Pediatric Eye Care: Why Is It Important?

  • Concerned that your baby’s eyesight may be hindering their development?
  • Do your toddler’s eyes appear misaligned?

Studies show that up to 10% of preschoolers have vision problems. However, kids generally aren't aware there's an issue, and don't complain about their eyes. It is therefore crucial to detect the first signs of vision problems before complications arise.

Give them the clear vision and healthy eyes they deserve by visiting our Northwest Side pediatric eye doctor at Bella Optical.

4 Signs Your Child May Have a Vision Problem

  • Trouble seeing electronic screens

    Your child sits very close, tilts their head or squints to better see TVs, computer screens and other electronic screens.

  • Difficulty reading or following moving objects

    Your child often loses their place while reading, or can’t track a ball as it moves when playing sports.

  • Headaches & eye strain

    Your child complains of tired eyes or headaches after performing tasks that are visually intensive, such as reading or writing.

  • Missed milestones

    Your child may miss milestones such as crawling and walking, or show signs of poor depth perception.

For your child to successfully engage in sports and achieve their academic potential, they need to have healthy eyes and clear vision. The experienced and caring children's eye doctors at Bella Optical will carefully examine their eyes and provide guidance to ensure your child’s healthy vision.


Pediatric Eye Exams: What You Need to Know

  • Baby’s First Eye Exam- 6 months old

    Though your baby won’t be able to speak yet, we can still assess their eye health. Is there anything abnormal about their eyes' appearance? Do the eyes move in unison? Can your baby’s eyes follow a toy or a familiar face in motion? Do they respond to light? Your child’s general eye health will be assessed for infection, or eye conditions such as an eye turn or potentially sight-threatening eye disease.

  • Eye Exams for Toddlers and Preschoolers: Ages 2 - 5

    At Bella Optical we do our best to make eye exams fun for the little ones; we use toys and other fun objects where possible, and our eye charts for little kids feature colorful shapes or pictures that they’ll recognize. We check for poor depth perception, color vision problems, strabismus/amblyopia (eye turns/lazy eye), and problems with visual focusing. Our optometrist may dilate your preschooler’s pupils to get a better view of their retina, optic nerve and blood vessels.

  • Eye Exams of School-Age Kids: Ages 6 - 18

    For this age group, our eye care team will use advanced technologies to assess refractive errors and determine how well the visual system is functioning. This includes checking for difficulties with distance and near vision and signs of eye disease, eye-coordination problems or other health conditions.

I had an appt roughly 12 days ago, and I must say the staff is amazing. They were all so helpful as... I have never worn glasses before, and the exam that let me see the interior of my eye was really cool. The doctor was very pleasant and patient with me and answered all of my questions in detail. The entire staff is wonderful, and now I am just waiting for my glasses to come in. The only hiccup is that I left 2 messages inquiring as to when my glasses would possibly arrive or if they had any update and I Never received a call back, other than that if you go anywhere else you are making a mistake trust me. I love it there.

Late review. My appointment was in July 2022. Honestly, I only went for an exam, but their profess... ionalism and customer service was A+. There was absolutely no way that I’d take my prescription somewhere else. While I may not remember everyone’s names, I do remember that they all paid attention to detail, they listened, and provided a lot of feedback to me. Every question I had was answered. I absolutely love my glasses. They match my personality. Lol. Also, the young lady who helped me pick out my glasses was so knowledgeable. So knowledgeable as if she made the glasses. I did my own research about the company and everything she stated was accurate. They even gave me some Godiva chocolates with my purchase. Everything was so thoroughly explained that I didn’t even have questions. My glasses arrived as scheduled. The service that they provided was so great that I wanted to speak to the manager. This place has the kind of employees that anyone would want to hire. I definitely would. Also, when I’ve called about a vision concern, they took the time to listen and provided feedback on the next steps. Thank you and I’ll see you again soon!

I recently purchased a new pair of glasses and had a great experience purchasing at Bella Optical. A... nalyze Camacho gives you a top notch experience in getting fitted, confirming your the clarity of your vision and making sure you are comfortable with your new pair of glasses. What most stood out is her knowledge of different brands they offer and taking the time to listen to what is most important to her customer. If you’re looking for more than just average service, and want good personal service on your next purchase of glasses , go by and check out Analyce at Bella Optical. Thanks again, Joel G.

Pediatric Eye Care FAQs

How do you take care of kids
  • Make sure they wear sunglasses and a hat to protect their eyes from dangerous UV rays when outside.
  • Increase the time they spend outdoors. 
  • Make sure they eat their fruits and veggies, especially those that are high in lutein and zeaxanthin have been found to protect eyes from free radical damage.
  • Schedule regular pediatric eye exams. Detecting and treating eye conditions and diseases commonly found in children, such as strabismus and amblyopia, can help prevent unnecessary struggles and vision problems later in life. The pediatric eye doctor will also check your child’s vision for refractive errors and visual skill deficiencies that might hinder your child’s development.
At what age should I bring my child for their first eye exam?

Our pediatric eye professionals recommend you bring your child in for their first eye exam at around 6 months of age. This allows your child’s eye doctor to check that their vision is progressing as expected. Early detection and treatment of certain conditions at this stage of development are essential for keeping your child’s vision and eye health on track, and can help prevent complications as they grow up.

Can I use Ortho-K lenses if I have dry eye syndrome?

While kids may wear glasses from as early as a few months of age, most kids who wear glasses tend to get them between the ages of 6 and 12. The three main conditions for which they wear eyeglasses are myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism.
