Meet Elijah!

Elijah’s smile says it all—he is a happy-go-lucky 4-year-old! Elijah’s vision health journey began when he kept telling his mom, “There is something in my eye—it doesn’t feel right.” Elijah’s mom was understandably worried and checked his eye over and over but she could never see or find anything in his eye that would explain what Elijah was feeling.   

Everything started to make sense when Elijah brought home a vision screening referral note from school. He did not pass the vision screening. Elijah’s mom, Shemeika, began the process of finding an eye doctor. “When we were at his eye doctor appointment, Elijah was so confident with his right eye, however, when they tested his left eye, he got very frustrated,” said Shemeika. Elijah was diagnosed with an astigmatism and myopia in both eyes and in his left eye, the eye Elijah said felt like it had something in it, he was diagnosed with amblyopia (lazy eye). Elijah was prescribed glasses and will have follow-up appointments to monitor his amblyopia and prescribe further treatment if needed.  

“I feel better knowing what Elijah’s needs are and what we have to do to help him see the world clearly,” said Shemeika. “I would highly recommend a children’s vision screening to anyone with preschool-aged children. They can catch problems you didn’t know were there and even catch concerns before there is permanent changes in their vision—concerns that could have effects and influence their lives moving forward.”
