Athens Eye Associates offers diagnosis, treatment, and management of eye problems and common eyesight conditions in children. Early diagnosis and treatment of childhood eye disorders may help prevent vision problems and/or vision loss in adulthood. Some of the most common eye problems in children are: amblyopia, referred to as “lazy eye”, strabismus, which is “crossed or drifting eyes”, and blurred vision from not realizing glasses are needed. If discovered and addressed early enough, these conditions can be treated and managed effectively. Children should have a comprehensive eye exam by the time they reach school-age and at least once in elementary school to ensure normal visual development. Athens Eye Associates will track and monitor your child’s vision growth in order to detect any changes in vision or abnormalities during development that may need to be treated.
