Tips For Preparing Your Child for the Eye Exam

Arrive early to complete forms before the appointment to prevent restlessness. Engage their cooperation by focusing on fun aspects like testing different lenses. Reward their participation with praise. Maintaining a relaxed attitude throughout will ensure the best experience.

Infant Eye Exams (Birth-24 Months)

At six months, we assess focusing, tracking, and eye teaming. Identifying issues like misalignment early prevents problems. Premature babies need more frequent monitoring.

Preschool Vision Screenings (Ages 2-5)

 

We check for nearsightedness, astigmatism, and disorders like amblyopia. Spotting conditions early boosts treatment efficacy, ensuring solid visual foundations.

Our Pediatric Eye Care Services Include:

Comprehensive Eye Exams (Ages 6-18)

We perform in-depth exams to detect and manage vision problems, considering each child's developmental needs.

Early Detection and Management of Eye Conditions

We identify and treat conditions like strabismus, myopia, and other common childhood eye issues.

Specialized Care for Complex Eye Conditions 

Our expertise extends to managing complex cases such as keratoconus, severe dry eyes, or post-surgical vision changes in children.

Customized Pediatric Eye Care Treatment Plans

Depending on the diagnosis, we may recommend eyeglasses, contact lenses, vision therapy, or other treatments tailored to your child's needs.

Our approach is patient-centered, ensuring that each child receives care that supports their visual health and overall well-being.
