Do you remember your first pair of glasses? ๐Ÿ‘“๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป

Tips to help your child getting use to their glasses:

โœ”๏ธDay 1: Wear for 1 hr
โœ”๏ธDay 2: Wear for 2 hrs
โœ”๏ธDay 3: Wear for 3 hrs
โœ”๏ธAnd so on…

Gradual increase in wear time can help your child get use to having something on their face. Once they realize everything looks clearer…they will likely want to have the glasses on all the time and many parents tell us they have a hard time making their kids take them off! ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Picking your first ๐Ÿ‘“ should be fun! Check out our new kids collection at our San Gabriel Optometry! ๐ŸŽŠ

Vision Therapy Works

“This would not have been as easy to do had it not been for the vision therapy! Dr. Cao discerned his vision deficits…and taught him that he could transform his perception of the world. We are forever grateful to Dr. Caoโ€

This photo made our day seeing our patientโ€™s impressive eye-hand-body coordination! Special thanks to mom for sharing๐ŸŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Is your child clumsy, avoids sports or have difficulty catching a ball? This might be due to a visual problem or maybe not!

Contact us to schedule an evaluation with our Developmental Optometrist to rule out if any of your concerns about your child may be due to a underlying vision condition. We love to see how we can help.

What is considered too much ipad time?

image0

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), for children under 5 years of age minimal screen time is recommended.

Infants to 1 yo: Screen time is not recommended
2 to 4 year old: Maximum 1 hour of screen time, although less time is recommended

With an increase in ipad and computer use, especially during distance learning, we are starting to see an increase in nearsightedness and need for glasses at a young age. Make an appointment with our kids friendly optometrist today for options to help your child. Early intervention is key!
