Comprehensive Eye Examination
We provide complete eye care for both adults and children, including infants from six months of age. Our comprehensive eye examinations include a complete pretest consisting of a screening retinal photo and an OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) scan, as well as a thorough medical and vision check. If you are having any specific eye issues or have any special needs or circumstances that require additional attention, please mention them at the time you make your appointment.
One in four children has a vision problem that will interfere with learning.
Young children can’t tell us when they’re having vision problems since they don’t realize they are not seeing properly. They believe that images are supposed to be blurry because they have never seen them any other way. It takes until at least age 8 before a child will realize they aren’t seeing like everyone else, and by the time a school screening uncovers a potential problem it may be too late to correct it. It is up to parents to be alert to signs that could indicate a vision problem.
It’s natural for parents to take their child for regular health and dental exams. However, unless a problem is noticed or a child complains of poor vision, parents seldom think of routine eye exams. Most people are surprised to hear that a child’s first eye exam should be between the ages of six and nine months and that children should have a yearly eye exam starting at three years of age.
Did You Know…
- That children with vision difficulties are often diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder.
- Vision disorders are the fourth most common disability in the U.S. and the most prevalent handicapping condition during childhood.
- 80% of children in learning disability (LD) classes have a vision problem. This is the reason the State of Ohio now mandates an eye exam for each of those children.
- 80% of learning for children comes through the eyes.
- Some children are labeled “learning disabled” or “hyper-active” when all they need is an eye exam and appropriate vision correction.
- Simple school vision screenings only identify 5% of vision problems in children according to the American Foundation for Vision Awareness.
ProCare doctors are pleased to participate in the InfantSee® program established to promote children’s eye exams.
This program enables any child under the age of one to receive a free eye exam.
Cooing, sitting up, and crawling are signs that your baby is growing. Your baby’s vision has stages of development too, but the signs marking progress are not so obvious.
For many months to come, those little eyes will be the windows she uses to learn almost everything about her new world.
It’s up to you to help her develop properly, and ensure that she sees her new world clearly and accurately.
Many eye conditions have no symptoms that can be identified by a parent or in a well baby check-up. Early detection is the best way to ensure your child has healthy eyes and appropriate development of vision- now and in the future.
All ProCare Optometrists are AOA InfantSEE Providers
The American Optometric Association encourages parents to add a trip to the optometrist to the list of well-baby check-ups. Assessments at six to twelve months of age can determine healthy development of vision. The InfantSee program allows every infant to be examined at no charge before the age of one.
