Children’s Eye Exams

Eye Exams For Children in Saskatoon

Young eyes are still developing. It’s important that your children’s eyes are healthy so they can live life to their fullest. They’re still learning about the world around them and keen vision is one of their most important assets.

Every child deserves to see clearly. The Government of Saskatchewan covers the cost of annual eye exams for every child under 18.

Children Need an Eye Exam

When children are just six months old they should have their first eye exam. At that age, they’re learning how to crawl and to manipulate small objects. Their motor skills are greatly influenced by being able to see properly. As with dexterity, a large part of communication is hinged on good vision. Body language, word formation, and identifying objects are difficult to develop without good eyesight.

After their first checkup at 6 months, children should visit the optometrist once a year, unless otherwise advised.

Eyesight in the Classroom

When children have reached their elementary years their sight plays a vital role in their learning. Over 80% of classroom learning is through visual cues such as whiteboards, books, and diagrams. If a child struggles to learn they could develop self-esteem or disciplinary issues, as well as receiving bad grades. Having their eyes checked is the easiest way to help them get a great start at school.

Detecting & Treating Myopia in Children

Myopia, otherwise known as nearsightedness, is increasing in children. It is being reported at a younger age, as well as more often. Nearsightedness creates poor distance vision, creating struggles for kids as they participate in sports and academics. This progressive disorder gets worse with age, but luckily modern myopia control has given us a chance to keep it from worsening.

Myopia Control

Nearsightedness is caused by an elongated eyeball or a steep cornea, making the focal point sit in front of the retina. With gentle reshaping, we can ease the effect of myopia and reduce the progression over time. Continued dedication to myopia control in children can make a huge difference later on in their lives.
