Children, oh how quickly they grow!

A child’s vision changes and grows as rapidly as they do and having proper vision is essential for both academic success and physical development.  A comprehensive eye exam at an early age may help children avoid any eye complications and visual problems from developing into their adulthood.

Bifocals For Children?

Many people associate multifocal (bifocals, trifocals, and progressive) lenses with the aging process.

While it’s true that many people find that they need help with vision at more than one focal length as they age, bifocals can be used very effectively with young people, and can actually preserve their vision as they mature.

Children should see their optometrist at six months of age, for a preliminary vision screening. They should return for more in-depth examination when they turn three, and should have a comprehensive vision assessment performed by a professional eye doctor when they enter the first grade.
