Parents can monitor and maintain their children’s eye health by keeping regular appointments with an optometrist. Dr. Bunch and Dr. Kehbein at Bunch Family Eye Care have provided quality eye care services to residents in and around Plano, TX for years. Pediatric eye care is essential for a child’s success in school and other daily activities. Our team at Bunch Family Eye Care has gathered a few of the questions that we run into from parents regarding eye care for their children.

Pediatric Eye Care FAQs

How Often Should My Child See An Optometrist?

Children's eyes change rapidly and require annual eye care visits to monitor and maintain proper vision. Children depend on clear vision for school and other activities such as clubs and sports. Annual eye exams will determine if your child has the correct prescription. Secondly, children often physically change quickly causing their glasses to become too tight.

What Is Involved in a Pediatric Eye Exam?

Depending on the child’s age, there are a series of tests involved, such as visual acuity, lazy eye (amblyopia), eye tracking and teaming, and testing ocular health. Correcting your child’s vision problems as early as possible is crucial for success in school. A pediatric eye exam tests proper eye functioning, monitors eye health, and makes sure your child has clear vision.

Can Children Wear Contact Lenses?

Some children prefer not to wear glasses because they are involved in sports activities or feel embarrassed. Children under ten do not get contact lenses because they are more prone to rubbing their eyes with unclean hands. Once the teenage years are approaching, the transition to contacts is usually considered a safe option. Our optometrists will recommend the best way to correct your child's vision.

How Can I Tell If My Child Needs Glasses?

As a parent, it is important to keep your guard up and look for any unusual habits. Children are less likely to reveal they are having problems seeing clearly. Below are some signs that your child may need glasses:

  • Recurring headaches at home or school
  • Sitting close to the TV or computer screen
  • Excessive squinting
  • Falling grades

Why Are Pediatric Eye Exams Necessary?

Eye exams are imperative for children. There are underlying eye health issues that are not easy to identify and eye conditions that can cause vision loss. Even without showing symptoms, children may have refractive errors. Only an optometrist can identify certain eye conditions with the proper tools and training.
