Importance of Pediatric Eye Exams
Many parents wait until their child is ready to go to school for the first eye exam. Certain schools even require a vision screening for admission. However, we recommend a comprehensive eye test for your child within the first year of his or her birth. We can guide you on an ideal schedule for eye tests depending on your child’s age and eye health. A child’s first pediatric eye exam is typically performed at six months of age.
At our facility, we are committed to providing children with a comfortable environment so they are relaxed during pediatric eye exams. Before beginning the eye exam, our optometrist in Lawton will assess your child’s medical history, including family medical history that is relevant to eye health. Our pediatric eye doctor will then perform several eye tests to determine the overall health of your child’s eyes. This will include visual examination and inspection through specialized devices. The most common pediatric eye tests include visual acuity, ocular health, color vision, eye tracking, stereopsis, and lazy eye.
Eye Treatment and Preventive Care
If our optometrist detects any issues during the eye exam, we will guide you through treatment. We can also guide you on preventive care for your child. There are several things you can do to keep your child’s eyes in optimal condition, even when your child is very young, including limiting visual engagement, providing a balanced diet, protecting your child’s eyes with appropriate eyewear, recognizing early signs of vision problems, and following a regular eye checkup schedule.
