Pediatric Eye Exams
While it is a common belief that vision problems can only happen to adults, kids can develop vision problems that can lead to lifelong vision complications. If these vision problems are not fixed at a young age, it can affect with their learning ability when they are at school. At Lifetime Eyecare Solutions in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, we have a pediatric eye doctor who can examine your child’s eyes and provide corrective eye treatment should a vision problem arises.
Through a child’s eyes, anything with lights and big equipment can frightening to the child. At our optometry office, our optometrist in Tulsa and Oklahoma makes sure that your child is comfortable at all times at our kid-friendly office. When your child is calm, a proper examination can be done.
Importance of the Pediatric Exams
While poor eyesight can affect your child’s learning ability, there are eye conditions that young children are more at risk than adults. Strabismus, for example, is a condition where eyes have become misaligned and special treatment is needed for this condition. Amblyopia is another condition that involve the eyes to develop improperly or more slowly than normal. Our family eye doctor can detect these conditions through a pediatric eye exam so that appropriate eye care treatment can be provided.
