Pediatric Eye Exams

Primarily, parents will provide as much as possible for their children. However, eye exams are a necessity for eye health. While diet and protective eyewear are essential in preventive eye care, you shouldn’t leave eye exams out of the equation. However, since you always want the best for your child, you may wonder whether pediatric eye exams are 100% safe. Alice Family Eye Center provides comprehensive eye exams to patients of all ages, and today we are happy to touch on the safety of pediatric eye exams.

What Does a Pediatric Eye Exam Entail?

A children's pediatric eye exam isn’t very different from an adult's. First, the eye doctor understands the child’s medical history and inquires about the child’s development in learning and co-curricular activities. We then administer several eye tests to check your child’s color perception, assess refraction, test visual acuity and examine the eye structure. All this time, we explain to your child what we are about to do. This information will ensure your child is not surprised by any means. 

Next, we will discuss with you the next steps based on the findings of the eye exam. If your child needs eyewear, we will discuss the best options. We usually ask your support to explain to your child what to expect to embrace the treatment offered.

Even if your child is young, don’t dismiss eye exams. Seniors are at more risk of eye conditions, but this doesn’t mean children are 100% safe. Consider regular eye exams to ensure these problems don’t compromise your child’s performance in learning and sports.

Are Pediatric Eye Exams Entirely Safe?

Nothing in this world is 100% safe. For example, during children’s eye exams, they may be accidentally poked by our optometrist if they don’t remain still. While the chances of this occurring are slim, it can still happen. Besides, dilation exams may cause slight headaches and light sensitivity. Therefore, bringing your child’s sunglasses is essential to prevent light sensitivity.
