Q&A with Dr. B.

Dr. Seth Bachelier Answers Your Eyecare Questions

What are some of the warning signs to look out for to identify a possible vision problem in children?

Kids with vision issues can exhibit a lot of different symptoms in school. The most common are headaches and eye strain. If a child doesn’t see well, their eye muscles start working to bring material into focus. If kids are forced to use those muscles all day long to see, headaches can certainly result. Typically, if elementary school children are experiencing some form of headaches, it’s a strong bet that their eyes are involved. Along with headaches, kids can get dizzy, nauseous and have balance issues when their eyes are working too hard. Some other common visual symptoms with children would be squinting, excessive eye rubbing or blinking and moving really close to objects to see them. Any and all of these factors would be a good reason to have a thorough eye examination.

COVID-19 Update

We want to update you on our plan of action related to the COVID-19 virus outbreak. Based on the recommendation from the CDC, we are suspending all routine eye care until they advise otherwise. However, we will be available for urgent and emergent care as needed (ie, eye infections, injuries or sudden onset vision loss or change).

All patients with scheduled visits will be contacted by our staff to reschedule. In order to help the schedule management run smoothly, we ask that you wait to be contacted by our team for rescheduling. We don’t know how long this suspension will last, as the current state of COVID-19 is evolving daily.

For those affected by this schedule suspension, if you are without glasses or contacts, we will work with you individually to keep you supplied with prescriptions. If you need pharmacy prescriptions refilled, please let us know as well.

**Further, for our contact lens patients, we recommend you consider discontinuing contact lens wear if you exhibit flu-like or respiratory illness symptoms, as the eye surface and tears can be a source of exposure and spread to others.**

In addition, we will be available for glasses and contact lens pick up by appointment. Please call the office when you arrive, and a staff member will deliver your purchase directly to your vehicle. On a limited basis, we will provide glasses repairs and adjustments.

We ask that all patients who exhibit flu-like or respiratory illness symptoms, or have had a fever in the last two weeks to refrain from visiting the office until you are symptom-free for two weeks. If you have traveled internationally or to CA, WA or NY in the last 30 days again we ask that you refrain from visiting the office for two weeks.

If an in-person visit proves necessary, we ask that only the patient come into the office unless personal assistance is required. All guests will be asked to remain in your vehicle. One parent or guardian may accompany a minor patient.

In the midst of this uncertainty, we ask for your understanding of these limitations as the health and well being of our team, patients and community is of the utmost importance.

Be well and stay healthy.
