Your Child's Eye Care Is Important To Us
Routine eye exams are important to ensure your child's eyes are healthy and to rule out any potential vision problems that could interfere with school performance and potentially affect your child's safety. As children enter kindergarten and elementary school, good vision will become an essential part of learning.
We take pride in giving a thorough pediatric eye examination using the most advanced technology. We offer a complete medical assessment of the eye and our wide selection of frames and lens options will make your kid look and feel awesome!

When should I have my child's eyes examined?
According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), infants should have their first comprehensive eye exam at six months of age. Young children then should have their second eye exam at age three, and then again just before they enter the first grade - around age five or six.
For school-aged children, the AOA recommends an eye exam every two years if no vision correction is needed. Children who need eyeglasses or contact lenses should be examined annually or as prescribed by their eye doctor.
How do I know if my child needs glasses?
Often, parents will have their pediatrician do a brief examination of their child’s eyes, but a primary care doctor should not be a substitute for an eye exam performed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Only pediatric eye doctors have the proper training and advanced tools to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your child's eyes.
Many parents may not even be aware that their child is experiencing vision problems unless detected by a vision screening. These screenings are crucial because young children often don't realize what is or isn't normal, and are unlikely to speak up if they're not seeing as well as they should.
The signs that your child may be experiencing vision problems can be subtle. Parents should notice for squinting; tilting or turning the head to see something; eye misalignment; complaining of headaches; inability to see things that are far away; and trouble concentrating in school. Another sign is having an unusual spot in the eye in flash photographs (a white spot, for example, instead of the familiar red eyes), which can indicate nearsightedness or in some cases, a more severe eye disease.
Sitting close to the TV or holding things such as books very close to the face could also indicate a vision problem, but since these are common kid behaviors, parents should look for these symptoms in combination with the other signs that their child is having trouble seeing well.
It is critical to catch vision problems early. Some conditions, such as amblyopia, or "lazy eye," are most treatable when found at a young age, and are difficult to fix if it's diagnosed when a child is older, around age seven or more. For example, a child may have poor vision in one eye but see well enough with both.
What should I expect when visiting your eye clinic?
Routine eye exams take 20-30 minutes. If needed we will perform additional tests that may extend your eye appointment. Our knowledgeable vision center will do all they can to make your visit simple, complete, and to exceed your expectations.
What does quality eye care look like?
- A doctor that is receptive to your concerns and takes the time to understand your individual needs.
- A comprehensive check of your eyesight and overall eye health.
- Rule out potential vision issues or the need for vision therapy or specialized vision care.
- An ophthalmoscope
checkto illuminate and magnify the interior of your eye to detect such conditions as diabetes, cataracts or hypertension.
- A digital retinal scan to generate an extraordinary 200-degree picture of your eye’s retina. This enhanced view helps your optometrist to diagnose and prevent eye conditions and diseases, like glaucoma and macular degeneration.
