Every parent wants what’s best for their child. Their health is our main priority. That’s why we watch them, observe how they behave, and watch out for any symptoms indicating that something may be wrong. It is due to that careful observation that many parents bring their children to our facility to see our Pediatric Ophthalmologist in Livingston. They say their child is squinting or complaining about not being able to see clearly. Or perhaps the child is sitting very close to the TV or holding a book right in front of their nose. All of these symptoms may indicate that the little patient may be having trouble with their vision. In a situation like this, the best thing a parent can do is to schedule an appointment with our Children’s Ophthalmologist in Livingston.
If you are worried there may be something wrong with your child’s eyes, don’t hesitate to come in and see our doctors. There isn’t a ‘minimum’ age that the child needs to be in order for our pediatric ophthalmologist to be able to do an exam. Even if your child doesn’t show any signs of there being an eye problem, you should bring them for an exam at the age of 3 or 4 for their first checkup. It’s very important as there are conditions that may only be treated at an early age. The examination includes measurement of visual acuity, eye alignment, motility, refraction, and fundoscopy (an examination of the back of the eye).
