Pediatric Wellness Exam

Typically scheduled every one to two years, your optometrist is able to evaluate your child for a wide range of pediatric visual and health complications that school screenings regularly miss.

  • refraction, or a special technique called dilated retinoscopy, will be performed to evaluate the need for glasses without your child needing to choose between "1 or 2."
  • sensorimotor screening measures binocular vision and accommodation, along with depth perception, color vision, and a sight threatening condition called amblyopia (lazy eye)
  • Biomicroscopy and ophthalmoscopy are performed to screen your child for congenital eye tumors, congenital cataracts and glaucoma
