Pediatric Eye Care
We work with children to identify issues surrounding clearness of vision, nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and visual skills to promote success in school, sports, and life.
Children have unique visual needs. 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 to help maximize a child’s potential in school, sports, and life.
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 optometrists with pediatric training help our young patients maximize their potential in school, in sports, and in life.
