At Pelham Parkway Vision Center in the Bronx, we make sure that your entire family is taken care of. Regular eye exams for children are a vital part of protecting their vision and ensuring that vision problems are detected and treated early. We offer comprehensive pediatric eye care services, including routine vision exams, done by our experienced eye doctor. When you bring your children in for exams or treatment, you can expect to receive prompt, dependable and high-quality services.
We know how important it is for your children to have their eyes checked once or twice a year, and we encourage you to bring them in for these regular visits. During these exams, we will gather information on family history or any vision problems your children might have had before. We will also test their vision to make sure that their eyes are developing at a healthy rate and to check for any signs of nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, which can make it difficult for them to see objects clearly. Keep in mind that vision problems can affect your children’s ability to perform well in school, so catching these issues early and correcting them is highly important.
In addition to checking your children’s visual acuity, we will also determine their general eye health by looking for abnormalities or other signs of eye problems. We also check eye function, which includes testing depth perception, eye muscles, reactions to light, color vision and peripheral vision. These measures help us find out whether your children need any care for issues that can affect their vision. Keep in mind that if your children end up needing corrective lenses, we can help you choose the right ones for them. These lenses help ensure that your children are able to view objects around them clearly, which helps keep them safe. It also means that your children are able to read books and other materials used in school, which can improve their academic performance.
At our office, you can rest assured that your children will be treated with care. We know that children can become nervous about eye doctor visits, so we take steps to ensure that they feel safe and comfortable. Depending on your children’s ages, we will explain what we are doing throughout their visit and help them understand what they can expect from their eye exam.
If your children are due for their next eye exam, please contact our Bronx optometrist to set up an appointment at your earliest convenience. We will provide your children with high-quality eye care to protect their vision and ensure that they receive any needed treatments for eye problems. We are also available to discuss any concerns you have about your children's vision.
