Eye Tests for Kids

At Eyecare Plus Corrimal, we provide detailed eye tests to rule out conditions that may affect your child’s reading and academic performance.  Below is a list of conditions that we routinely watch out for with every eye exam for kids:

Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)

When visual development stops in one eye due to blur or an eye turn. This can force the good eye to work extra hard and cause permanent visual problems. Amblyopia can rarely affect both eyes.

Short-sightedness (Myopia)

Blurry distance vision, making it hard to see the smartboard.

Long-sightedness (Hyperopia)

Mild or moderate cases can cause difficulties concentrating with reading. Severe cases can cause blurry vision up close.

Convergence Insufficiency

When both eyes fail to pull in enough to read without eyestrain.

Other Issues

Many other vision problems can affect the eyesight of children.  These include binocular vision issues such as accommodative insufficiency, and other eye conditions such as keratoconus.

After conducting a detailed eye test for children, we can determine the best long-term management for your child to ensure that we remove any visual distractions that can impact on their learning, and prevent damage to your child’s eyesight.


Note on children with ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Learning/Behavioural Disorders

Children with learning and behavioural disorders are at a higher risk of also having vision problems [1] – for example, patients with attention-deficit disorder (ADD/ADHD) are 3x more likely to have convergence insufficiency than the general population [2].

Therefore a full eye exam is highly recommended to rule out any visual problems that can worsen the symptoms that these children suffer.
