Pediatric Eye Care

Our office is uniquely equipped to examine children and special populations with a variety of professional equipment. We can test infants and non-verbal patients and provide an objective assessment based upon clinical methods and experience.

 

Every direct referral from a pediatrician or physician will be followed up with a summary to the referring physician in a timely manner.

 

Our doctors concur with the current guidelines of the American Optometric Association and recommends comprehensive eye examinations when a child is six months old and then again when the child is 3 years old and 5 years old. School-age children should have an eye examination yearly.
