If you are a parent of a young child, you know the importance of healthy eyes and clear vision to your child’s development and learning potential. Serious vision problems can go undetected without a proper, comprehensive eye examination. If a vision problem does go undetected, both long term visual potential and school performance can suffer.
The doctors at First Eye Care Killeen understand the critical nature of early children’s eye examinations. We accept children of any age into the practice, and also look forward to serving those children with special needs. We use state-of-the art vision charts and equipment for assessing a child’s vision. Special tools and techniques are utilized to determine a child’s ocular health and vision status.
The most common question we receive from parents is: “At what age should I bring my kid in to the office to check their eyes?” The answer is NOW, if they have yet to have a complete eye examination. If your child is about to start Pre-K or Kindergarten, it is in the child’s best interest to have their eyes checked to make sure their visual system is functioning properly for learning success.
Not every child that is examined receives glasses. In fact, glasses are only prescribed to children that are in danger of having long-term visual impairment or need help with the way their two eyes work together. During the examination, we will also check the back of your child’s eyes to make sure they are not affected by any abnormal eye disease.
Thanks for trusting the eye health of your children to us. After their exam, you will be able to rest assured that their eyes and vision are in good hands.
