If you are looking for an expert optometrist who can provide your child with pediatric eye care, we hope you will visit us at Optical Outlets. At our vision practice our pediatric optometrist in Brandon FL can provide your child with eye exams as well as pediatric eye care.
It is very important that children have their eyes examined on a periodic basis to make sure that there are no eye problems or diseases developing. If a child does have an eye problem, the sooner it is diagnose the easier it can generally be treated and fixed. For this reason it is very important that you bring your child in to see our pediatric optometrist in Brandon FL for an eye exam. Our pediatric optometrist will let you know how often your child should have subsequent eye exams. Many children have trouble seeing the front of the classroom, or even reading a book or seeing a computer screen clearly. During our eye exam your child’s eyes will not only be checked for refractive errors such as astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness, but will also have many other factors checked which could affect the way your child processes visual information. When a child is having trouble in school, or even during sporting activities, it could be cause by a vision problem. Our pediatric optometrist will screen for these problems which can include trouble with: binocular vision (how the eyes work together); focusing skills; peripheral vision; color vision; hand eye coordination; and tracking skills. Our eye doctor will also check for eye diseases. If your family has a history of eye problems, you will want to relay this information, as well. Many times when children have trouble seeing it school they do not even think to mention this to their parents. So it is important that you don’t wait for your child to mention anything about vision problems before you bring them in for an eye exam.
