Pediatric Care

Specialized Services to Protect Your Child's Vision

At Mountain Empire Eye Physicians, we offer specialized vision care for children, including the evaluation and treatment of pediatric vision issues. Many vision problems can be detected early and treated before they become detrimental to a child's development, learning abilities, and everyday function.

What you need to know about your child's vision:

  • Children need a yearly comprehensive eye exam along with their parent
  • Children have different eye conditions than adults
  • They often have trouble telling us what is bothering them
  • More often than not, a child cannot answer medical questions
  • A child's brain is still developing, particularly the areas involved in vision

Why a child with a vision problem should see a PEDIATRIC ophthalmologist:

  • These specialists have equipment specially designed for use with children
  • They know how to examine and treat children in a way that helps them to relax and cooperate
  • They have arranged and decorated their offices with children in mind, providing a comfortable and non-threatening environment for your child
