Common Conditions

Glasses could help.

Kids Corner - Common Conditions - Amblyopia
MYOPIA
Kids with myopia (or nearsightedness) have trouble seeing across the room and far away, resulting in blurry vision. We now have a Myopic Control Program with various options to help decrease the fast progression of Myopia in children. See more »
Kids Corner - Common Conditions - Colour Vision Deficiency
HYPEROPIA
Commonly referred to as farsightedness, Hyperopia requires more effort to see clearly up close. It may cause headaches fatigue, blurred vision, aching or burning eyes and reduced concentration and reading ability.
Kids Corner - Common Conditions - Strabismus
ASTIGMATISM
Astigmatism is a refractive error where vision is blurred or distorted at all distances. It may be present along with Hyperopia or Myopia and can cause headaches and eyestrain, especially in high-concentration situations.

STRABISMUS
Commonly referred to as “crossed or wandering eye”, Strabismus is when one or both eyes turn in, out, up or down. It may cause double vision or poor depth perception and kids might compensate by turning or tilting their heads or closing one eye.
Kids Corner - Common Conditions - Eye Coordination Disorder
AMBLYOPIA
Better known as “lazy eye”, Amblyopia is where one or both eyes are not able to see normally even with glasses. It is caused by Strabismus or high refractive error that is not identified and treated at a young age. Treatment is most effective at a young age but it is still available to older children, teens and adults.
Kids Corner - Common Conditions - Eye Tracking Disorder
EYE COORDINATION DISORDER
This is a weakness in eye alignment and depth perception. Eye Coordination Disorder may cause double vision, headaches and eye and body fatigue. It requires extra effort for demanding visual activities (writing, copying, reading…) and can affect behaviour in the classroom (inattention, avoidance, opposition or hyperactivity).

ACCOMMODATION DISORDER (FOCUSING)
Here there is a weakness in changing focus between distances or in holding focus on near tasks. Accommodation disorder causes blurred close vision while reading or blurred vision when looking away after reading. It can lead to headaches, fatigue and cause concentration issues.
Kids Corner - Common Conditions - Astigmatism
EYE TRACKING DISORDER
Kids with Eye Tracking Disorder have inefficient eye movements (slow pursuits or following movements, or rapid eye movement between fixation points). They may move their head excessively, skip lines and lose their place when reading. It can also cause problems with handwriting, eye-hand coordination and copying. It may also cause poor coordination for sports.
