FAQs

Where do most eye injuries occur?

An eye injury can occur at any time, in any place. Adequate prevention is important and could probably eliminate most eye injuries. Close to 50% of injuries occur in sports and recreational activities--more often in children and teens than any other age group.

Why does a child need glasses?

Children may need glasses for several reasons—some of which are different than for adults. Because a child’s vision system is growing and developing, especially during the first 5-6 years of life, glasses may play an important role in insuring normal vision development.

How is strabismus treated?

The goals of strabismus treatment are to improve eye alignment and mobility, thus allowing the eyes to work together better. Different kinds of strabismus require different treatments – these include glasses, exercises, prisms, eye muscle surgery, and eye muscle injection. Pediatric ophthalmologists have special training and interest in applying the best treatment for each individual patient.
