Signs of Eye and Vision Problems in Infants

Infant Eyesight

Despite nine months of growth in utero, babies are not born with fully developed eyes and vision – just like they can’t walk or talk yet. Over the first few months of life, their visual systems continue to progress, stimulated by their surroundings.

Babies will develop the ability to track objects, focus their eyes, and move them like a team. Their visual acuity will improve and they will gradually be able to see more colors. They will also form the neural connections that will allow them to process what they see, to understand and interact with the world around them.

Healthy eyes and good vision are necessary for proper and timely progress; ocular or visual problems can lead to developmental delays.

So how do you know if your infant is developing normally? What can you do to ensure your baby’s eye health and vision are on track? While infant eye problems are not common, here are some steps you can take to ensure your child’s eyes are healthy.

#1 Schedule a six month check-up with Dr. Bladh.

It is recommended to get the first professional comprehensive eye and vision exam for your child between six and 12 months of age. Dr. Bladh is our Pediatric Optometrist in the office and has a lot of experience with these exams (he has 12 grandkids of his own).

Dr. Bladh will check for the following skills at the 6-month checkup:

  • Visual acuity (nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism)
  • Eye muscle and movement capabilities
  • Eye health

If you have any concerns prior to six months, don’t hesitate to take your baby for an exam earlier.

#2 Engage in visually stimulating play.

Incorporating visually stimulating play for your child will help develop visual processes like eye tracking and eye teaming.

A baby’s initial focusing distance is 20-30 cm, so to nurture healthy vision skills, keep high contrast “reach and touch” toys within this distance. Alternate right and left sides with each feeding, and provide toys that encourage tracking of moving objects to foster eye-hand coordination and depth perception.

Pediatricians in North America recommend that NO screen time be allowed under the age of 2, as many forms of development may be delayed from premature use of digital devices.

#3 Be alert to eye and vision problems.

Keep an eye out for indications of an eye health problem, and contact our office to discuss any concerns you may have. Some symptoms to pay attention to include:

  • Red eyes or eyelids, which may or may not be accompanied by discharge and crusty lids. This may indicate an eye infection that can be very contagious and may require medication.
  • Excessive eye watering or tearing. This may be caused by a problem with the tear ducts, such as a blockage.
  • Extreme light sensitivity. While some light sensitivity is normal, significant sensitivity to light can be a sign of disease or elevated eye pressure.
  • Eye “jiggling” or bouncing. This suggests a problem with the muscle control of the eyes.
  • Eye turn. Whether it is an eye that seems to cross in or a “lazy eye” that turns out, this is often associated with a refractive error or eye muscle issues that could require treatment such as eyeglasses, vision therapy, patching or surgery.
  • White pupil. This can be a sign of a number of seious diseases. If you see this have it checked out immediately.

Since your infant’s eyes are still maturing, any issues that are found can likely be corrected with proper care and treatment. The important thing is to call Dr. Bladh OD at 909.861.3737 to schedule your child’s exam and start regular checks of the health of your child’s eyes to ensure proper learning and development throughout infancy and beyond. See you at the office!

PEDIATRIC OPTOMETRY IS VITAL FOR YOUR CHILD’S HEALTH

 

Patients often ask me “When should my child have their first pediatric eye examination?” The answer surprises many when I tell them that the American Optometric Association recommends the first eye examination between 6 and 12 months of age. Any child considered “at risk” should be evaluated before 6 months. At risk is any child who:

If you’ve never seen a true pediatric eye examination, you are in for a treat. It is the most fun I have during my day. I get to break out all of the toys and use all the knowledge gained throughout the years of practicing. We assess more than you can imagine. Ocular health, refractive error, eye turns, and since we are a developmental optometric practice we also assess any developmental delays. I can’t stress how important it is to have your child in for their exam, of course this is what I do for a living. Call today and make an appointment 909.861.3737
