Creating A Perfect Smile

Hi there, I'm Caylee Curtis. After going through orthodontic therapy during childhood, I started paying close attention how a nice smile can increase beauty. With appearance improvements, comes a huge confidence boost that can also bolster your looks. Upon making that discovery, I started researching all of the different ways people can create a gorgeous smile. As it turns out, dentists play a huge role creating a gorgeous smile by fixing tooth and jaw alignment issues. Dentists may recommend that their patients obtain braces, retainers or veneers that improve tooth placement or color. I will use this site to share information about these procedures and more. I hope to help you decide if these procedures are worth your time and money or if you should find a different option for your situation. Please visit often and check out my content to learn more information.

Is It Time To Take Your Kid To The Eye Doctor?

When it comes to kids, you just never know what to expect. One thing that many parents struggle to identify is when their little ones are having a tough time seeing clearly. Here, you'll find a few things to consider discussing with the pediatric eye care center professionals during your child's next visit. 

Headaches and Eye Pain           

Does your kid complain of headaches often? Headaches can be a severe symptom of needing corrective lenses. Try keeping a journal that includes dates, times and activities that your child was taking part in when the headache or eye pain started. This might help to identify what's contributing to the headaches and eye pain and help come up with a good treatment plan to correct it.

Screen Time

Everyone knows that it's recommended to limit the time that little ones spend looking at screens – televisions, computers, tablets and cell phones are all typically found in many homes. How much time do you allow your little one to spend playing games and watching videos on these gadgets? If your little one spends a lot of time working with screens, it might be a good time to discuss your child getting glasses with special blue-light filtering lenses.

These blue-light filtering lenses can be put in just about any frame –they don't have to be corrective lenses – no prescription is needed. The lenses filter out the harmful blue-light that can cause so much eye strain and headaches. If your child wears these glasses during screen time, the light will not have as harsh of an impact and there will be less chance of headaches and eye pain.

Sunglasses

The sun is also hard on the eyes. Does your kid have a good pair of sunglasses that actually filter out the harsh UV rays? Those cheap little shades that you picked up at the bargain store may not offer any protection against the rays – they just look cute and make things appear darker. If your kid needs a prescription lens, it's time to discuss transition lenses or a second pair of glasses with tinted lenses.

Always keep up with the yearly eye exams – it's hard enough being a parent without having to guess whether or not your kids' eyes are healthy and that they can see as clearly as they should. Hopefully, the above information will help prepare you and your little one for a good, productive appointment at the pediatric eye care center.
