picking them up. To help your child develop healthy visual skills, bring them in for comprehensive eye exams in Surrey.

How Do I Know If My Child Needs Glasses?

If children are experiencing a vision issue, they often cannot articulate the problem—they might not even know there is a problem. Kids can experience signs or symptoms that may not seem visual—like tiredness, poor concentration, or difficulty keeping their place while reading. They may develop vision problems standard glasses can’t correct alone, like strabismus (eye turn) or amblyopia (lazy eye), which can affect how their vision develops. Bringing your child for regular eye exams with a pediatric ophthalmologist in Surrey allows us to establish a baseline, evaluate their symptoms, and provide the necessary myopia treatment or other personalized care.
