PEDIATRIC EYE CARE

  • Children's eye care as young as age 6 months. The exam for a three year old is quite comprehensive. Evaluation of vision quality, prescription, tracking abilities,muscle and focusing function as well as evaluation for disease is assessed. Lazy eye (Amblyopia) and wandering eye (Strabismus) is also carefully evaluated. Written reports are completed for parents and/or teacher upon request.
  • The recommended examination schedule for children is their first exam at 6 months -1 year, then at age 3, then at age 5. After that, every 1-2 years as per the doctors recommendation. Click Children Exams.

Liquids such as battery acid or bleach are toxic to the eye. Full treatment and monitoring is essential for complete resolution.
