Routine eye exams are an essential part of every child’s development. It has been shown that 80% of what a child learns in school is processed through the visual system. The AOA recommends that every child have an eye exam at age six months, then three years old, then at age 5 (before entering kindergarten).
Don’t rely on your pediatrician or the school nurse screening to determine if your child has a vision problem. The screenings by pediatricians predominately target those children with near-sightedness and often miss those with far-sightedness, astigmatism, amblyopia, or problems with depth perception.
Near-sightedness or far-sightedness has a devastating effect on your child’s ability to process information in the school environment. Let us evaluate your child’s visual system and provide the necessary tools which allow them to excel academically.
