PEDIATRIC EYE EXAM
Doctors of Optometry recommend infants have their first eye examination between six and nine months of age. Children should have at least one eye exam between the ages of two and five, and yearly after starting school to ensure optimal vision and development . A comprehensive eye exam will ensure your child's vision health is being looked at by our doctor
During a comprehensive eye exam, the doctor looks at all aspects of a child’s vision function, including how well the eyes focus up close, how the eyes work together and the overall health of the eyes. Even if your child has not yet speaking in full sentences or know their alphabets, the doctor can still complete an eye exam with pictures, shapes and other child- friendly ways.
