Children’s Eye Exams, Aurora, ON
You can be sure to take the appropriate steps to improve their vision for the future.
Your child’s vision has a direct impact on the way they learn in school and how they take in the world around them. At Dr. Miller & Dr. Tilis Family Optometry, we encourage our patients to bring their children in for routine eye exams prior to their beginning school to ensure that they get started on the right foot.
More than 25% of school-age children have vision problems, and these vision issues can be directly correlated to their school performance. Children’s eye exams are a great way to determine if your child has minor, moderate, or severe vision correction needs. We recommend eye exams as early as 6 months, and then again around the age of three. This way, you can be sure to have an early diagnosis of any vision concerns and take the appropriate steps to improve your child’s vision for the future.
Some other indicators that your child may need an eye exam include squinting to see various objects, rubbing their eyes a lot, sitting too close to the television or holding books close to read, or complaining that their eyes are tired or that they can’t see. During children’s eye exams, we’ll check for eye coordination, eye movement skills, ability to focus, peripheral awareness and hand-eye coordination. We can then determine whether corrective lenses will be a good fit for their eye health and their everyday life in Aurora, Ontario.
