Our Las Vegas NV kids optometrist can provide a complete eye exam for your child, while your child remains relaxed and comfortable.
If your child is having trouble seeing at school, do not be surprised if they do not mention this to you. It is very common for children to simply not tell their parents that they are having vision problems. And, even if your child’s school provides a vision screening, it will only check to make sure that your child is able to see the front of their room, where the teacher is. A vision screening at school will not screen your child’s eyes for many different types of problems or eye diseases. It is important that children’s eyes are examined periodically by our Las Vegas NV kids optometrist not only to make sure that they can see clearly, but also to ensure that their visual systems are developing properly. If your child does have a vision problem such as strabismus or amblyopia, the sooner the problems is found and treated, the more likely it is that your child will be able to easily overcome these vision problems. Our eye doctor can also completely test your child’s refraction to make sure that he or she is seeing clearly. All refractive errors, including astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness can be corrected with prescription eyeglasses. Contact lenses are also now available for children, however, it is important that the child can learn to insert or remove the contact lenses, and understands the need for impeccable hygiene whenever touching their eyes. At our vision practice, we offer a complete selection of designer eyeglass frames, for both children and adults.
