Good vision is critical for all of us, but especially children. At Nashville Eye Group, we love kids and welcome them for eye care services.
Eye exams for kids are especially important because some eye conditions that are treatable early on become permanent later. We also want to identify and correct any vision problems that would hinder learning and reading.
The essential information that must be obtained:
- assessment of vision
- eye alignment and muscle balance
- assessment of basic eye health
A childrens vision exam can include all the same tests as an adult exam depending on the age and cooperation of the child. We tailor each exam to the individual child and do as much as possible. Typically the older the child, the more that can be done.
