From birth, babies begin exploring their new world with their eyes. Even before they learn to crawl their eyes are providing information and stimulation that is important for their development. Healthy eyes and the best vision possible play a critical role in how infants learn to see. Because they cannot communicate, visions issues in infants can easily go undetected and can cause developmental delays. It is important to detect conditions early with a vision exam- yes- even for babies!
Dr. Lambart is a InfantSEE provider. infactSEE, a public health program, managed by Optometry Cares® -The AOA Foundation, is designed to ensure that eye and vision care becomes an essential part of infant wellness care to improve a child’s quality of life.

Struggling to see up close?
For those a little older, you may know that around age 40 it can get a little tougher to focus on nearby objects. This is due to a condition called presbyopia- a natural, often annoying part of aging. Presbyopia usually becomes noticeable in your early to mid-40s and continues to worsen until around age 65. It is this condition that results in folks being introduced to multifocal lenses (often referred to as bifocals). You doctor will make recommendations based on your exam so that your eyewear expert will be able to ascertain which lenses will work best for you.
A little later in life, cataracts may become an issue to discuss with your eye doctor. A cataract is a dense, cloudy area that forms in the lens of the eye. A cataract begins when proteins in the eye form clumps that prevent the lens from sending clear images to the retina. The cataract develops slowly and eventually interferes with your vision. You might end up with cataracts in both eyes, but they usually don’t form at the same time. Cataracts are common in older people. Over half of people in the United States have cataracts or have undergone cataract surgery by the time they’re 80 years old. Cataracts are surgically removed in a simple, one-day procedure but require several follow up visits before you receive a final prescription for new glasses. Southwest Vision Center works closely with local ophthalmologists in order to provide a caring and informative experience in taking care of your cataract needs.
