School Vision Screenings vs. Comprehensive Eye Exams
Pediatricians or schools typically check your child’s eyes for basic abnormalities. But to ensure good vision and proper eye health development, a comprehensive eye exam by an optometrist is required.
Comprehensive eye evaluations are crucial in revealing potential vision problems, which can interfere with kids’ learning development. This tests for refractive error, color vision, binocular vision and overall eye health.
What is Assessed During a Pediatric Eye Exam?
At Pinnacle Eyecare, we use age-appropriate instruments, testing procedures, and technologies that provide accurate results independent of your child’s response.
Your child’s vision- related learning skills will be assessed by evaluating the following:
- Eye Focusing
- Eye Tracking
- Eye Muscle Teaming
- Depth Perception
- Color Perception
- Peripheral Awareness
- Near Visual Acuity
- Distance Acuity
How Often Should A Child have an Eye Exam?
Children should have their first comprehensive eye exam at 6- 12 months of age. Subsequently, we recommend an examination between 3-5 years and then annually after that. For school- aged children who don’t require correction, an eye exam every 2 years is recommended. Children who need eyeglasses or contact lenses should be examined annually or as recommended by your optometrist.
