Seeing an eye doctor regularly can help ensure that all the members of the family continue to enjoy optimal vision including your children. Experts recommend that children have a comprehensive eye examination conducted by an eye doctor by the age of three, younger if the parents suspects that there may be a problem.
Regular yearly eye checkups are important for all the members of the family but especially for children to ensure that their eyes are developing normally and that their vision is strong and clear to help promote learning. There are some signs that your child may be having a problem with his/her vision and may benefit from kids eyewear in Niagara Falls from our optical shop. Signs of a potential vision problem include: squinting, covering one eye or tilting their head to one side, sitting too close to the television, difficulty in school, frequent headaches, frequently rubbing of the eyes, trouble reading, or holding reading material too close. If you notice any of these signs bring your child into our office and let our doctor evaluate whether the behavior is a sign of a vision problem.
