The Importance of Pediatric Eye Care – From Your Kids Optometrist in Lawrence
Proper development in children depends on good eyesight, and good eyesight depends on eye exams from a qualified optometrist. Our vision care team is trained to work with children, and we are passionate about quality eye care. We will examine your child’s eye thoroughly, and work with you to ensure that he or she sees as well as possible, year after year. Our services include:
We will determine whether your child needs vision correction. Some children require vision correction quite early, which is part of the reason we recommend eye exams early on in your child’s development. Kids may not know that they are not seeing clearly and go for an extended period of time in need of vision correction – which can lead to struggles in school, play, and general development.
Our team can advise you on vision correction options appropriate to your child’s age, including both glasses and contacts. There are a lot of options for vision correction available. We can guide you through them to find the one that works the best for your child.
Comprehensive Eye Exams
Although clear and accurate vision is hugely beneficial for children, there are other reasons to come in for an eye exam. We not only examine your child’s eyesight, we also examine his or her eye health. Eye diseases are not common in children, but they do happen. The key to protecting your child’s eye health is spotting the signs of eye disease early on when treatment is often more effective.
During Our eye exams, we look for a variety of eye diseases to ensure that your child is given the most thorough protection available.
Pediatric Eye Care Schedule
- First exam at 6 months
- Second exam at 3 years
- Eye exams every year afterward
The schedule of eye exams for your child may be different, depending on whether or not he or she is considered “at risk” of developing problems with vision. After your first eye exam, we can explain whether your child needs a different schedule.
