Children's Eye Exams
The American Optometric Association recommends that each child have an eye examination prior to starting kindergarten. Starting in the 2009 school year, all children in Illinois are required to have an eye exam prior to entering kindergarten. We see children as young as three years-old and have all of the proper instruments and eye charts to conduct a very thorough eye exam on children. Children feel very comfortable in our kid-friendly office as we have a kids' corner complete with an African Animal mural and toys to keep children occupied prior to their eye exam.
We feature a full line of children's eyeglasses for all ages of children. We also fit contact lenses on children often times as young as seven or eight years old.
Something we are known for is that we provide vision retainers for children who are near-sighted. This revolutionary non-surgical procedure prevents the eyes from getting worse (more near-sighted) over the years. To learn more, click on Gentle Vision Shaping System under Our Services.
