Why Early Eye Exams Are So Important for Children

Good vision is essential to your child’s development. Healthy eyes are critical for learning in the classroom, participating in sports, and interacting with others.

As with many health problems, early detection of vision problems or eye diseases is critical to ensure an effective treatment as well as an optimal outcome. 

Fortunately, our pediatric optometrists specialize in the detection and management of pediatric eye conditions, so you can feel confident any problems will be remedied early – preventing major issues later in life.
