Children's Eye Exam in Del Mar

Do you have a child who is in need of a pediatric eye exam? Even if your child does not seem to be experiencing vision problems, he or she should have a periodic eye exam from time to time to make sure their eyes are healthy, and they do not need treatments. Oftentimes children do not even think to mention to their parents that they are having trouble seeing at school. However, vision problems can cause children to do poorly at school, or even cause behavioral problems due to extreme frustration on the part of the child. When your child has a vision exam at school, this only checks part of what needs to be looked for during a comprehensive pediatric eye exam. If you would like for your child to come in and see our pediatric eye doctor for a children’s eye exam in Del Mar, contact our office, Optometry Cabana.

Our top-notch optometrist is Dr. Tania Stevens. Dr. Stevens is a therapeutic eye doctor who is able to evaluate and manage most eye conditions. She is able to provide complete eye exams for both adults and children. If your child does have an eye problem, the sooner it is diagnosed the better. This is because the sooner a child’s eye problem is treated, the easier it generally is to treat, and the more responsive the problem will be to treatment. During our children’s eye exam in Del Mar, our optometrist will screen your child’s eyes for many different childhood eye problems.

During a children’s eye exam in Del Mar, our eye doctor will check for any focus and alignment disorders that can affect his or her vision. It is not uncommon for a child to have amblyopia, a condition that is also known as “lazy eye.” This problem begins when one eye has better vision than the other. It can result from the child having strabismus (misaligned eyes), or from other eye problems as well. There are several different treatments for amblyopia and strabismus, which our optometrist will be able to discuss with you. Another frequently seen childhood eye problem is ptosis. This is when an eyelid droops and blocks the eye, interfering with the child’s vision. Children can even have cataracts. If cataracts are detected our optometrist will refer you to a pediatric ophthalmologist who specializes in treating this problem. Our optometrist can also help with common childhood eye problems such as conjunctivitis or a stye. If you would like for your child to have a comprehensive children’s eye exam in Del Mar, contact us today for an appointment.
