Children's vision care is essential to every child's development. Children with uncorrected vision conditions or eye health problems face many barriers in life ... academically ... socially ... and athletically. High-quality eye care can break down these barriers and help enable your children to reach their highest potential.
Vision doesn't just happen. A child's brain learns how to use eyes to see, just like it learns how to use legs to walk or a mouth to form words. The longer a vision problem goes undiagnosed and untreated, the more a child's brain learns to accommodate the vision problem.
Experts say that over 80 percent of what is learned in school is presented visually, so your child's vision can make a big difference in their academic performance. That's why a comprehensive eye examination is so important for children. Early detection and treatment provide the very best opportunity to correct vision problems, so your child can learn to see clearly.
A thorough examination by our doctors can detect any vision problems your child may have, which can then be promptly treated. Periodic exams are also needed to ensure your child's eyes are healthy and to rule out other vision problems that may interfere with your child's vision development and academic performance. Please ask our staff about the recommended age for a child's first eye examination.
