Visual Conditions

Myopia

Children with myopia may have difficulty seeing the teacher's board at school. Other symptoms are squinting, headaches, and eye strain. This visual condition can be experienced alone, or in a combination with other visual conditions. It is a very common ailment that can be treated with prescription contacts or glasses.

Facts About Myopia

Hyperopia

Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is when you can see distant objects clearly but things that are closer to you are blurry. Hyperopia occurs when the eye is smaller and has a shorter depth than an average eye. When light enters an eye with hyperopia, the light is focused behind the retina rather than directly on the retina. Children with this visual condition may have difficulty seeing school materials. Common symptoms of hyperopia include squinting, difficulty doing close work, and eye strain.

Astigmatism makes vision at all distances blurry. It is caused by a deviation in the spherical curvature of the eye. Astigmatism is one of the most common refractive errors, and it is often paired with myopia or hyperopia. For children with this condition, schoolwork and learning become difficult because vision at all distances is blurry.

Amblyopia

 
 

Amblyopia is a serious visual condition that can be most effectively treated with early intervention. This condition occurs when the eyes do not communicate correctly with the brain, causing the brain to favor vision in one eye, causing the vision in the other eye to be decreased. Individuals with this condition may be considered to have only half of their vision. This can cause learning difficulties for children, and unique life challenges for adults. A child with amblyopia may be treated with a combination of vision therapy, patching, or prescription glasses. Dr. White will suggest a treatment that is individualized for your child's needs.
