Our Eye Doctors Specialize in Eye Care for Kids
Just as children have their own unique view of the world, their eyes are also not the same as adults. That’s why our optometrists serve Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Fayetteville, Wilmington, and Burlington, NC with customized eye care for kids. From babies to young children to teens, we perform annual eye exams for kids, which inspect thoroughly for a range of pediatric vision conditions.
Routine vision testing in schools does not detect many visual disorders and problems, and only an experienced, qualified eye doctor can spot the signs. When undiagnosed or untreated, these vision conditions can affect your child’s performance in the classroom, on the sports field, and in the playground. Why take chances with your kid’s vision? Call The Eye Center to reserve a pediatric eye exam today.
What happens in an annual eye exam for kids?
Our friendly eye doctor will evaluate your child’s visual skills, test refraction for farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism, and may administer a dilated eye exam to inspect the retina and optic nerve. We will inspect carefully for the symptoms of childhood ocular conditions, such as amblyopia, strabismus (misaligned eyes), and trouble with accommodation (focusing). Pediatric eye exams are quick and painless, and we aim to create a positive eye care experience for every child – so they look forward to returning!
Don’t wait until your child complains about her vision before booking an appointment with one of our optometrists. Even if kids suffer from blurred sight, it is typical for them to say nothing about it. Frequently, they aren’t even aware that the world should appear clearer.
What if my child needs vision treatment?
If your child requires vision correction, our optometrists will write the appropriate prescription. And since we are located right next door to Lenscrafters, finding the right pair of frames for your child couldn’t be more convenient!
