Pediatric Eye Exams
During the comprehensive eye exam our doctors will evaluate your child’s visual acuity, eye alignment, eye teaming, eye tracking, color vision, depth perception and ocular health. They will check for any signs of amblyopia (lazy eye), which is a permanent unilateral or bilateral reduction of best-corrected vision and can be prevented if diagnosed and treated at an early age. Your child should have an eye exam even if he/she has had a screening at school or the pediatrician’s office. Vision screenings often miss eye problems such as amblyopia and are limited so they should not be used to diagnose vision or ocular health problems.
