Kids Optometry

The pediatric eye exam is composed of the same elements that an adult eye exam has, but with one extra feature:

  • Any refractive errors that need be corrected with glasses
    • o Cycloplegic refraction for kids – to make sure you get the exact prescription for the very energetic kids
  • Your pupils to make sure there’s no neurological problems
  • color vision deficiencies
  • Extraocular muscles, to make sure your eyes are moving/aligned correctly
  • The anterior segment of the eye to determine if there’s cataracts, or corneal abnormalities
  • The posterior segment, with dilation, to determine if there’s bleeding or retinal changes due to diseases such as diabetes and hypertension
  • Peripheral vision and intraocular pressure– to determine damage due to glaucoma
