Pediatric Eye Exams
Regular eye exams are a crucial component of health care in young children that often is not given the attention it demands. Most children will have healthy and normal-functioning eyes, but there is always a risk for eye disease or damage, most of which are more easily treatable in children than in adults, which is why annual pediatric eye exams are so important.
Children have vision needs that go beyond simply ‘needing glasses.’ Our optometrists are trained to detect, diagnose, and treat many complications that can occur as a child’s eye matures. Additionally, our eye exams are specifically catered to children. Our experienced, caring doctors and staff strive to create a kid-friendly atmosphere and carry a full line of frames for infants, children, and young adults.

The first routine eye exam after infancy, with an Optometrist, is recommended at age 3. Most insurance plans cover Routine Eye Exams with a copay of $10 or $15. If you are concerned about your child’s eyes, see an eye turn, or notice your child struggling to see most insurance plans cover an appointment with your medical insurance. Please inquire with our office to confirm coverage.
