Pediatric Examinations

Taking your child for a comprehensive eye exam at an early age, and then maintaining the recommended eye care schedule as they are growing up, is the very best way that you can ensure your child’s vision development and make certain that they acquire the visual skills they need to fully participate in all of their activities. According to guidelines established by the American Optometric Association, a child should receive an eye exam at the ages of 6 months, 3 years, before kindergarten, and then once every two years. However, in the presence of certain risk factors or diagnosed vision issues, more frequent exams may be recommended. Furthermore, children who are wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses should be checked annually.

We are skilled and experienced providers of comprehensive vision care for children and will do our very best to make sure that their eyes are strong and healthy as they grow. Our specialized pediatric eye care services include child-friendly and age appropriate exams to check visual acuity, eye tracking, and focusing skills, as well as problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, lazy eye (amblyopia), crossed eyes, dyslexia, a color blindness, disease or medical conditions. Depending on the findings at your child’s eye exam visit, eyeglasses, vision therapy, or additional procedures will be prescribed as needed.
