Frequently asked questions about pediatric ophthalmology:
Children ophthalmologists at the eye clinic “New Vision” can assess vision condition of even the youngest patients. Ophthalmologists around the world agree that children should be fully examined at the age of 2 to 3 years.
Preventive medical examinations in kindergartens and schools are designed to detect distinct disorders, clearly visible pathology, advanced diseases. As a result, the initial stages of serious conditions such as amblyopia, cataracts, astigmatism, retinoblastoma, and other conditions cannot be identified during such preventive medical check-ups. Based on current worldwide practice, we recommend an annual comprehensive examination of your child’s visual system to ensure that all eye diseases are detected early and cured by applying modern methods in a timely manner.
Young patients do not complain of eye problems, thus parents should be especially attentive if:
- the child rubs his/her eyes often,
- narrows a lid of one eye being outside,
- does not follow moving objects,
- the child’s eyes get red often,
- the child’s eyes diverge to any side (even if this occurs only occasionally),
- the child bends or turns his/her head when looking straight ahead,
- the child’s eyes twitch (even if this occurs only occasionally),
- the child has been diagnosed with diabetes,
- the appearance of right eye differs from the left according to certain parameters (i.e., size, appearance, pupil diameter),
- in photos taken with the flash, one of the child’s pupils glows pink and the other glows white,
- the child has experienced any eye trauma.
If you notice at least one symptom, contact our pediatric ophthalmologist.
Of course it is possible. The eye clinic “New Vision” uses the generally accepted, reliable tests Lea and Cardiff, which allow to assess the vision of a child of any age, regardless of whether the young patient has started speaking.
Pupil dilating drops are necessary to properly assess the optical properties of the eye and to have a complete examination of the fundus (retina and optic nerve). The eye clinic “New Vision” uses special drops that almost do not irritate the eyes and do not cause allergic and side reactions. After such an examination, the child can go to school the very next day.
Generally, yes. Such complaints are usually caused by “hidden” farsightedness, myopia or astigmatism. In this case, the child should be examined by a pediatric ophthalmologist.
No, this is not possible. Untreated strabismus can, in the long run, seriously and irreversibly damage a child’s entire visual system. Such impaired vision limits a young person’s personal and professional life. The team of professionals at our eye clinic “New Vision” can diagnose early strabismus and cure this disorder even in the youngest patients.
If the child’s optical power is impaired (myopia, farsightedness, astigmatism), then glasses are the main “medicine” and allow the young patient to grow and develop correctly. With farsightedness, the glasses weaken as the child grows and can be abandoned in the long run. Myopia and astigmatism of any degree can be cured permanently by laser correction when the child is 18 years old. The specialists of our eye clinic “New Vision” are unrivalled leaders in laser vision correction.
Can. The eye clinic “New Vision” uses modern, highly effective devices for the treatment of amblyopia, strabismus, myopia, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Depending on the results of the diagnosis, your pediatric ophthalmologist will prescribe an individual treatment and prevention program for your child.
