Adolescent Eye Health

Children eye health — Soddy-Daisy Eye Doctors in Soddy-Daisy, TN
It probably comes as no surprise that adolescent eye health is different from adult eye health. For example, the eye disease amblyopia is treatable in babies and younger children but becomes irreversible in older children and adults. Protecting adolescent eyesight is important and can be better accomplished by dissuading bad habits like smoking.

Signs That Your Child May Have Poor Vision

Our eyes change throughout our lifetimes, and they especially change during our adolescent years. If you have children, be sure to check for signs of negatively changing vision. Not only is poor eyesight annoying to deal with on a day-to-day basis, it also can impact grades and educational development.

Squinting & Complaining

One of the most common signs of poor vision in children is squinting and complaining about being unable to see clearly. If you notice your child holding reading materials close to their face, you may want to have their eyes examined. Having regular eye exams can also be telling when it comes to poor vision.

Short Attention Spans

Even though most people don’t think about short attention spans having anything to do with eyesight, the two may be related. If you notice that your child is developing a short attention span, their eyes may be to blame. Come in for an examination to rule eyesight out as one of the contributing factors.

Avoiding Reading

Even though there is a lot of technology and visual media in today’s world, reading has never been more important. Sadly, many children with poor vision ignore this vital skill because they get headaches due to squinting and straining their eyes. Glasses or contacts can do wonders for a child’s enthusiasm for reading.
