Pediatric Eye Care: Why Is It Important?

  • Concerned that your baby’s eyesight may be hindering their development?
  • Do your toddler’s eyes appear misaligned?

Studies show that up to 10% of preschoolers 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 Crossroads pediatric eye doctor at Vision Care Crossroads.

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 Vision Care Crossroads will carefully examine their eyes and provide guidance to ensure your child’s healthy vision.


Pediatric Eye Exams: What You Need to Know

  • Baby’s First Eye Exam- 6 months old

    Though your baby won’t be able to speak yet, we can still assess their eye health. Is there anything abnormal about their eyes' appearance? Do the eyes move in unison? Can your baby’s eyes follow a toy or a familiar face in motion? Do they respond to light? Your child’s general eye health will be assessed for infection, or eye conditions such as an eye turn or potentially sight-threatening eye disease.

  • Eye Exams for Toddlers and Preschoolers: Ages 2 - 5

    At Vision Care Crossroads we do our best to make eye exams fun for the little ones; we use toys and other fun objects where possible, and our eye charts for little kids feature colorful shapes or pictures that they’ll recognize. We check for poor depth perception, color vision problems, strabismus/amblyopia (eye turns/lazy eye), and problems with visual focusing. Our optometrist may dilate your preschooler’s pupils to get a better view of their retina, optic nerve and blood vessels.

  • Eye Exams of School-Age Kids: Ages 6 - 18

    For this age group, our eye care team will use advanced technologies to assess refractive errors and determine how well the visual system is functioning. This includes checking for difficulties with distance and near vision and signs of eye disease, eye-coordination problems or other health conditions.

I 100% recommend Dr. Sam Hsu. I have been going to see him for about 20 years and he has always bee... n friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, and willing to explain everything to a level of detail that satisfies my curiosity. He also has an amazing memory and it's like we just talked yesterday when I go to see him. See you next year Sam. Also, to give a little extra context about my 5-star rating. My insurance changed and I chose to pay out of pocket to continue to see him this year. The staff was very clear and helpful about what any tests and procedures would add to the bill.

Just wanted to give a shoutout to Dr. Sam Hsu - seriously impressive! I dropped by last month and ha... d an awesome experience. Dr. Hsu is a total pro, explained everything clearly and had a great knack for making me feel comfortable. What blew me away was how he knew the ins and outs of insurance. Saved me some cash by working out what my plan covered. Total lifesaver. Plus, the ladies at the front desk are always friendly and helpful, putting patient's needs at the first place. The clinic has a cool, laid-back vibe that instantly puts me at ease. Highly recommend

Our family has been going to Vision Care for almost a decade. All the staff are friendly, caring and... professional. Dr. Sam, and Dr. Lee go above and beyond. Dr. Sam gets to know the families and he understands our needs (sports, jobs, and even sleep patterns) to recommend our eye cares. What I really love about them is that they genuinely care, I had an eye infection and had an appointment scheduled. My child's eye check appointment was a few days earlier than my appointment. While I was there for my child's appointment, Dr. Sam saw me and told me that he would take care of me right then too instead of waiting for my appointment. His patients' well-being are important to him.

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.
At what age should I bring my child for their first eye exam?

Our pediatric eye professionals recommend you bring your child in for their first eye exam at around 6 months of age. This allows your child’s eye doctor to check that their vision is progressing as expected. Early detection and treatment of certain conditions at this stage of development are essential for keeping your child’s vision and eye health on track, and can help prevent complications as they grow up.

Can I use Ortho-K lenses if I have dry eye syndrome?

While kids may wear glasses from as early as a few months of age, most kids who wear glasses tend to get them between the ages of 6 and 12. The three main conditions for which they wear eyeglasses are myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism.
