Eye Conditions

Finding and treating eye diseases early may cure the disease – or slow the vision loss.

For children, the most important steps for preventing eye disease are:

  • Routine eye exams

  • Screening tests

  • Preventing eye trauma

Eye trauma means an injury to the eye. Eye trauma is an important cause of vision loss in children. As a parent, you can help your child avoid eye trauma by having him or her use safety equipment during sports and recreational activities.

Listed below are some common eye conditions in children.
