Is it time you schedule a vision appointment for your little one?
There is so much you want your child to see and experience in the world around them, which is why it’s so important that they are able to see everything clearly. There are many reasons a child should have a Wyomissing, PA, optometrist at their disposal.
I think every parent can agree that their child’s vision is vitally important to their health and wellbeing. Having vision problems can quickly impact your child’s day-to-day lives, whether in school or playing sports. While many pediatricians can often perform a vision screening on your newborn or school-age child, it’s a good idea to still turn to an eye doctor for your child’s eye care needs.
“Why choose an eye doctor?” You may be wondering, particularly if a pediatrician can easily perform this same screening. Of course, if amblyopia (“lazy eye”), astigmatism or other eye issues are detected during your child’s first vision screening, they will be referred by a pediatrician to a Wyomissing eye doctor for further evaluation and to correct the issue as soon as possible.
If children have vision problems then they should come in once a year for a routine eye exam. If your child does not have any issues, they may be able to come in only once every two years for an eye exam to make sure that everything is healthy.
One of the best things about having an optometrist to which you and your child can turn is that you will have a medical professional that can provide routine and also immediate eye care when your little one needs it most. Whether your child scratched a cornea while playing soccer or they are having trouble reading the chalkboard in class, there are many scenarios in which it’s a good idea to schedule an appointment with us. We can easily correct your child’s vision with glasses or contact lenses to make seeing (and life) just a little bit easier.
