If you wear glasses or contact lenses, you know how important it is to see your optometrist regularly to update your prescription so that you can see clearly. As an adult, it is easy to stay on top of your eye care, as you'll be able to tell when your vision is no longer as clear as it once was. For your children, on the other hand, things can be a bit trickier. Kids may not necessarily understand what is going on with their eyes, so it is up to you to ensure they receive regular eye exams. At Optics Soho in Tampa and Riverview, FL, we offer pediatric eye exams. We'll be happy to work with you and your children to ensure that they have clear vision for life.
The Importance of Eye Care for Kids
In the early stages of their lives, children's bodies and brains are developing rapidly, and they'll be learning many new materials at school. However, they'll likely have a difficult time grasping important concepts in the classroom if they are unable to see well. That is why seeing an optometrist regularly is essential for your little ones. You may not even realize that they are having trouble seeing until an eye doctor identifies the problem.
We offer thorough eye exams for patients of all ages, and our optometrists are great at working with children. We do everything possible to ensure your children are as comfortable as possible and understand what we are doing, helping them to relax. With an eye exam, we can also detect any conditions or diseases, like myopia and provide myopia treatment.
When you work with us, we'll monitor your children’s vision as they grow up, alerting you to any ongoing changes. If there is a problem, we will provide your little ones with corrective lenses so that they don’t miss out on anything important at school or for myopia control. If your kid is diagnosed with myopia, we can discuss and recommend contact lenses for myopia to help them see clearly. With clear vision, they'll be able to take full advantage of every opportunity life throws their way.
