Seeing an eye doctor regularly can help ensure that all the members of the family continue to enjoy optimal vision including your children. Unfortunately, too many parents do not have their children’s eyes checked by an eye doctor at a young age. Experts recommend that children have a comprehensive eye examination conducted by an eye doctor by the age of three, younger if the parents suspects that there may be a problem. Our doctor, Dr. Paul Thompson OD has the training, experience and diagnostic equipment to thoroughly check a young child’s eyes for any structural problems, visual acuity and developmental conditions and if necessary prescribe Vegas eyewear for kids to correct any vision problems.

There are some signs that your child may be having a problem with his/her vision and may benefit from Vegas eyewear for kids from our optical shop inside the Walmart Vision Center at Charleston and Decatur. Signs of a potential vision problem include: squinting, covering one eye or tilting their head to one side, sitting too close to the television, difficulty in school, frequent headaches, frequently rubbing of the eyes, trouble reading, or holding reading material too close. If you notice any of these signs bring your child into our office and let our doctor evaluate whether the behavior is a sign of a vision problem. Many vision issues with children are easily remedied with glasses or activities that train the eyes; other conditions are more serious and need to be attended to as soon as possible.

Should your child need Vegas eyewear our practice works very closely with the Walmart Vision Center to properly fit any prescription to the best frames for your child. From a simple vision correction to complex lenses to correct more severe vision problems our doctor will make sure your child has the proper glasses and will monitor his/her vision to make sure that the prescription is enhancing their vision. The optical shop carries a wide range of eyewear for children from those for infants, toddlers, the young child and the adolescent. For young children it is important that the frames are unbreakable and that the lenses be resistant to scratches and that the complete eyeglasses are light but strong and fit the child’s face properly. Our optical shop also carries a large selection of children’s sunglasses as well as safety glasses for participation in athletics. So, bring your child in for a checkup and let our doctor evaluate their eye development and vision.
