Personalized Eye Exams for Your Children

Healthy vision care habits are built from a young age and carried through adulthood. At Royal Eye Care, we provide comprehensive eye exams for your children to help them understand their vision and familiarize them with a trip to the optometrist.

Vision care is essential for the whole family, and our goal is to instill consistent habits that your children can take home. 

You and your children can expect a warm welcome when you visit us for an eye exam. Schedule an appointment today.

Putting Your Children’s Visual Health First

Eye exams do more than just determine a prescription for new glasses or contact lenses. Early and frequent examinations can help us detect developing vision issues or eye disease and prepare a personalized treatment plan.

Early visual development is important for your children and can contribute positively to other aspects of their lives such as classroom learning, sports, and computer use. During the exam, our team can check for refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism

Your children may not notice or be hesitant to share that something is wrong with their vision. Some common signs and symptoms that can indicate visual issues include:

  • Frequent headaches
  • The need to squint to see
  • Frequent eye rubbing or blinking
  • Losing place while reading

These symptoms may indicate visual development issues, and an eye exam can get to the bottom of your child’s visual needs.

When to Visit Us

Your child’s vision is ever-changing and evolving, so consistent eye exams are essential to monitoring development. The American Optometric Association recommends the following eye exam frequency for children:

  • First exam at 6 to 12 months of age
  • At least 1 exam between 3 and 5 years of age
  • 1 exam before first grade
  • Annually from 6 through 17 years of age

We may recommend additional eye exams depending on your children’s visual needs outside the recommended frequency.

Dedicated Vision Care

At Royal Eye Care, we prioritize providing quality and dedicated vision care to patients of all ages. Frequent eye exams allow us to familiarize your child with good vision care habits they can carry through adulthood.
