Pediatric Eye Exams
When setting up an eye exam for a child it is important to have a doctor like ours who is certified in developmental optometry.
Pediatric eye exams are important to assure normal development of both the eyes and vision. They are also important in ensuring the best possible potential in academic performance. Our pediatric eye exams are extremely thorough in checking for vision problems that could hinder learning, especially in the areas of reading, writing, and testing in school.
Children do not normally complain of vision issues simply because they believe their vision is just like everyone else’s vision. Vision and learning are closely intertwined. In fact, over 80% of what is learned in school is visual in nature. Parents do not always correlate troubles in school with having a vision-related issue that could be helped or fixed relatively easily. Learn more about vision and learning.

Adult Eye Exams
Adult eye exams are needed to continue current prescriptions and to ensure that you’re using your eyes as easily as possible in your everyday life. Too often, as adults, we tend to dismiss the comfort of our eyes and have focusing issues or strain often leading to headaches or fatigue at the end of the day.
Early Disease Detection Through the Eyes
You’ve probably heard that your eyes are the window to your soul, but did you know they’re also the windows to the rest of your body? Eye doctors are one of the first professionals to identify early disease development.
At the eye exam in our office, we can check for ocular problems with cholesterol, high or low blood pressure, diet, vascular issues, and other general health problems.
During your eye exam you’ll learn why you have the prescription that you have, what is causing any visual discomfort you may have, the current status of your ocular health, and also what you can do to help your vision in the future.
Routine exams allow early detection of any diseases that could lead to vision loss.
We also have a strong network of professionals that can help diagnose and treat any problems that we encounter that cannot be treated by our team.
