Pediatric Eye Care: Why Is It Important?

  • Concerned that your child's eyesight may be hindering their development?
  • Does your child's eyes appear misaligned?

Studies show that up to 10% of young children have vision problems. However, kids generally aren't aware there's an issue, and don't complain about their eyes. It is therefore crucial to detect the first signs of vision problems before complications arise.

Give them the clear vision and healthy eyes they deserve by visiting our Elk Grove Village pediatric eye doctor at Elk Grove Optical.

4 Signs Your Child May Have a Vision Problem

  • Trouble seeing electronic screens

    Your child sits very close, tilts their head or squints to better see TVs, computer screens and other electronic screens.

  • Difficulty reading or following moving objects

    Your child often loses their place while reading, or can’t track a ball as it moves when playing sports.

  • Headaches & eye strain

    Your child complains of tired eyes or headaches after performing tasks that are visually intensive, such as reading or writing.

  • Missed milestones

    Your child may miss milestones such as crawling and walking, or show signs of poor depth perception.

For your child to successfully engage in sports and achieve their academic potential, they need to have healthy eyes and clear vision. The experienced and caring children's eye doctors at Elk Grove Optical will carefully examine their eyes and provide guidance to ensure your child’s healthy vision.


Pediatric Eye Care FAQs

How do you take care of kids
  • Make sure they wear sunglasses and a hat to protect their eyes from dangerous UV rays when outside.
  • Increase the time they spend outdoors. 
  • Make sure they eat their fruits and veggies. Fruits and veggies high in lutein and zeaxanthin have been found to protect eyes from free radical damage.
  • Schedule regular pediatric eye exams. Detecting and treating eye conditions and diseases commonly found in children, such as strabismus and amblyopia, can help prevent unnecessary struggles and vision problems later in life. The pediatric eye doctor will also check your child’s vision for refractive errors and visual skill deficiencies that might hinder your child’s development.

Such a smooth and efficient process, Airrionne was very helpful and honest about prices and the fram... es fitting my face to help me pick the best one! Highly recommend for an easy quick appointment and Dr. Mehta is very sweet!

Dr. Patel did my exam. Until now, no one ever explained the reasoning behind the difference between ... my contact lens prescription and my glasses prescription. She went into detail about astigmatism and how contacts of a higher prescription can compensate the uneven shape of the eyes without being engineered for astigmatic eyes. Was pretty cool to get those details finally after 10 years of glasses lol. The rest of the staff was great at informing me of my contacts and frames options and how that'd work with my vision insurance. I especially appreciate that they carry designer frames. Ended up really impressed with the service and casual professionalism of everyone at the store. Will definitely be back for my vision needs!
