Here at Lakeside Eye Associates, we offer pediatric eye exams for children of all ages. By taking them in for a pediatric eye exam at our optometrist in Huntersville, SC, you are ensuring your child will have great vision through their developmental years.
A pediatric eye exam is like a standard eye exam, but one that’s intended for young children. As such, the optometrist may be more concerned about eye muscle movement ability, eye strength, and eye alignment to make sure these are all developing normally.
Your optometrist is looking for the following in a pediatric eye exam:
If your child has the above eye conditions, it’s possible they could be squinting more often in an attempt to accommodate for their bad vision. They may be more likely to have headaches. They may display behavioral issues and have issues with learning and reading at school.
When you bring your child in for a pediatric eye exam with our optometrist, there’s no need to worry. These exams are quite standard and the following a list of exams we will conduct:
If the optometrist does indeed find that something’s wrong with the child’s eyes, they and the parent can discuss the next steps. In most cases, prescription glasses or contact lenses often make a huge difference in a child’s life. They’ll be able to see more clearly and reduce squinting, headaches, and learning difficulties.
If the vision issue is something more severe than that, the optometrist may recommend the child to a specialist, such as an ophthalmologist.
