Seeing clearly is important in the learning process. Equally important is the ability to accurately point the eyes, accurately move the eyes with a moving target and from point to point, and the ability to accurately change and/or sustain focus at any necessary distance.
Although rare, children also can develop disease of the eye such as cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachments, and macular problems. These conditions must be evaluated for in each eye exam as early detection can lead to early treatment that can lead to better health.
Early eye exams also look for eye conditions such as amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (crossed eye) and binocular coordination skills. When these conditions are found, early intervention can have better outcomes
Because it’s difficult for a child to compare his vision with others, and because parents cannot see through a child’s eyes, vision that is blurry may actually seem normal to that child. This is one of the most important reasons for early and frequent eye exams.
