Looking Out For Your Eye Health

Good vision can change in the blink of an eye. By closely monitoring your child’s visual acuity and eye health, you’ll have a much better chance of spotting any changes as they happen and before they can cause permanent damage.

Conditions to Watch Out For

Certain eye diseases in children are common and easily contracted. It is essential to make sure your children practice proper hygiene habits and know how to avoid infection.

Conjunctivitis (pink eye) is a viral or bacterial infection of the conjunctiva (the filmy membrane that covers the inside of the eyelids and whites of the eyes). Symptoms include red, inflamed eyes that are itchy and watery. If accompanied by a viral infection, a runny nose and sore throat may also be present.

Conjunctivitis is extremely contagious, keep your child at home if they have symptoms to avoid infecting others. Conjunctivitis usually goes away after a few days, but your child may need medication if it lasts longer than a week.

A stye is an infected eyelash follicle that becomes red and inflamed. It appears as a small red bump on the lash line and can be quite painful. Styes usually go away on their own after a few days, but if they persist, it is book an appointment with us.

Cellulitis is an eye infection related to trauma or related infections in the eyelid or upper respiratory tract. Cellulitis causes the tissues around the eye are red and swollen, sometimes accompanied by a fever.

If you believe your child is experiencing cellulitis, please contact us immediately or head to your nearest urgent care facility.

A blocked tear duct occurs when the drainage system in the eye is blocked in some manner, preventing the tears from draining properly and causing irritation that can lead to infection.

A blocked tear duct causes extremely watery eyes. This may resolve on its own but, if it causes pain or doesn’t seem to go away, please book an appointment.

Our Services

The first step towards safeguarding your child’s vision is booking them an eye exam. When you bring your child in, we’ll test the quality of their vision as well as assess their overall eye health, helping to ensure that any potential eye conditions are caught early and dealt with effectively.

Children’s Eye Exams

Myopia is one of the most common vision problems affecting children around the world. Luckily, we can help you find the most effective way to manage myopia in your child so that they can get back to discovering their world with the clearest vision possible.

Myopia Control

Some eye conditions, like strabismus and amblyopia, can develop early in your child’s life. With vision therapy, we’ll be able to develop a series of exercises specific to the needs of your child that are designed to improve their vision over time.

Vision Therapy

Some eye diseases can develop over the course of a few years without patients exhibiting any symptoms, and can ultimately lead to vision loss. We’re here to diagnose eye diseases as quickly as possible and find effective management tools to protect your child’s sight.
