PEDIATRIC EYE CARE
Protecting your eyes at all stages of life is imperative. As parents, it’s our responsibility to help our children get started in the right direction when it comes to eye health and vision. Ignoring eye health issues during the early stages of life can cause them to worsen over time. At Advanced Eyecare, we welcome patients of all ages including children. If you live in Raytown, Raymore, Blue Springs, or the surrounding area, speak with one of our eye doctors about our pediatric eye care services.
The Importance of Eye Care for Children
Children often struggle in school as a result of vision problems. It is a proven fact that compromised vision can impact a student’s academic performance and confidence. An eye exam can help our doctors determine if your child needs glasses or if there are any eye health issues. Regularly scheduled eye exams allow the eye doctor to monitor the condition of the child’s eyes and detect gradual changes that may affect his or her vision. Parents can have peace of mind knowing that their family eye doctor is checking for a variety of eye diseases and correcting any vision issues as needed.
Eye Care for the Whole Family
Our optometrists have a wide range of eye care services for our patients. Our offices have the latest state of the art technology that can detect even slight vision problems that can affect your child. Our staff is friendly, and we have a relaxed atmosphere that will put your child at ease during his or her eye exam. A comprehensive eye exam will include a medical and family history, vision screenings, eye functioning, and dilation to examine the major components of the eye such as the cornea, lens, retina, and optic nerve.
We understand an exam like this may cause some anxiety in children, but we will do everything possible to make them feel comfortable throughout the process. After the examination, our eye doctor will then discuss, if necessary, the need for vision correction or possible treatments for eye health. We have a large selection of frames that are suitable for children. We will help you find the perfect pair of glasses that your child will actually want to wear.
