Maintaining your child’s eyesight plays an important role in their capacity to learn and to socialize with others. Regular eye exams can ensure your child’s normal vision development.
At Alderwood Optical, we understand the need to detect a child’s vision problems as early as possible. Let our pediatric eye doctor in Bothell, WA, discusses the importance of children’s eye exams.
Regular eye exams allow us to identify irregularities in your child’s eyes. We may check for their visual acuity, alignment, and depth perception. As members of the American Optometric Association, we advocate the InfantSEE® program.
This public health service program aims to emphasize the importance of visual health in infants. If your child is between ages of 6 months up to 12 months, they may undergo our comprehensive eye exam. This is a one-time, no-cost opportunity to preserve your child’s healthy eyesight.
We also recommend eye exams when your child turns 3 years old, before starting school, and every two years during school age. This provides a good opportunity to provide optical care in Bothell, WA, so that your child can enjoy learning and socializing.
Depending on the results of your child’s eye exam, we will recommend a treatment regimen that suits their needs. Immediate management of any vision impairment prevents its progression to irreversible eye conditions.
Our Bothell optometrist may also recommend wearing of prescription glasses or even vision therapy, as needed. From our wide selection of frames, we advise that you help your child pick a color and style. This will make the visit more enjoyable and ensure their cooperation on the next visit.
