  • What Should You Expect?

    Sometimes it’s difficult to tell what is actually a problem and what is part of normal growth. If it’s out of the ordinary, it’s never a bad idea to get an eye exam. Contact our staff if you notice the following signs and symptoms with your child:

    • Loses their place while reading
    • Avoids close work
    • Holds reading material closer than normal

  • School Vision Exams

    It’s important for children to be able to fulfill their potential at school. Unfortunately, vision problems many times keep kids from absorbing all the information. In fact, the skills needed for school are:

    • Near Vision
    • Distance Vision
    • Binocular Coordination
    • Eye Movement Skills
    • Focusing Skills
    • Peripheral Vision
    • Hand-Eye Coordination

  • Protective Eyewear for Kids

    Our kids are active. They play outside on sports teams and with friends. However, lack of protective eye care is one of the leading causes of eye injuries in young children. It’s important for children to have protective eye care to ensure this won’t happen to them. If your child plays a sport, it’s imperative that you prepare them with the proper protective eye care.
