We believe that children have unique visual needs that may or may not include a prescription for eyeglasses. A comprehensive pediatric examination begins with analyzing the basics, including acuity (clearness of vision), refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism), binocular function (visual skills), and an assessment of eye health.
We evaluate your child's capabilities in the areas of eye focusing, eye teaming and eye tracking with the understanding that stress and fatigue can impact a child's performance over the course of the school day. Since 80% of learning comes through a child's visual system, we carefully consider symptoms such as blurred vision, double vision, eye strain/fatigue, loss of place, and headaches.
Your child's eye exam will conclude with a specific diagnosis, a detailed treatment plan, a follow up strategy and a report regarding the implications of any visual dysfunction. Through a comprehensive eye exam, our doctors help our pediatric patients maximize their potential in school, in sports, and in life.
