Back to School Eye Exams at Today's Vision
At Today's Vision, our pediatric optometrist performs back to school eye exams to detect vision problems. Annual vision exams allow us to detect eye conditions and irregularities early on and preserve your child's vision. A child's vision changes often, so uncorrected problems can affect their learning and impair their development. That's why eye exams are crucial for your child before the school year begins.
Eye Exam and Consultation
During an eye exam with our pediatric optometrist, we will ask you questions about any symptoms your child is experiencing, any medication they take, and their medical history. Family history of previous eye or vision conditions is discussed to understand what eye-related issues your child is predisposed to. Regular vision testing helps maintain a patient's eye health while preventing potential problems from occurring. We will measure your child's vision performance during a back to school eye exam by providing reading eye chart and wall eye chart tests. The results of these exams help us to prescribe corrective glasses and other eye care options.
About Eye Function Testing
Another integral part of a vision exam at Today's Vision is eye function testing. Our optometrist performs exams that test color vision, peripheral vision, depth perception, light responsiveness, and eye muscle functionality. These simple tests help us determine if your child's eyes focus, move, and work together well. These tests help Dr. Cheng, our pediatric optometrist, diagnose any eye conditions that may occur.
Importance of Early Detection
An eye exam helps to look for any irregularities in your child's eyes. We recommend that pediatric eye exams should begin at age 3, even before starting school. At this important health visit, we can make sure that your child's eyes are working well so they can perform well in school. We can track a child's progress at future vision exams to see if any additional treatment is necessary. This may include eye exercises when they are favoring one eye to the other.
