Vision problems may occur at any age. Children in school need to have their vision corrected to help ensure they are able to function at the highest level. Vision issues may lead to impaired learning and difficulty in school. Our doctors tailor their exam procedures and time to accommodate testing for your child. Additionally we are happy to provide your school with any required examination reports.
Young children’s exams include testing for:
Myopia or nearsightedness
Hyperopia or farsightedness
Astigmatism which smears vision at all distances
Lazy eye and other binocular vision disorders
Accommodation or the eye’s focusing ability
Ocular disease that may impact the health of the eye. We’ve invested in technology to ensure your child gets the best care.
Current trends and concerns for children involve a large effort to prevent progressive nearsightedness. The prevalence and severity of nearsightedness in school age children have climbed year over year. Click here to learn more about nearsightedness from our partner:
