Ask Our Doctors a Question...

What is the difference between an eye turn & a lazy eye?

A. Strabismus or an eye turn is when both eyes do not look in the same direction together. Lazy eye or amblyopia is commonly when only one eye is weaker than the other. This often results in a higher prescription or blurry vision in one eye compared to the other eye.

Why would a child who is struggling with reading or learning need their vision checked by a developmental optometrist?

A. Eye doctors are trained to identify problems in visual development and eye health. However, developmental optometrists have additional training to evaluate all 17 visual skills, how they work together with the brain, and how to treat a visual problem as well.

Did you know that a post-concussion or TBI ought to be evaluated by an eye doctor trained in neuro optometry?

A. After any form of head trauma, people have to go undergo various tests and evaluations to help them recover. Whether they have to visit a neurologist or a chiropractor, Whenever there is a head injury, you can expect the rest of the body has suffered as well. What may seem most important and often overlooked however is their vision. Most of our learning is done through our eyes, so any form of head trauma can disrupt visual processes resulting in a multitude of symptoms, such as headaches, dizziness, poor balance, blurry vision, an inability to focus or concentrate for long periods. It is critical to get an evaluation by an eye doctor trained in neuro optometry to ensure that you can recover from any sort of head trauma or concussion without lingering side-effects.

Are children really required to get an annual pediatric eye exam?

A. Children often are the epitome of good health, however, their vision happens to be more sensitive and less stable than adults. As adults age, they become increasingly concerned about eye disease, children may require additional help to develop their visual skills. An annual pediatric eye exam is critical to ensure that their visual development is progressing normally.
