Importance of Children’s Eye Exams

Children’s eye exams play a vital role in promoting optimal eye health and setting the stage for lifelong success. Comprehensive eye exams can detect and address potential issues early on to help improve overall visual function and enhance school and social life for kids. 

Our dedicated team is committed to creating a welcoming and educational environment for every child we see.

Recommended Frequency of Children’s Eye Exams

To safeguard your child’s vision, our clinic will see patients 4 years and older, and we can recommend you to a clinic that specializes in pediatrics if needed. Your child’s exam schedule may change depending on their specific needs.

For school-age children, a comprehensive eye exam every twelve months until the age of 19 is advised.

What to Expect During
a Child’s Eye Exam

During your child’s eye exam, our experienced optometrists will perform a series of assessments to evaluate their vision and eye health. These assessments may include:

Visual acuity testing is used to assess your child’s ability to see and distinguish objects at various distances. This form of testing often involves reading letters or symbols from an eye chart to determine the clarity of their vision.

Eye muscle movements are essential to a child’s visual accuracy and overall performance. This assessment can help detect issues with eye teaming and tracking, which can affect how your child sees.

Examining eye structures like the cornea, iris, lens, and retina is important for understanding the health of your child’s eye. This evaluation can help identify any abnormalities or signs of eye diseases or conditions that may affect their vision.

Assessing your child’s age-specific visual development can be important for understanding how their eyes are naturally developing. This part of the exam helps confirm whether their vision is developing appropriately and can also help identify any potential delays or issues that may require further attention.

Throughout the exam, our optometrists will be attentive to your concerns and ready to answer any questions you or your child may have. We believe in open communication and will provide guidance and recommendations tailored to your child’s unique visual needs.

Spotting Eye Problems In Children

Spotting eye problems in children can be challenging as they may not always exhibit obvious signs. A child also may not realize their vision needs support, or may not know how to express their visual challenges. 

As a parent, it’s important to be vigilant and aware of common indicators of potential vision issues.

Look out for the following signs a child may need an eye exam:

  • Poor concentration
  • Frequent squinting or closing of 1 eye
  • Complaints of headaches or eye strain
  • Difficulty reading
  • Frequent eye rubbing

If you notice any of these signs, it is recommended to schedule a comprehensive eye exam. We can assess your child’s vision and provide support to meet their needs.
