Children’s Vision

  • An individualized program of eye exercises and other methods can treat non-refractive vision problems such as eye alignment and “lazy eye.”
  • How often should your child's eyes be examined? What's the difference between a school vision screening and a comprehensive eye exam? and more.

  • Knowing the expected milestones of your baby's vision development during their first year of life can ensure your child is seeing properly and enjoying their world to the fullest.
  • Contact lenses offer advantages in the areas of sports and self-esteem. But when is your child old enough for contacts?
  • Gentle Vison Shaping also known as corneal refractive therapy (CRT) and orthokeratology involves fitting a special contact lens that actually corrects your vision while you sleep so that no contact lenses or glasses are needed during the day.  Many small studies have shown that correcting children's vision in this way can actually slow down or even stop their near sightedness (myopia) from getting worse.
