Children are unable to distinguish between clear and unclear vision. Even if your child can read the smallest letters on an eye chart, there may still be hidden problems. School vision tests briefly screen vision usually only at a distance. The majority of school tasks require that a child be able to focus and see clearly up close to read and write.
That’s why we recommend a comprehensive eye examination for every child beginning at age 6 to 12 months, and sooner if problems are suspected. A child’s vision exam includes many important tests.
Your children will feel comfortable in their own waiting area and designated exam rooms. Our optical department has many frame styles especially for children. If your child would benefit from contact lenses, this service is also available.
