When to See a Pediatric Ophthalmologist

Poor vision during childhood can lead to problems with learning and sports activities, and result in issues of self-esteem and socialization. You should consider making an appointment with a pediatric eye specialist if you notice warning signs such as these in your child:

  • One eye wandering out of alignment
  • Closing one eye and focusing only with the other
  • Habitual squinting
  • Frequently looking sideways out of the corner of the eye or up and down
  • Complaints of blurring, double vision, and headaches
  • Rubbing eyes frequently
  • Avoiding vision-dependent activities
