Taking your child for a comprehensive eye exam at an early age, and maintaining regularly scheduled eye care checkups as they are growing up, is the best way to ensure that your child's vision development reaches its full potential and to make certain that your child acquires the visual skills needed to fully participate in all activities.
My recommendations start with an eye exam at 5 years of age, and then annually. However, in the presence of certain risk factors or diagnosed vision issues, more frequent exams may be recommended. If a child complains, or a parent notices a decrease in vision or the inability to focus on near visual material, more frequent exams are needed.
We are skilled and experienced providers of comprehensive vision care for children and we do our best to make sure that your child's visual needs are met. Depending upon the findings of your child's eye exam visit, eyeglasses, vision therapy, or additional procedures may be recommended.
