Pediatric Eye Care: Why Is It Important?

  • Concerned that your child's eyesight may be hindering their development?
  • Does your child's eyes appear misaligned?

Studies show that up to 10% of young children have vision problems. However, kids generally aren't aware there's an issue, and don't complain about their eyes. It is therefore crucial to detect the first signs of vision problems before complications arise.

Give them the clear vision and healthy eyes they deserve by visiting our Lions Head Condos pediatric eye doctor at Vision 1st Nashville.

4 Signs Your Child May Have a Vision Problem

  • Trouble seeing electronic screens

    Your child sits very close, tilts their head or squints to better see TVs, computer screens and other electronic screens.

  • Difficulty reading or following moving objects

    Your child often loses their place while reading, or can’t track a ball as it moves when playing sports.

  • Headaches & eye strain

    Your child complains of tired eyes or headaches after performing tasks that are visually intensive, such as reading or writing.

  • Missed milestones

    Your child may miss milestones such as crawling and walking, or show signs of poor depth perception.

For your child to successfully engage in sports and achieve their academic potential, they need to have healthy eyes and clear vision. The experienced and caring children's eye doctors at Vision 1st Nashville will carefully examine their eyes and provide guidance to ensure your child’s healthy vision.


Pediatric Eye Care FAQs

How do you take care of kids
  • Make sure they wear sunglasses and a hat to protect their eyes from dangerous UV rays when outside.
  • Increase the time they spend outdoors. 
  • Make sure they eat their fruits and veggies. Fruits and veggies high in lutein and zeaxanthin have been found to protect eyes from free radical damage.
  • Schedule regular pediatric eye exams. Detecting and treating eye conditions and diseases commonly found in children, such as strabismus and amblyopia, can help prevent unnecessary struggles and vision problems later in life. The pediatric eye doctor will also check your child’s vision for refractive errors and visual skill deficiencies that might hinder your child’s development.

I was so impressed with Dr. Hoover. He really took the time to explain my exam and to answer all of ... my questions. He was knowledgeable & patient, and he made me feel at ease. I also had a very easy time making my appointment, was seen right away, and was met by friendly staff at each step of the process. I will be coming back!!

I had a fabulous experience with Vision 1st after trying them coming from another provider that left... a lot to be desired. Dr Hoover was thorough and explained his process really well. The staff went out of their way to make my current glasses as workable as possible while I waited for my new set. I highly recommend these guys!

I am very happy with Vision 1st. For some reason, my insurance network mainly covers big vision chai... ns with poor reviews. Then, I found this place. Dr. Hoover is extremely knowledgeable and a self-proclaimed eye nerd. All the staff were friendly and personable. They did not keep me waiting. I have never had vision problems, but I am looking forward to getting my first pair of glasses. The assistant helped me choose between about 10 options covered by my insurance. I know they will stand behind them and adjust them to my liking. My only complaint is that it's hard to get into the shopping plaza due to traffic.

I needed an emergency repair for eyeglasses another eyeglass store wouldn't and couldn't fix. These ... guys fixed them on the spot and didn't charge me even though I confessed I didn't buy the glasses there! These folks restored some of my faith in humanity. You should give them a chance!

Dr. Ferro is so friendly and kind, I felt very comfortable here and that my eye exam was very thorou... gh. I expressed my anxiety with some of the eye tests they perform and the nurse went slowly with me and made it quick and painless. After my visit Dr. Ferro even sent me a handwritten thank you card! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for an ophthalmologist in Nashville, actually looking forward to my next eye exam for the first time!
