Children’s Vision

Vision is arguably the most important of the five senses; it plays a crucial role throughout childhood and beyond. Yet many parents don’t understand how vision helps their children develop appropriately. The articles below can help.

  • Contact lenses offer advantages in the areas of sports and self-esteem. But when is your child old enough for contacts?
  • How often should your child's eyes be examined? What's the difference between a school vision screening and a comprehensive eye exam? and more.
  • Certain types of contact lenses and eyeglasses may play a role in slowing the progression of myopia, or nearsightedness.
  • An individualized program of eye exercises and other methods can treat non-refractive vision problems such as eye alignment and lazy eye.
  • Knowing the expected milestones of your baby's vision development during their first year of life can ensure your child is seeing properly and enjoying their world to the fullest.

We want to thank everyone for their patience during this unusual time. We have now opened for our normal hours to serve all eye care needs. We do ask that you wear a mask when you enter our building. Unless you are a parent of a child or a caretaker, we are also asking you to leave friends and family at home or in the car unless they have business in the building as well. In an effort to keep physical distance guidelines, you may be asked to wait in your car for a phone call. Thanks again for your patience, and we look forward to serving you.
