Identify the problem as early as possible

Faulty vision or eye diseases can be quite problematic and need to be dealt with as early as possible. Getting a regular eye checkup for your child and yourself is very important. Through regular eye checkups you can track your eye’s health as they develop. This ensures that you keep your eyes safe from any harm in the future by tackling any potential problems early.

When it comes to kids, an eye test at an early stage can determine whether they need glasses or not, and identify any potential issues. An experienced children’s optometrist can help correct your child’s vision if issues are detected early. Our optometrists use a range of techniques used by children’s optometrists to do exactly that.

Many children who are said to be “problem learners” may just have some form of vision impairment. Vision problems affect not just your child’s day to day functioning, but also make it even more difficult for them to read, write or pay any attention in the classroom. Thankfully, these problems can be avoided if handled correctly.

Vision problems that affect children and families

Vision problems don’t just affect adults, but children and teenagers as well. This is the reason why we suggest that you get an eye checkup every two years, and annually if you are over the age of 40. Problems that may affect your vision include:


Commonly referred to as “lazy eye”, this condition refers to poor vision in one eye, with the brain favouring the other eye. If not treated at the right time it can cause permanent vision loss in the affected eye.

Convergence insufficiency

A condition that causes one eye to turn outward instead of inward with the other eye creating double or blurred vision.


One eye looks directly at the object you are viewing, while the other eye is misaligned inward. The properly aligned eye is usually patched up to force the other eye to align itself. Surgery or corrective lenses can also help align the eye.

Refractive errors

Nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism are common vision problems that can affect children and adults as well.
