Kids Eye Exams
Dr. David R. Frazee, O.D. provides family friendly eye care, including pediatric eye exam services. Learn about the children's eye care services we offer, when to bring your child in for an eye exam, and even what brands of pediatric eyewear we carry.
The American Optometric Association recommends that children have their first vision care exam at 6 months, so Dr. David Frazee can make sure your child's eyes are developing properly. Next, they'll need an eye exam at age three, and then right before they start first grade or kindergarten.
It's crucial that we check for pediatric eye conditions and evaluate your child for refractive errors. Otherwise, your child could start school with a vision problem that prevents them from reading and completing their homework.
The guidelines suggest that you bring your child in so early because children's eyes respond better to corrective treatment than adults. By being responsible with eye exam scheduling, you can set your child up for success in school and life. Dr. David Frazee works with children of all ages. We strive to keep eye exams quick and fun, so there's no fuss about coming in for a checkup.
When you bring your child in, Dr. David Frazee will ask about family history and any unusual habits you have noticed, such as reading reluctance or poor hand-eye coordination. We'll check out your child's eyes and eyelids, looking for both refractive errors and pediatric eye problems.
With vision care to correct refractive errors, your child can see clearly and take part in daily activities. Our wide selection of designer frames for kids means that your child can enjoy selecting glasses and expressing their personality.
For pediatric eye problems such as strabismus or amblyopia, we'll correct the eye problems through glasses and eye training. For instance, with strabismus, we might recommend vision therapy, eye drops, an eye patch, and special glasses to reverse the crossing of the eyes.
We carry a wide range of designer frames that combine fun with function. Brands you'll find at our vision care clinic include Candies, Puma, Rayban Juniors, Flexon Kids and much more. Our friendly staff will help you find eyewear that's intended to correct your child's vision problem, but built tough enough to withstand slips, falls, play, and more.
We'll customize the prescription of your Candies, Puma, Flexon Kids, or Rayban Juniors eyewear to your child's vision, and make sure the prescription is right through annual check-ups.
Not only do we stock a wide range of designer frames, we also have kids sunglasses. Since UV damage to the eyes is cumulative, it's never too early to develop good habits with sunglasses. Browse frames for yourself or your kids.
