Impaired vision can affect a child's learning as well as his or her physical development. Your child's first eye examination should be before entering school, or sooner if you detect a problem. Modern technology makes it possible to examine a young child even if he or she cannot identify letters or answer questions. The earlier a vision condition is detected, the better the chance of correction.
Important issues for a parent to note are eye turns, covering/closing one eye, head tilt, tendency to blink and/or rub eyes often, severe sensitivity to light, short attention span, and the tendency to stay in one place when playing. Proper prescription and quality lenses are extremely important to protect your child's eyes and vision. Dr. Jacobsen will discuss lens options that will best benefit and protect your child's eye health and vision.
Annual eye and vision examinations are an important part of preventive health care. Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms. As a result, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems are important for maintaining good vision and eye health, and when possible, preventing vision loss.
Family Eye Care is dedicated to providing outstanding, comprehensive eye care for all our patients. Whether you need treatment for an eye problem, preventative care, or consultation regarding LASIK or cosmetic procedures, Dr. Alma Jacobsen is ready to help you.

Visual decline is common in the older adult. However, many ocular disorders do not exhibit any visual symptoms until they enter their later stages. Although some disorders cannot be cured, there are ways to delay the onset or progression of many diseases. That is why it is so important to have an eye exam at least once a year! This patient aid outlines the symptoms, risk factors, prevention, and treatment options for cataract, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration—three very common disorders that affect the vision of older adults.
