Pediatric Eye Care

The importance: 

The importance of a comprehensive child's exam cannot be understated. Eighty percent (80%) of what children learn is acquired through the visual processing of information. When children have an uncorrected prescription it can cause learning difficulties, decreased hand-eye-coordination, and possibly permanent vision reductions, known as amblyopia. Having regular eye examinations for your child is their best bet for success. At Carlson-Tillisch we recommend children's exams based on American Optometric Association's recommendations, which state that your child's first eye exam should be at 6 months - 1 year of age. Since we know how important this for children's healthy development, we are providers of InfantSEE, a public health program, which provides a no-cost eye assessment for infants under 1-year-old. 

.

What to expect for your child's exam: 

Since many children are unable to voice any issues with their vision a modified eye exam is performed.  The doctors at Carlson-Tillisch are all trained in pediatric eye care and special instruments and techniques are used to properly determine you child's vision and wellness, without needing any responses from your child. Many times at a child's first eye exam dilation will be performed. This allows the doctors to accurately determine their prescription and fully ensure their eye health.
