Everyone needs to have their eyes checked on a regular basis, especially children. While anyone can develop vision problems or eye health concerns, it is particularly important that children have their eyes examined regularly to make sure that their eyes and eyesight are developing normally. If your child is in need of a Northport children’s eye exam, then our expert pediatric eye specialists here at Vision Center cna help.
Vision Center has specialized in providing the eye care needs of Long Island and Queens communities for many years. Open six days a week, our optical offices offer a wide range of services, including comprehensive eye exams, contact lens exams and fittings, a wide range of optical goods, designer frames and accessories, as well as offering eyeglass repairs and more. Our staff does all they can to improve and maintain the eyesight of our patients, and kids are no different. Kids are just as likely as adults to develop eye problems, though kids are at risk for developmental concerns such as crossed eyes or lazy eyes as much as they are likely to develop more common conditions like nearsightedness. Early detection is key when it comes to issues such as crossed eyes or lazy eyes, otherwise known as strabismus and amblyopia. Catching the issue and treating it early can prevent a lifelong vision impairment. For other impairments, like nearsightedness and astigmatism, prescription glasses can be prescribed to improve your child’s eyesight so they can see the world around them clearly and in total comfort. With a Northport children’s eye exam, your kid’s eye health and eyesight can be looked at, diseases can be screened for, and any present issues can be treated.
If your child is due for a Northport children’s eye exam, then call us today at Vision Center. You can visit us at either one of our locations, whether it be in Greenlawn or in Whitestone NY.
