Keeping an Eye on Your Whole Family
Regular vision care isn’t just for adults; annual eye exams are crucial for children’s eye health and vision, too. The vision test at your pediatrician’s office only checks distance vision; it is NOT an eye exam! Failure to detect and treat vision disorders such as problems with eye muscle function, depth perception, and near vision, in children affects development, learning performance, self esteem, social-emotional behavior, etc. Are shin pads, shoulder pads, and shoes, more important than a back to school comprehensive eye exam? We can hear you saying, “I had no idea!” all the way over here.
Kid’s Eye Health
At a stage in life when every minute is an educational experience, why risk missing a single moment? Early detection of issues is crucial to preventing eye problems later. Children should have their eyes examined at least annually, or as recommended by your doctor, even if they don’t indicate that there are any problems. Kids usually don’t realize that they aren’t seeing optimally. You can help protect your child’s eyes by starting eye care at a young age. Our Doctors Hendrickson, Knutson and Mueller are InfantSEE® Providers. They perform one time comprehensive eye assessments on infants 6-12 months, at no cost, regardless of income, ensuring that eye and vision care becomes an essential part of infant wellness care to improve a child’s quality of life.
