Monitoring Visual Development in Your Children
Consistent vision care starts at a young age. At Sokol Advanced EyeCare, we provide comprehensive eye exams for the whole family, including your children.
Our team will work with you and your children to instill good vision care habits to help them preserve their vision throughout adulthood. Eye exams can help our team detect potential vision issues and eye disease.
Whether it’s your child’s first eye exam or another routine check-up, we are here for you. Book an appointment and schedule your child’s next eye exam with us!
Not Just a Routine Checkup
Eye exams allow our team to determine your child’s prescription and manage vision problems such as strabismus (crossed eyes) and amblyopia (lazy eye). We also check for refractive errors such as:
- Myopia (nearsightedness)
- Hyperopia (farsightedness)
Early visual development is crucial to your children’s growth, not just for their visual health but for their overall health.
Untreated visual issues can negatively affect your child’s development and interfere with learning both inside and outside the classroom.
Frequency of Eye Exams
You may be wondering what the right time is to bring your children in for an eye exam. The right time can depend on various factors, such as age and stage of visual development. Your child’s vision will be ever-changing—consistent eye exams can help us monitor crucial visual development.
The American Optometric Association recommends the following eye exam frequency for children:
- First exam between 6 to 12 months of age
- At least 1 exam between 3 and 5 years of age
- 1 exam before first grade and annually from 6–17 years of age
During the exam, our team will conduct comprehensive, holistic ocular testing to test your child’s visual health.
We will test important visual skills such as:
- Eye focusing
- Eye teaming
- Eye tracking
- Eye-hand coordination
- Visual perception
- Visual acuity
