We provide a friendly, comfortable, and caring environment that utilizes the latest medical techniques and state-of-the-art ophthalmic equipment.

Maintaining your child's eye health is our goal. Good vision is vital to learning at school, and vision problems that are undetected and untreated may present the same symptoms and signs frequently as distractibility, hyperactivity, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Your child may not be able to communicate that he or she is experiencing a vision problem because of the belief that this is the way that everyone sees the world. Even if your child recognizes that something isn't right, he or she may not have a way to effectively communicate the issue to you. Therefore, according to the American Optometric Association (AOA), children should have an eye examination every year or more frequently if there are specific issues or risk factors.

Signs that May Indicate that Your Child is Experiencing a Vision Problem

If you notice that your child is experiencing any of the following tendencies, it may be time to schedule an appointment for an eye exam. Pediatric eye care is vital not only for his or her well-being, but it will help your child to keep up at school and achieve scholastic success. Therefore, please note if any of these symptoms occur:

  • Eye discomfort and fatigue
  • Frequent blinking or rubbing the eyes
  • Headaches
  • Short attention span
  • Avoiding activities that require visual acuity such as reading
  • Tilting the head to one side or covering one eye
  • Holding printed material close to the face
  • Losing the place when reading
  • Double vision
  • Difficulty remembering text
