The most important exam your child will take is an eye exam.

Healthy vision is a must to achieve the best performance in school, at play and in life. While preparing your child for the coming school year, have you noticed your them squinting, tilting their head or rubbing their eyes excessively? Have they complained about headaches or eye pain? Have they had difficulty concentrating while at school? In most cases annual exams will turn out to be a ‘well patient’ visit, but oftentimes our doctors will detect an issue requiring attention or correction. Our doctors focus on:

  • Visual acuity
  • Binocular vision (to evaluate how the eyes work together)
  • General eye health
  • Color testing
  • Lazy eye
  • and more

As vision changes quickly at various stages of development, we recommend exams start as early as 6 months old and then should take place annually. An eye exam is truly the most important exam your child will take. All of our doctors provide eye care for children, so give us a call or schedule an appointment online today.
