Notes From Your Doctor


Age Related Macular Degeneration

AMD is an eye disease that affects the macula, which is an area of the back of the eye that is responsible for clear central vision....


Pediatric Exams

Just like walking and talking, infants need to learn
to see and develop visual skills. Undetectedvision problems and eye conditions can cause developmental delays and are best caught early.

Look for these signs that may indicate an eye condition and vision problem in your child from birth to 24months old:
  • Excessive tearing
  • Red eyes or crusted eyelids
  • Constant eye rubbing
  • Excessive sensitivity to light
  • White pupil
  • Eye turning or crossing

Even if no eye or vision problems are apparent, the American Optometric Association recommends scheduling your baby’s first eye assessment at 6 months.
Your child’s comprehensive eye exam will test for:
  • Excessive or unequal amounts of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism
  • Eye movement ability
  • Eye health problems

As your child becomes school-aged, their visual demands will increase as they learn to read and write. Did you know that 80% of learning occurs through sight and 5 to 10% of kids have a visual problem? Of kids that have a learning disability 35 to 40% have a vision deficit! 
Is your child complaining of:
  • Eyestrain 
  • Eye fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Letters move or jump
  • Loosing place with reading
  • Double vision

Have you noticed your child doing any of these things:
  • Covering one eye
  • Tilting head to one side
  • Tilting papers
