Myopia in kids tends to progress or get worse throughout childhood, and higher levels of myopia are associated with higher eye disease risks in adulthood. If your child already wears glasses, you can do something to stop their vision worsening.

Yes, it’s possible! Orthokeratology lenses are custom made contact lens molds that reshape your cornea while you sleep to correct your prescription! For children who’s eyes are still growing and worsening, these lenses can even slow down how quickly their prescription changes!

Despite being checked at the hospital and at well check visits throughout their first few months, infants born with retinoblastoma aren’t diagnosed with the issue on average until age 2. The result of delaying detection for so long are sight and life threatening. We sat down with Dr. Bryan Shaw, a parent of a child born with retinoblastoma and the creator of the CRADLE App that can help detect leukocoria in a parents’ own photo library of their child. 🔗 in bio to learn more and how optometry can help this major issue of early detection.

The @aaoeye suggests that school-age children get a vision screening every one or two years by a family doctor, pediatrician, school nurse, optometrist or ophthalmologist.

Have you had your child’s eyes 👀 tested lately. The screening children receive in school is just that ‘a screening’ it is not a comprehensive eye examination & it is generally done too late as children in Ireland are starting school a little bit older. Children should have an eye examination between 2&3 years and sooner if parents have any concerns and again before they start school. #kids #school #preschool #teachersofinstagram #eyes #vision #kidsvision #glasses #amblyopia #lazyeye #optician #optometrist #athenry #clifden #galway #galwayireland

Poor eyesight in children is a big concern for every mom. With proper food regimen, we can keep those twinkling eyes safe and healthy. Getting your child addicted to vitamin-rich food lessens the risk of eye diseases.

Never feel bad about advocating for your child.

Whether it's with their doctor, their teacher, or their coach.

And, know that this doctor understands.

You know your child the best. I only get a small 15 minute glimpse into their symptoms and behavior. If you have a feeling that something is wrong - speak up! You are your child's best advocate. But, that should always be measured with acknowledgement of your doctor's training and education. If you don't feel comfortable with a decision, explore it and make sure your doctor can fully explain it to you, so that you are on the same page.

I recently found myself in this position with one of my children in the classroom. Even when the teachers, my husband, and even my own child psychiatrist mother thought nothing was out of the ordinary, I persevered. Because I just had that feeling in my gut. And, I was able to get a diagnosis and a plan for my child. You know your child the best. And, I will always respect that.

Can my grades improve with Vision Therapy?

From our Vision Therapy Series.

Vision therapy is a physical and perceptual treatment that improves eye muscle control, eye-hand and eye-body coordination, and cognitive processing of visual information. This type of therapy focuses on helping you integrate visual information faster and more effectively.

Benefits of vision therapy include: ·Rehabilitation after brain injury such as stroke
· Improvements in daily tasks such as driving
· Faster and more accurate visual skills to enhance sports performance
·Improved visual skills to improve reading and learning

As many as 1 in 5 children and adults have problems with visual skills such as eye tracking and visual perception. These types of problems can interfere with work, school, and sports performance.

Vision Therapy can treat many problems including: · Amblyopia, commonly referred to as lazy eye
· Strabismus, or misaligned eyes
· Visual impairments after brain injuries (such as trauma or craniotomy)
· Computer vision syndrome (headaches, eye strain, decreased productivity)

Vision therapy also helps athletes perform better with faster and more accurate visual motor skills.

Dr. Brisco has improved the lives of her patients for 30 years. ☎️ (323) 954-5800 www.HollywoodVision.com

“Doctor Auntie?”, asked my sweet patient. In Hawaii, everyone is Auntie or Uncle. It’s common in Indian culture also to call close friends of your parents ‘uncle’ or ‘auntie’. But, here in Hawaii, it’s ubiquitous. And I love it!

It means that I’m not just their doctor. For some of my patients, who I see every few months, I’m a part of their lives. The tradition of calling someone auntie means that even if we aren’t related by blood, we are related by community. It means that their parents trust me to take care of their child. Kids who are patients, often run up to me at the grocery store or school carnival, and then a sense of befuddlement crosses their face, as they try to figure out what to call me “Doctor” or “Auntie”.
.
The title of Auntie connotes a sense of connection, a sense of responsibility for our young ones. It’s the embodiment of why I do what I do. Caring for children’s eyes - whether through glasses, patching, or surgery - it is a huge responsibility and honor.

And, I’m so lucky to be able to do this here in my adopted community of Hawaii. So call me Doctor. Call me Doctor Auntie. Or Auntie Doctor (as some have said). All the same to me, it means I’ve found where I need to be.

Let’s talk about vision screenings versus eye exams! In a 2019 survey of employed Americans with vision benefits conducted by @transitionspro the numbers show Americans have A LOT of confusion about the difference between the two. 🌟50% of employees surveyed think that online vision screenings that provide a prescription are a suitable replacement for in-office eye exams. Millennials were the most likely to agree (57%)—compared to half of Gen Z, Gen X and 36% of Boomers. 🌟 WHAT CAN WE DO??
.
➡️ Post about the difference between a screening and an exam on your office or doctor social media accounts! .
➡️ Make a video or blog post explaining the difference on your office website .
➡️Bring it up in the exam room! Educate especially younger patients (under 40 are most at risk of being misinformed per this survey) about the difference of what you do versus an online screening and emphasize the health value of being seen for annual eye exams above and beyond their glasses/contact lens prescription. .
➡️ Speak out when you see dangerous and misinformative ads or social media posts from companies touting online prescription services as “exams”! As doctors we need to call out misinformation when we see it and be advocates for patient health. We took the oath to put patients first when we became optometry or medical school students, and we shouldn’t stand by when online companies that profit off misinformation spread misleading ads that put patients’ health at risk. Optometry AND Ophthalmology should stand together on this front! .
