Do you notice any vision related problems in your child that is interfering with learning? Eye care is essential. Regular eye exams will alleviate the stress and worry that visual impairment can cause. That is why the American Optometrist Association recommends that children should have their first complete eye examination as early as six months and yearly thereafter.
A comprehensive eye examination by a Phoenix pediatric optometrist will determine if your child is having a functional vision problem. These may be severe enough to cause a reading or learning problem.
Proper visual development and visual acuity are necessary for children to learn and develop skills. These skills include motor coordination, reading, writing, and group participation in school. Early detection of eye conditions by a Phoenix pediatric optometrist guarantees prompt treatment and resolution.

Comprehensive eye exams generally test for visual acuity. Visual acuity is how we refer to conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, poor binocular vision, eye movement, ability focus, peripheral vision, and hand-eye coordination. However, an in depth examination can also detect several sight threatening and otherwise invisible threats such as glaucoma.
Phoenix Pediatric Optometrist Comprehensive Eye Exams
A child’s vision makes up nearly 80 percent of what they learn on a daily basis. If your child seems to be struggling academically then it may be time for a comprehensive eye exam. We recommend bringing them in for a proper exam every one to two years; for younger kids we recommend every six months because conditions tend to develop faster early in life. Additionally, an eye exam may be the only way to detect glaucoma before its symptoms take effect, so your exams shouldn’t stop after grade school.
