Infants & Special Needs

Vision develops rapidly after birth. Any undetected vision problem can have a significant impact on infant and childhood development.  It is driven by a developmental sequence orchestrated by a series of primitive reflexes and sensory motor experience. By 6 months of age the two eyes should be coordinated together. The earlier a problem is detected and treated, the less likely it is that other areas of development will be affected.

We will assess eye teaming, eye positioning, level of eyesight, check for abnormal amounts of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, assess structural eye health. Measurements are based on non-verbal techniques, using: pediatric tests, pictures, lights and lenses.
