Children's Eye Health

Did you know that 80% of learning occurs through your child’s eyes?
That’s why we advise an eye exam in the first year of life.

Because we feel so strongly about this, our doctors participate in a program called InfantSee and perform a complimentary eye exam to infants 6 to 12 months old. This means we are able to detect potential issues that can lead to what is commonly referred to as lazy eye. If left untreated, lazy eye can lead to permanent loss of vision.

Since children of any age have limited life experience, they may not know or be able to articulate that they don’t see well. It’s common for a parent to think everything is okay if a child passes an eye screening. Since a screening is not a detailed examination, it’s very important to have your child examined by an eye specialist. Parents can help by keeping a watchful eye on their children’s vision patterns. In addition, children having difficulty in school or suffering from headaches, focusing problems, visual strain or squinting should have their eyes evaluated.

The doctors at Envision Eyecare advise eye exams for children starting at pre-school and continuing annually after the age of six. Ensuring your child’s eyes are healthy with good vision correction will give your child the opportunity to reach maximum potential.

At Envision Eyecare, we test for color vision, depth perception, near and far focus, proper eye alignment and eye muscle function to ensure that vision and the eyes are fully functional and corrected appropriately.
