Pediatric Eye Services We Offer
According to the American Optometric Association, children should have their first eye exam complete by the time they are four years old. If they are having symptoms that indicate their sight may be impaired, children should have their first exam even earlier.
Some children may be cautious or even scared during typical pediatric eye exams. The kid-friendly instruments are used at our office to get binocular vision, test eye coordination, and collect data on your child's visual health eliminate this concern.
We prescribe glasses, but only when they are necessary for your child. We offer high quality frames and lenses that are durable enough to withstand whatever a child may do to them. We have a huge selection of frames and sunglasses for children.
We also offer contact lenses for children and teenagers. Our eye doctor can teach your child or teenager how to safely handle their contact lenses they don’t have trouble with them.
Why Are Pediatric Eye Exams Important?
Yearly pediatric eye exams are important since they can ensure your child's eyes are healthy and detect any vision issues early on that your child may be having. Astigmatism, farsightedness, and nearsightedness (myopia), can affect children as early as preschool. These eye conditions can be corrected and treated when caught early enough during an exam.
