Pediatric Eye Care

Children’s Vision

Dr. Teles’ success with the pediatric vision and eye examinations is related to understanding that each child is a unique individual at his or her own level of behavior.

Additionally, a proper examination environment with patience makes the visit go smoothly and with the maximum efficiency. Movies, non-letter charts and other pre-school friendly tests are used to assess vision with young toddlers.

Children at nearly any age can usually be examined thoroughly. The examination is tailored to the child on their level. For the very young and non-communicative, they do not even have to read letters or even respond to questions.

Low Vision

Low Vision

Low vision is sometimes called “print handicapped vision.”

Low vision is partial vision loss due to one or more eye diseases. Macular degeneration, Glaucoma, and Diabetes are among the most common diseases that cause loss of ability to see detail.

The retina in the back of the eye is like film in a camera. Unlike a camera, however, detail vision in the eye is picked up only in a small center spot of the retina called the macula. It is this small spot that is affected.

Fortunately there are hundreds of devices ranging from special magnifying eyeglasses to new compact closed circuit television systems. These devices can help greatly in restoring independence in one’s daily routine with driving, reading and social interaction.

There are even special “bioptic” low vision driving glasses available. Dr. Teles has over 30 years experience with low vision. Contact Looking Glass Optical for a free initial low vision consultation.

Vision Therapy

Vision Therapy

Various learning problems, computer eyestrain, reading comprehension, sports depth perception, “ADD” and “ADHD” can be influenced by poor eye coordination and/or visual motor skill.

Vision therapy is a program of eye exercises that can enhance the quality of visual performance in school, the work place and on the playground.

  1. School: Reading skills and improvement in handwriting and copying ability skill when diagnosis of eye coordination and/or eye-hand coordination is made. Certain forms of “Dyslexic” reading problems can be helped with vision therapy and a new breakthrough with special COLOR lenses.
  2. Control and prevention of myopia (nearsightedness):Preventing and sometimes reversing myopia or nearsightedness is now possible with vision therapy when slow change of focusing is diagnosed.
  3. Sports Vision: Exercises in eye hand coordination, speed of vision, peripheral vision reaction time, help to enhance improvement in sports.

Frequently, vision therapy services are reimbursable by medical insurance. (See the section on Insurance)
