Comprehensive Pediatric Eye Examinations
Comprehensive eye exams are essential in the diagnosis and treatment of vision problems, injury and disease. Early detection allows for treatment to begin before the child experiences difficulties in school due to poor vision, or before any permanent damage occurs.
Children's eye exams usually include testing for the following:
- Visual acuity
- Eye tracking
- Focusing skills
- Near vision
- Distance vision
- Color blindness
- Slit-lamp examination
Scheduling an Appointment for a Pediatric Eye Examination
In scheduling an appointment for an eye examination, choose a time that is optimal for the child.
Treatment of a Pediatric Eye Condition
Vision or eye health problems detected during a pediatric eye examination are treated by our experienced team of physicians using the latest techniques and taking into account the special needs of developing eyes. Treatment of pediatric vision conditions may include corrective lenses to improve focusing or clarify vision. More serious conditions affecting the health of the eye, such as glaucoma, cataracts or retinopathy of prematurity, may require a medical or surgical treatment approach.
Our practice and our physicians strive to provide the highest quality of care so that children are able to achieve optimal vision and eye health that does not affect their school work or other everyday activities.
