Children with uncorrected vision conditions or eye health problems face many barriers in life academically, socially, and athletically.
A comprehensive eye health exam is necessary to ensure your child's visual system is functioning properly. Vision screenings at school are not sufficient to detect all visual problems your child may be having.
We recommend a pediatric eye exam once before the age of two and then again before your child starts school.
