Anisometropia is a condition where one eye has a different refractive power than the other eye. It’s one of the most common causes of amblyopia, also referred to as “lazy eyes.” A+ Vision Optometry, your provider of vision therapy and other quality eye care services, talks about this eyesight problem in detail.
Refractive errors, like far- and nearsightedness, are common among children. Since most kids are visual learners, it’s important to address these vision problems immediately. We may prescribe corrective eyewear during their pediatric eye exam to help improve their eyesight.
Some vision problems cannot be corrected by eyeglasses or contact lenses. A+ Vision Optometry offers vision therapy as an adjunct or alternative treatment. Also referred to as vision training, its goal is to improve the communication and working relationship between your eyes and brain. It usually involves performing a set of eye exercises for a certain period.
Myopia, more commonly referred to as nearsightedness, is a refractive error that often begins while you’re young. This is why it’s also known as childhood myopia. While you have no problems seeing objects up-close, you may struggle recognizing figures that are far from you.
Your child’s vision plays an important role in their learning, which is why A+ Vision Optometry emphasizes the need to take care of their eyes. Since their eyes are still developing, they may not easily realize when they are having eyesight difficulties.
