We know what matters most.
Clear vision & great style are paramount in your choice
Children’s eyes are always in use at school and at play. It is estimated that up to 80% of learning occurs through a child’s vision. Uncorrected vision problems can limit children academically, athletically and socially.
A comprehensive eye examination can identify vision issues like nearsightedness, farsightedness or amblyopia (lazy eye), as well as set up treatment to promote healthy vision development and break down the barrier poor vision can create. A full examination can also detect learning-related vision disorders, which can plague classroom performance while the child appears to see well otherwise.
While wearing glasses may be difficult for a child to accept, our office offers a variety of frame shapes, styles and sizes to choose from to help find something every child can be comfortable in. Plus, our warranties on lenses and frames let you rest easy. We’ve got you covered when accidents happen!
We protect our kids with seat belts, sunscreen and sports guards, but what about their eyes? Ultraviolet radiation absorbed by the eye increases the risk of ocular diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration over the long term. Studies have shown 80% of a person’s lifetime exposure to this damaging radiation occurs before age 10.
Making sure your child has proper UV-protective sunwear for outdoor play and activities helps prevent these conditions later in life. Children wearing glasses can also be protected by utilizing Transitions lenses that automatically turn into sunwear.
Did your child have an accident that caused trauma to the eye? Our doctors can assess the extent of trauma to the eye and determine if any microscopic damage is present.
