At 2020 Vision Place, our Tamarac optometrist is trained and experienced in providing eye care services for patients of all ages. We believe that it is never too early to get your child on the path to a lifetime of premium optical health and clear, crisp vision. Whether you think you child has an eye condition or not, it is important for you to have their eyes checked by our Tamarac optometrist, because there could be a condition or problem with their vision that is not outwardly apparent to you, or that your child might not be able to communicate to you.
The American Optometric Association recommends that the first eye exam should take place when your child is six months old, and then another should be administered at age three, and then again before they enter school for the first time. Having a vision problem can seriously affect how your child performs and behaves in school, so getting an exam before school begins is definitely a precautionary measure that should be taken. In addition, there are certain eye conditions that tend to be more prevalent in children that can be confirmed through a pediatric eye exam at 2020 Vision Place. Some of these conditions include amblyopia or lazy eye, strabismus or crossed eyes, pediatric cataracts, and more. Pediatric eye exams with our Tamarac optometrist can also indicate any problems with your child’s vision, like refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, and then we can provide your child with prescription glasses or contacts to correct the problem.
