Exams and Eyeglasses for Kids
Grange Vision is great for every family member’s eye care needs. A problem with vision at a young age makes the crucial developmental benchmarks difficult to reach. A healthy diet and an encouraging atmosphere are important, but if one of the five senses – especially eyesight – isn’t corrected, school and other activities become difficult for your child to be successful in.
From the days of being an infant and older, a majority of learning is absorbed visually and anything hindering it should be addressed immediately.
A comprehensive eye exam from Grange Vision includes, but isn’t limited to, a visual acuity test, pupil test and an eye movement exercise. The AOA recommends children’s eye exams should be at 6 months, age 3 and every two years after that. These are only guidelines, and any issues with the eye development may require more frequent examinations.
What Will the Optician Ask About My Child?
When your family meets with Grange Vision, expect to be asked about a few general eye exam questions:
- Your child’s general health
- Common activities
- Any known eye problems or issues
Contact our optometry offices today to schedule your child’s next eye exam and to improve your family’s health.
Most kids will have to wear their glasses every day. We know the last thing a parent needs is another thing a child can complain about, so we focus on making sure the prescription is exact and the child actually likes their frames. Glasses are useless if they are not worn, so we encourage positive eyewear practices with your child.
