Get Your Back to School Pediatric Eye Exam from Our San Antonio Eye Doctor
If you have children preparing to head back into the classroom, you’ve likely thought about school supplies and new clothes. However, have you scheduled a pediatric eye exam with a San Antonio eye doctor to ensure that your child sees things clearly upon their return to school? If not, do so today, because nearly a quarter of school-aged children have unidentified vision issues that can cause them to fall behind in their studies.
Your child’s first ‘eye exam’ is likely to occur during a checkup with their pediatrician, and if they detect any vision issues they will refer you to an optometrist or ophthalmologist for further examination. However, you’ll want to bring your toddlers and school aged children in for exams at least bi-annually and annually if vision issues are present.
Kids often don’t know that they have vision issues, as they may think their distorted vision is ‘normal.’ Left undetected, vision problems can cause kids to suffer from clumsiness, headaches, reading delays and frustration performing daily tasks. The most detrimental issue is that untreated eye problems can lead to premature vision loss. However, a simple back to school eye exam can prevent these issues.
Here at Vision Source Castle Hills, our eye doctor in San Antonio provides each of our younger patients with a comprehensive kids eye exam in San Antonio. We can help your child be visually prepared to concentrate on their studies. After getting a detailed family history and vision history concerning your child, we’ll exam their eyes for:
- Nearsightedness, Farsightedness and Astigmatism
- Peripheral Acuity
- Proper Eye Focus and Movement
- Eye Teaming Skills
- Hand/Eye Coordination
We also offer innovative tests that allow us to see behind the eyes, which allows for early detection of conditions such as diabetes and glaucoma.
Get back to school ready with a comprehensive eye exam at Vision Source Castle Hills. Contact us today at 210-988-9517 to schedule an appointment. We also offer a 15% discount to new patients not using insurance or a vision plan!
