Instilling strong eye care in your children when they are young can lead to a life of healthy eyesight that can help to curtail the development of common eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration in later life. If you are in need of a pediatric optometrist for your child, please call Lehigh Valley Eye Care Associates and schedule an appointment. As your pediatric eye doctor, we will provide comprehensive eye care for your child that will address any deficiencies that they may have with their vision.
At Lehigh Valley Eye Care Associates we believe that eye care should start at an early age. By beginning regular eye exams at a young age, your child is more likely to make vision care a consistent part of their overall health and wellness habits. If your child requires corrective lenses, regular exams will ensure that their prescription is up-to-date and at the correct level.
Every child should receive proactive eye care prior to starting school as many vision problems that go undiagnosed can lead to difficulties in the classroom that can even cause behavioral issues if they go untreated. At your child's initial eye exam, you can expect them to have their eyesight checked using screening tools; we will also check them for signs of color blindness, and visual function.
Our comprehensive examination will ensure your child's level of depth perception, tracking, and ability to distinguish different colors are functioning properly. In addition to eye function, we will measure their clarity of sight and determine if they require corrective lenses. Eye exams will also include procedures that will recognize any eye shape abnormalities or similar issues that can develop into a problem.
