Up to 80% of the learning that happens in childhood happens through the visual system, so it is extremely important that we ensure that your child’s eyes are healthy and that he or she is seeing as clearly as possible.Children should get a comprehensive eye exam at the age of six months. Your child’s next eye exam should occur at age three, and again before he or she enters kindergarten. If vision correction is necessary, then eye exams should occur every year to ensure optimal vision.
Our optometry team is highly trained and experienced in pediatric vision care, so you know your loved one is in good hands. We offer a number of different services, including:
You will accompany your child through the entire exam, which will consist of several tests designed to detect any potential vision problems or eye health issues. The tests are gentle, and will all be explained to you as necessary so you are comfortable with the process. Our ophthalmologists are here to ensure you get the information you need about your child’s eye health and vision needs.
Pediatric eye exams from an optometrist are important not only to detect the need for vision correction – they are also vital for spotting the early signs of eye disease. While the risks of eye disease are greater as people age, sometimes children do suffer from eye diseases. Getting your child’s eye’s examined lets us look for any problems, and gives us the opportunity to treat those problems early on when treatment is most effective.
Plenty of children need vision correction, and it is best for those children to get eyeglasses sooner rather than later. Clear vision is a necessity to live a full and healthy life, to do well in school and for safety. An optometrist can determine if your child needs a vision prescription, and we can take you through the entire vision correction process – getting a prescription, getting glasses (or contacts), and updating the prescription as necessary.
Eyes First Vision Center is a great resource for a wide selection of frames, lenses and contact lenses. We can determine what options are best for your child’s lifestyle and your budget. There are a lot of options available – which can be a little overwhelming. But don’t worry, we have you covered. Our optometry team is here to answer your questions, be your guide and ensure your child gets the perfect vision correction options.
It is our goal to help your child enjoy clear vision for a lifetime. We are your partner in keeping your child’s eyes healthy, from infancy through adulthood. Whatever age your child happens to be, we are ready and waiting to schedule an eye exam. Please contact our team at your earliest convenience to get started. Remember, we are here for you!
