My ds, 6, keeps saying....

Recommended Posts

"Things look really far away," or "Things look really tiny all of a sudden."


He says it's not all the time, but it is happening more frequently. This has been going on for...not sure exactly, but longer than 2 weeks, anyway.


Anyone here have a child who's had a similar experience? Should I take him to the pediatrician? The eye doctor?


Actually, even as I type, I think I'll call his eye doctor tomorrow. But I am still curious whether anyone here has had a child with this kind of vision problem.

Reminds me when my daughter said that life looked fuzzy and not like it does in the picture books... She happened to say this at the very time a large beam of light was passing through the room and lots of dust was seem flickering in the room, so I shrugged it off. Found out later that she definitely needed glasses.


Hope all goes well for your little one!

I'd take him to an optometrist first, and if all appears normal, even consider a neurologist. Sudden changes in vision can be symptoms of a more serious problem. Not trying to be scary here, it could also be something like a migraine without the headache. It does warrant looking into carefully though.
