Due to the extensive reach of pediatric eye and vision care special training is necessary to adequately diagnose and treat the anomalies of pediatric eye and visual function. The following list details some of the more common categories of anomalies in pediatric eye & vision care.
Primary Ocular Diseases
Systemic Ocular Diseases
Ocular Motility Disorders
Vision Development Anomalies
Psychogenic Visual Disturbances
Vision Related Educational Dysfunctions
Neuro-Vision Evaluation in Pediatric Eye/Vision Care
A major problem with in pediatric eye care is the development of a child's visual system and the demands made upon it in the ever increasing competitive school environment. For a student to effectively compete in school and learning actvities their visual system should be in prime functional condition. This generally means that visual functions beyond the basic evaluation for clinical eye disease, and visual acuity must be evaluated.
Generally in a basic eye examination only eye disease and visual acuity is evaluated, and many children with other functional and school performance problems get a clean bill of ocular health and acuity but may still be visually deficient because they have not had all of the necessary elements of visual performance evaluated.
Many times classroom teachers will notice that school performance, reading difficulties, and deficient pycho-perceptual visual function persists in children who have supposedly had their eyes examined with given a clean report of Ocular-Vision function. Teachers are most important in detailing and recognizing such problems and should always be properly engaged in a Child's Ocular-Vision care if school performance is at question.
It is therefore most important that school age children be properly and fully evaluated. Parents should question the examining practitioner as to whether their examination specifically covers a detailed evaluation of the areas of Binocularity, Fusional and Accommodative disorders, and Pyscho-Perceptual Vision functions.
The in-depth evaluation of these functions will require additional evaluations beyond a general eye examination, and in our offices patients needing this type of evaluation are scheduled for a Neuro-Vision Evaluation.
