Eye Challenges

How To Help Children And Youth With Eye Challenges

Blurry Vision; Straining; Double Vision; Squints; Eyes Itchy Or Red After Reading Or Looking At Small Things; Many Infections; Ineffective Vision/Needs Glasses; Eyes Do Not Work Together--Crossed Or Wandering

When you learn of any of these challenges, make sure you quickly get the child or youth to a medical doctor. There could be many complications related to these symptoms. Then get an optometric examination. Follow the advice given about which of the practices below might be of some assistance. You may have to hunt around to get doctors and optometrists who know about these practices. Unchecked, challenges with the eyes can severely effect learning, living, and success in later life. Since eyes are connected directly or indirectly to most parts of the brain, almost all of the child’s or youth’s activities are affected negatively. Without help these challenges can make learning and living very difficult. Reading and remembering what is read can also be affected. Many eye challenges are closely related to disorganization in the brain. Eye challenges can be due to and complicated by: genetics; illnesses and fevers; physical, social or emotional trauma; falls and injuries to the spine, face and head; exposure to environmental pollutants; stress; allergies; nutritional imbalances.
