If you are a parent, you may be wondering whether your child has trouble seeing properly or when you should consider scheduling their first eye exam. Complete eye exams for children are extremely important. Experts suggest that around 5 to 10% of preschoolers and 25% of children have vision problems, which means that the sooner these problems can be addressed, the better! If left untreated, childhood vision issues can worsen with age and result in irreversible vision loss or more severe health issues once they reach adulthood.
At the start of your child's eye exam at National Eye & Ear, Dr. Reichardt will perform a full examination of your child's eyes to detect and diagnose any possible vision problems.
At the start of your child's appointment, it will be important to inform Dr. Reichardt about your child's medical history. Be sure to let her know about your child's medical problems, allergies or any medications they might be taking.
Dr. Reichardt will also need to know about your child's vision history. This includes mentioning whether they have ever had any previous ocular diagnoses or treatments (such as eyeglasses, contact lens prescriptions or surgeries), as well as if your child has any family history of vision problems such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), strabismus (misaligned eyes) or amblyopia (lazy eye).
Dr. Reichardt is also one of the leading eye care practitioners specializing in treating glaucoma in the Tucson area. Glaucoma is a condition caused by excessive fluid buildup in the front of the eye, which places pressure on the optic nerve and can lead to blindness if untreated.
While rare, glaucoma can also develop in children. Dr. Reichardt has the right expertise to treat pediatric glaucoma so that it does not worsen as children get older.
