Vision problems can significantly hinder a child's development and academic success. We offer comprehensive children's exams that go beyond the routine examination. A simple eye chart screening can miss up to 1/3 of vision problems! Screenings DO NOT take the place of a full eye exam. (To the left: Dr. Caughell examining a 6 month old)
Not only will we make sure your child is using their eyes properly and can see well, but will also evaluate the eye health with a dilated retinal examination.
Remember, many children think that blur, eyestrain, and focusing problems are normal and will not tell you because it is all they have ever known.

Did you know? The American Optometric Association recommends eye exams at 6 months old, 3 years, 5 years, and every 2 years while in school. (Recommended visits will be more frequent for those children with vision problems).
