Have you brought your child in for an eye exam recently? At Spare Pair Vision Center, our Monmouth optometrist and the rest of our staff firmly believe in the importance of regular eye exams for patients of all ages. For children especially, monitoring how their vision is changing as they grow and develop can make a huge difference in their everyday lives. For example, if your child has an undiagnosed vision condition, their inability to see properly can lead to academic and even behavioral problems while they are at school, all for something that can easily be fixed with the help of our Monmouth optometrist.
For school-aged children, that is why we typically recommend that they come in for a comprehensive eye exam once a year, preferably before school begins. At Spare Pair Vision Center, we strive to create a friendly, welcoming environment that children will enjoy to visit and will look forward to returning back to when it comes time for their next pediatric eye exam. During each pediatric eye exam, our Monmouth optometrist will administer a series of tests and examinations in order to most fully evaluate the current state of your child’s vision and eye health, and to be able to make recommendations for treatment if any condition or problem area is diagnosed.
Some of these tests and examinations include: a testing of your child’s visual acuity, a cover test, eye movement tests, eye teaming tests, a retinal examination, a dilated eye exam, refraction, a slit lamp examination, and more. All of the results acquired throughout the complete examination will aid on Monmouth optometrist in making personalized suggestions for your child’s vision and eye care. Some common issues that we notice and treat in our pediatric patients include: nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, amblyopia, strabismus, and more.
